    Am: (x02210)D6/9/A: (x04430)

    B11/A: (x05550)Am6: (x04210)

    Intro

    Am   D6/9/A    B11/A  D6/9/A (x2)

           

    I kissed you cause I've never been an angel

    I learned to say hosannas on my knees

    But they Am threw me out of Sunday school

    When I was Am6 nine

    And the Am sisters said I E did just as I Am pleased

    Am   D6/9/A    B11/A  D6/9/A

    Even so I try to be a good girl

    It's only what I want that makes me weak

    I had no desire to be a child of sin

    Then you went and pressed your whiskers to my cheek

    Chorus

    A Fa la la la, G Fa la la lee

    Now F let me go, my honey oh

    C Back to TennesGsee

    It's C beef steak when I'm working

    G Whiskey when I'm dry

    F Sweet heaven G when I A die

    Intro

    Now I've tried drinking rye and gamblin'

    Dancing with damnation is a ball

    But of all the little ways I've found to hurt myself

    Well you might be my favorite one of all

    Chorus

     

    Why can't I go and live the life of Reilly

    Why can't I go back home to apple pie?

    'Cause your affront to my virtue was a touch too much

    But you left a little twinkle in my eye

    Chorus then intro chords (x2)

    Now some will come confessing of transgressions

    Some will come confessing of their love 

    You were there strumming on your gay guitar

    You were trying to tell me something with your thumb

    Chorus

    It's C beef steak when I'm working

    G Whiskey when I'm dry

    F Sweet heaven G when I A die

    It's C beef steak when I'm working

    G Whiskey when I'm dry

    F Sweet heaven G when I A die
