                           D
                Well I'd rather see you dead little girl
                        Bm
                Than to be with another man
                      D
                You better keep your head little girl
                        Bm
                Or you won't know where I am

chorus
E
                You better run for your life if you can little girl
                 Bm                    E
                Hide your head in the sand little girl
                 Bm                     G
                Catch you with another man
