[verse 1] 
Well I'd ra[D]ther see you dead little girl
Than to [Bm]be with another man
You be[D]tter keep your head little girl
Or you w[Bm]on't know where I am
[cborus] E
You better run for your life if you can little girl
H[Bm]ide your head in the s[E]and little girl
C[Bm]atch you with another m[G]an
T[F#]hat's the [Bm]end little girl.[D]
