RICH MAN'S WIFE
(STEVE DAFOE 2010)
(COPYRIGHTED)

VERSE 1:

A EM
SHE HIDES IN THE SHADOWS
HER SMILE IS A VEILED MASK
HIDING THE PAIN ONLY SHE KNOWS
A G
SHE WON'T TELL SO DON'T ASK
A G
SOLD A SOUL FOR ALL THESE WOES
.......FOR ALL THESE WOES

CHORUS 1 :

Amaj7 (1 STRUM + 2 FAST) Cm7 (1 STRUM)
SHE'S JUST A RICH MANS WIFE
JUST NUMBING HER PAIN
WITH THE USUAL DOSES OF GIN
G A
CHILLIN' AND KILLIN' HER TIME
G EM
IN HER LONELY LIFE
Amaj7 Cm7
AS A RICH MAN'S WIFE
.....A RICH MAN'S WIFE........


VERSE 2:

A EM
HER BURDEN IS ONLY HERS TO BEAR
SHE LIVED AND LOVED TRUE ONCE
HER BAD CHOICES GOT HER HERE
A G
SHE TRADED HER IT FOR HER SOUL
A G
SHE SOLD IT FOR ALL THE GOLD
.....FOR ALL THE GOLD


CHORUS 2 :

Amaj7 (1 STRUM + 2 FAST) Cm7 (1 STRUM)
SHE'S JUST A RICH MANS WIFE
HER CELL PHONE HER ONLY FRIEND
G A
AS SHE TEXT'S AND BLOG'S AWAY
G EM
SHE KNOWS WHY SHE HAS TO STAY
Amaj7 Cm7
AS A RICH MAN'S WIFE
.....A RICH MAN'S WIFE........


VERSE 3:

A EM
SHE REMEMBERS THE DAY IT WAS OVER
TO HER TRUE LOVE, SHE SENT ONE TEXT
THERE NO NEXT AND NO MORE CHANCE
A G
AT ANOTHER TRY AT THIS ROMANCE
A G
ANOTHER TRY AT THIS ROMANCE
.......TRY AT THIS ROMANCE

CHORUS 3 :

Amaj7 (1 STRUM + 2 FAST) Cm7 (1 STRUM)

SHE'S JUST A RICH MANS WIFE
JUST NUMBING HER PAIN
WITH THE USUAL DOSES OF GIN
G A
JUST CHILLIN' AND KILLIN' HER TIME
G A
IN HER LONELY LIFE

Amaj7 Cm7
AS A RICH MAN'S WIFE
.....A RICH MAN'S WIFE........


VERSE 4:

A EM
SHE LIVES IN HER OWN SHADOWS
A LONELY SOUL TO THE DAY SHE DIES
EVERY DAY BRINGS ONLY NEW LOWS
A G
AS SHE WATCHES THE DAYS GO BY
A G
SHE WATCHES THE DAYS GO BY

CHORUS 4 :

Amaj7 (1 STRUM + 2 FAST) Cm7 (1 STRUM)

SHE'S JUST A RICH MANS WIFE
HER BLACKBERRY HER ONLY FRIEND
G A
AS SHE TEXT'S AND BLOG'S AWAY
G A
SHE KNOWS WHY SHE HAS TO STAY
Amaj7 Cm7
AS A RICH MAN'S WIFE
....A RICH MAN'S WIFE........
