Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Out Of Jail  Waylon Jennings

        [C/G]I sat at a bar having a beer
        Tr[F]yin' to h[G]old down the[C/G] stool
When a stranger walked in - stood there beside me
        And pl[F]opped down th[G]ere like a f[C/G]ool
He started drinkin' then he started talkin'
        About th[F]ings that were wr[G]ong in his [C/G]life
        The m[F]ore that i heard the [C/G]more i believed
        The thing that was wr[G]ong was his [C/G]wife
Verse 2:
        [C/G]You talk about beauty,when we first met
      [F]  She was all a m[G]an could de[C/G]sire
Talk about love,one night with her
      [F]  Would set your very s[G]oul on [C/G]fire
But loves little flame is out of control
      [F]  About three feet h[G]igh from be[C/G]hind
      [F]  Ever since we've been married,well i've [C/G]come to believe
        That love's for the d[G]umb and the b[C/G]lind
Verse 3:
        [C/G]'Cause you talk about ugly,when she gets mad
      [F]  She goes from J[G]ekill to Hyde[C/G]
She grits her teeth and her eyes roll back
      [F]  And pivot from s[G]ide to [C/G]side
She completely rewrites the whole English language
        Descr[F]iptive[G],four-lettered[C/G] and loud
        Now i [F]can't out think her,but i [C/G]can sure out drink her
        And that's what i'm doing h[G]ere now[C/G]
Verse 4:
        I[F]'ve spent seven years with the [C/G]wrong woman
        S[F]even and going on eight[C/G]
        S[F]he spent seven years n[C/G]aggin' and eatin'
        I'm overwrought and sh[G]e's overweight
        I[F]f i try leavin[C/G]' she has me arrested
        A[F]nd takes her own sweet time gettin' me[C/G] out
        I[F]f she ain't number on[C/G]e,she's in the top two
        [F]Of things that i could l[G]ive wit[C/G]hout
Verse 5:
        M[F]en commit murder and [C/G]all kinds of mayhem
        In [F]a few years they're back on the st[C/G]reets
        H[F]ighway robbery and w[C/G]hite collar crime
        And they laugh at the system they b[G]eat
        Somet[F]imes i'm tempted - some[C/G]times i'm ashamed
        Of the th[F]ings that the law will al[C/G]low
        I c[F]ould have killed her [C/G]when i first met her
        And i'd have been out of j[G]ail by [C/G]now
          I c[F]ould have killed her [C/G]when we first met
        And i've have been out of j[G]ail by [C/G]now
