An acoustic guitar plays straight chords and accompanies the vocals:

[verse 1]
		           D
		Well I'd rather see you dead little girl
		        Bm
		Than to be with another man
	              D
		You better keep your head little girl
	                Bm
		Or you won't know where I am

[chorus]	        	                     E
		You better run for your life if you can little girl
		 Bm                    E
		Hide your head in the sand little girl
		 Bm                     G  
		Catch you with another man
		 F#        Bm               D
		That's the end little girl.

[verse2]
		          D
		Well you know that I'm a wicked guy
		           Bm
		And I was born with a jealous mind

		And I can spend my whole life
		                Bm
		Tryin' just to make you tow the line.
