LYRICS:
play intro

Hey little jail bait tell me your story
Let me bum a smoke and we can chat a while
I want to see you talk straight so let me hear your story
Before you get off and make your change

play 2nd line of intro

PRE-CHORUS
        D             E                A              F#
You see lately I've found that there's hell going 'round
          Dsus2                E           A
And honey you've given one big chase to my strain

CHORUS
G                Dsus2                     A
   Talkin bout a woman who's lost a lot of days in this life
G                Dsus2                 A
   Talkin bout a woman who just can't say no
G                    Dsus2                        A
   She needs another lover like she needs another dose in her blood
G                Dsus2               A    F#m6   Dsus2   E
   Talkin bout a woman who's name is Candy
         A    F#m6   Dsus2   E
She's so fine

      A            F#m6          Dsus2    E
She's waiting on a back street line
A           F#m6      Dsus2            A*   A/G#   A7/G
Like a lost angel not long for this world


Don't usually get emotional don't usually show my veins she said
Only when I sing or when I'm making tracks
Sweatin's just a mean way to show me where I am
And to tell me where I need to be

PRE-CHORUS
And through those eyes if she wore her disguise
I'd see through it and say come in from the rain girl the rain girl

CHORUS

Talkin bout a woman she loves me like a dog loves a bone
Talkin about a woman who just can't let go
I need her as my lover like I need another hole in my head
I'm talkin about a woman I know Candy
She's so fine

But she's shaking on that back street line
A            F#m6    Dsus2         A*   A/G#   A7/G
Like a loose cannon ashamed to explode

A*	A/G#	A7/G	A(V)

CHORUS
ad-lib vocals
G	Dsus2	A
G	Dsus2	A
G                   Dsus2            A*   A/G#   A7/G
   When will I learn     to let you go

          A*   A/G#   A7/G
You're my Candy
A*             A/G#      A7/G          A(V)
You're my lost angel not long for this world
