Corrupting My Better Half  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[A]Cutest girl I ever saw, did I love her?
Then [Dm]why'd I go and do something so c[A]ruel?
I m[Dm]arried her on that summer day, did I l[A]ove [Dm]her?
Well [A]she said 'yes' so she m[E]ust have been a f[A]ool.

[A]On our honeymoon night, instead of making sweet love
I [Dm]sat her down and confessed my true histo[A]ry.
I said, '[Dm]Baby, I love you and I hope you know you're a g[A]ift from a[Dm]bove,
But I k[A]illed twenty men and the d[E]evil's after [A]me.


Well [E]she said that's okay, I don't care dear, cause I l[Dm]ove you anyw[A]ays.
Honey a [E]man's gotta do what a man's gotta do so be s[Dm]trong, and be b[A]rave.
Well I'll [Cm]try, you know I'll [E]try.


And G[A]od said, 'It is g[E]ood, and [Dm]man and woman s[A]hould,
Become [A]one and be f[E]ruitful. Well we w[Dm]ould, if we c[A]ould,
But we're r[A]unning from the l[E]aw and li[Dm]ving in a sh[A]ack,
And I[A]'m gonna burn in h[E]ell for cor[Dm]rupting my better h[A]alf.

Alright, those are the chord progressions for the different parts of the song. I'll put
lyrics for the next two verses up since you can't find the lyrics for this anywhere online.

Verse 2:
Cruisin' down the highway going 95.
We're robbing convenience stores and trying to stay alive.
I'm sorry I killed that man back there can you ever forgive me,
For bringing you into my life when I should've let you be.


Then he does a little 'solo,' which is just playing through the verse chords once. If
lift your finger off the 2nd string in the A chord and the first string the Dm chord every
and a while it sounds sort of like what he does.

Verse 3:
Well the cops found our hideout and they shot her.
Why'd they go and do something so cruel.
She died in my arms I had to leave her.
I'm sorry my love for being such a fool.

Final Chorus Lyrics:
And God said, 'It is good, and man and woman should
Become one and be fruitful.' Well I would, if I could.
But I'm running from the law and the cops shot down my shack.
And I'm gonna burn in hell for corrupting my better half...
I'm gonna burn in hell for corrupting my better half...
I'm gonna burn in hell for killing my better half.

And that should be it. If I forgot anything, you can probably figure it out for
If I can tab this, anyone can.
