[G] [/] [G/Am7/D]  
We've talk[G]ed it to death, cryin' on the telephone.[Am7]
Nights when he drinks at home, [C]
she has [D]to whisper throught her tears.[G/Am7-D/]
"Johnny," she says, "you'd never do these things to me."[Am7]
[C] [D] 
But I can neve[Em/E]r make her see he's wasted such precious years.
Well, "you marrie[Am7]d the wrong guy" is all I ever say[D].[G]
[G]He's a no good so and [E]so, but she'[Am]ll never let him go.[Ab+]
Though she knows it will never work, she loves the jer[G]k.
[C]She loves the jerk.[G/Am7-D/]
2nd Verse
[G]He was the guy always out on the make.[Am7]
[C] [D] 
I guess he had what it takes to t[G/Am7-D/]urn the heads of pretty girls.
She thought he would change; the worst of us will settle down.[Am7]
[C] [D] 
But he couldn't stay out of to[Em/E]wn, not even with this precious pearl.
[Am7] [D] 
Now she lives with the li[G]es and the bumps and the bruises.
[G7]Well, I[C] hang up the phone an[D]d I pretend she's in[B7] my arms.[Em]
[C]What I wouldn't give fo[B7]r just one-tenth [Em]
D E (Key modulates from G to
[A)]of what she gives Mister Charming.
[A]He's a no good so and [F#]so, but she'l[Bm]l never let him go.[Bb+]

Though she knows it will never work, she loves the jerk.
She loves the jerk.
