A                D          E       A      A
I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
Well I've freed my head from your garden rails

           D     E       A
Now it's a legal matter, baby
    D      E      A
You got me on the run
       D     E       A
It's a legal matter, baby
  D                     E           
A legal matter from now on

My mind's lost in a household fog
Wedding gowns and catalogs
Kitchen furnishings and houses
Maternity clothes and baby's trousers

It's a legal matter, baby
Marryin's no fun
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

[repeat intro riff]

|| A    | A   | A   | G/D  D ||

I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
Well, I've freed my head from your garden rails

Now it's a legal matter, baby
You got me on the run
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

| A    | A   | A    | A   |

   A                        D         E 
You ain't the first and you ain't the last
  A                D     E

I gain and lose my women fast
  A             D         E
I never want to make them cry
  A                     D      E
I just get bored, don't ask me why

D                           
I just wanna keep doing all the dirty little things I do
E
And not work all day in an office just to bring my money back to you
A
Sorry, baby

[repeat intro pattern]
