1. I was standing in line at the city bus stop,

†††† ††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††A

††† soaked to skin from every rain drop.

†† †††††D†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

††† I see you driving by like a phantom jet,

†††††† ††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††† †††A††††† ††††††D

††† with your arm around some little brunette.

2. You say you won't be home because you're working late,

††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††A

††† honey, I'm no foo,l you've been out on a date.

††††† D††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

††† Lipstick on your collar gives your game away,

††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - A†††††††††††† D

††† strawberry red, and mine's†††††† pink rose.

Have mercy on me, you treat me so bad I'm in misery.

†††††††† D††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

Itís breaking my heart, can't you see ?

Baby, baby, have mercy on me !

3. Well, I called you up on the telephone,

†††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† I could hear you were playing Hackerty and Jones.

††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† I knew right then there was something wrong,

††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - A††††††††††††††††† D

††† there's only one reason you play††††††† cheating songs.

4. Well, I went to the bank with my little check book,

††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† the cashier, he gave me the strangest look.

††† He said, you ††††††††ain't got no money 'cause you're overdrawn,

†††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - A ††††††††††D

††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Itís breaking my heart, can't you see ?

Baby, baby, have mercy on me !
