Criminal

Fiona Apple



 C minor pentatonic bass groove
  x 8    Guitar: C7

I've been a bad bad girl
I've been careless with a delicate man
And it's a sad sad world
When a girl will break a boy
Just because she can

Don't you tell me to deny it
I've done wrong and I want to
Suffer for my sins
I've come to you ^Ñcause I need
Guidance to be true
And I just don't know where I can begin

What I need is a good defense
^Ñcause I'm feelin' like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed
To the one I've sinned against
Because he's all I ever knew of love

Heaven help me for the way I am
save me from these evil deeds
Before I get them done
I know tomorrow brings the consequence at hand
But I keep livin' this day like the next one will never come

Oh help me but don't tell me to deny it
I've got to cleanse myself of all these lies ^Ñtil I'm good enough for
him
I've got a lot to lose and I'm bettin' high
So I'm beggin' you before it ends
Just tell me where to begin

chorus x1

 C minor pentatonic bass groove
  x 4    Guitar: C7

Let me know the way before there's hell to pay
Give me room to lay the law and let me go
I've got to make a play to make my lover stay
So what would an angel say
The devil wants to know

footnote: I tried this version out with my band (we're a 3-piece: drums,
bass, & guitar-with a chick singer) and it worked out well! I think if
a band did this number "Unplugged" it would come across very 'cool' to
the audience.
