My life's in jeopardy


Murdered in cold blood is what I'm gonna be

D Dsus4 D E B

I ain't been home since Friday night and now my wife is comin' after me



Give me police protection,

G E Esus4 E

Gonna buy a gun so I can look after number one

D Dsus4 D G

Give me a bodyguard, a black belt Judo expert

F# (F#7 F F#7 F)

With a machine gun.


[repeat intro]



Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane

G E Esus4 E

When she catches up with me won't be no time to explain

D Dsus4 D E

She thinks I've been with another woman and that's enough


To send her half insane


C#m G E Esus4 E

Gonna buy a fast car, put on my lead boots and take a long, long drive

D Dsus4 D G F#....

I may end up spending all my money, but I'll still be alive.


E F#

All I did was have a bit too much to drink

B C#m C#m B/C#m

And I picked the wrong precinct

E F# B

Got picked up by the law and now I ain't got time to think.


||: B | B A/B :||


[horn for guitar]




[repeat second verse]


And I'm oh, so tired of running

Gonna lay down on the floor

I gotta rest sometime

So I can get to run some more, yeah!


She's comin'

She's comin'
