Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
They've taken her children away
[G]Because they [D]said she was [G]not a good [D]mother
Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
They've taken her children away
[G]Because she was [D]making it with [G]sisters and [D]brothers
And [G]everyone [D]else, [G]all of the [D]others
Like [G]cheap offi[D]cers who would
[G] [D] [A] [A6]^^^[As4]^(th[A]ese variations this verse only)
Stand there and flirt in front of me

[G]Ai[D]x [G]Gv[D]ii D Ds4 D

They've taken her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They've taken her children away
Because of the things that they said she had done
The black air-force sergeant was not the first one and
All of the drugs she took
[G]Every [D]one, every [A]one[A9] [A]
(Chorus)
A A9hA A9hA
And I am the water boy
The real game's not [D]over here[G] [D]
G D A A* A
But my heart is overflowing, anyw - a - y
A A9hA A9hA
I'm just the tired man
No [D]words to say, [G] [D] But
G A A9hA
Since she lost her daughter It's her
G A A9hA
Eyes that fill with water And
[G]I am much [A]happier this
Aix Gvii D Ds4 D

[G]Ai[D]x [G]Gv[D]ii D Ds4 D
[G] [D] [G] [D] [G] [D] [G] [D] [G] [D] [A]  
[D]  
They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because number one was the girlfriend from Paris
The things that they did they didn't have to ask us
And then the Welshmen from India, we came here to stay
They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because of the things she did in the streets
In the alleys and bars no she couldn't be beat
That miserable rotten slut couldn't turn anyone away

Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
[G]Ai[D]x [G]Gv[D]ii D Ds4 D

then suddenly, in ringing acoustic guitar
Av Giii D A
(Chorus)
