He Thinks Hell Keep Her

 (intro)                          

 GGEmC
   She makes his coffee, she makes his bed
 GGEmC
   She does the laundry, she keeps him fed
 DDAmAm
   When she was twenty-one she wore her mother's lace
 DDEm-CD
   She said forever with a smile upon her face

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

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

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)

 DDAmAm
For fifteen years she had a job and not one raise in pay
 DDEm-CD
   Now she's in the typing pool at minimum wage

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
