Drive-by Truckers - Wife Beater tab

Off of Gangstabilly

Tuned down a whole step

You met him at the dance hall
You only saw his charms
    C                                 G
You said he really swept you off your feet

Then one night heís drinking
and jealousy enraged
   C                             G
He knocked out two of your front teeth

G                   D
so you came over to hide out at my place
C                                          G
I guess I should have killed him there and then
but you begged me not to
now you say heís changed
    C                       G
and youíre gonna go back to him

G                             D
Donít give me that bull about how itís for the children
C                                G
A man like that could never be a dad
What happens when he kills you?
What will they do then?
C                                   G
Sometimes you ought to ask yourself that

C                           G
Donít go back to him heís a wife beater
     D                        G
Youíd be better off with this potato eater
C                           G    Em
You say heís changed, donít be a fool
G                    D        G 
A man like thatís no good for you
G                    D        G
A man like thatís no good for you
