He Thinks Hell Keep Her  Mary Chapin Carpenter










------------------------------------------------



[G](int[G]ro) [Em]     [C]      [G]    [G]    [Em]     [C]

[G]  She makes his [G]coffee,[Em] she makes his b[C]ed
[G]  She does the [G]laundry,[Em] she keeps him f[C]ed
[D]  When she was [D]twenty-one she wo[Am]re her mother's l[Am]ace
[D]  She said for[D]ever with a [Em]smil[-]e up[C]on her f[D]ace

She does the carpool, she PTA's
Doctors and dentists, she drives all day
When she was twenty-nine she delivered number three
And every christmas card showed a perfect family

[G]  Everyth[D]ing runs right on t[C]ime, years of pr[D]actice and des[G]ign
Spit and p[D]olish till it sh[C]ines, he thinks he'll [D]keep her
[G]  Everyth[D]ing is so ben[C]ign, safest pl[D]ace you'll ever f[G]ind
God forb[D]id you'd change your m[C]ind, he thinks he'll [D]keep her
[G](ins[G]trum[Em]ental[C])

She packs his suitcase, she sits and waits
With no expression upon her face
When she was thirty-six she met him at the door
She said, "I'm sorry, I don't love you anymore"

Everything runs right on time, years of practice and design
Spit and polish till it shines, he thinks he'll keep her
Everything is so benign, safest place you'll ever find
God forbid you'd change your mind, he thinks he'll keep her
(4 bars of instrumental)

For [D]fifteen years she h[D]ad a job and n[Am]ot one raise in p[Am]ay
[D]  Now she's in the t[D]yping pool at[Em] mi[-]ni[C]mum wa[D]ge

Everything runs right on time, years of practice and design
Spit and polish till it shines, he thinks he'll keep her
Everything is so benign, safest place you'll ever find
At least until you change your mind, he thinks he'll keep her
