"Cheaper To Keep Her"

(Mack Rice)

Intro:

C9 Db9 C9 Db9 [2X]

/ / / / / / / /

(spoken:) You tied up, you better stay tied up, 'cause it's cheaper

to keep her - this is from T, who says:

C7

It's cheaper to keep her

F7

It's cheaper to keep her

Verse 1:

C7

When your little girl makes you mad

F7

And you get an attitude and pack your bags

G7

Five little children that you're leavin' behind

F7

Son, you're gonna pay some alimony or do some time

Chorus:

C7

That's why it's cheaper to keep her (1: help me say it, y'all)

F7 (2: everybody sing along with me)

It's cheaper to keep her (it's cheaper to keep her)

G7

[1: When you get through starin'] that judge in the face

[2: By the time you get through lookin']

F7

You're gonna want to cuss the whole human race

C7

That's why it's cheaper to keep her (it's cheaper to keep her)

Eb7

[2: It's cheaper to keep her] (it's cheaper to keep her)

C7

(It's cheaper, it's cheaper, it's cheaper, it's cheaper)

(It's cheaper to keep her)

Verse 2:

You didn't pay but two dollars to bring the little girl home

Now you're about to pay two thousand to leave her alone

You see another woman out there and you want to make a change

She ain't gonna want you 'cause you won't have a damn thing

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

I know you think the grass is greener

Way over on the other side

When that judge gives you that dirty look

You may as well put your money in mama's pocketbook

Coda [background voices continue to fade]:

C7

That's why it's cheaper to keep her (it's cheaper to keep her)

Eb7

It costs too much to leave her alone, yeah

C7

I know it's cheaper to keep her

Eb7

'Cause you're gonna pay some alimony if you leave home

C7

I tell y'all - it's cheaper to keep her - all the fellows I know

are talkin' about it

Eb7

It's cheaper to keep her, I gotta tell you

[continue to fade]
