[VERSE 1]
G*                     A7/G 
     Man got his woman      to take his seed
Am7/G                      G
     He got the power, oh,   she got the need
G*                               A7/G 
     She spends her life through,     pleasin' up her man
Am7/G                      G
     Feeds him dinner or,    anything she can

F/G            C/G               G     (bass fill = G A Bb B)
   She cries a-lone at night too often  
Bm                Bbm                              Am   Dsus2

   Only women bleed,   Only women bleed,   Only women bleed


[VERSE 2]
G*                             A7/G 
      Man makes your hair grey,     he's your life's mistake
Am7/G                               G
      all you're really lookin' for   is an even break
G*                         A7/G 
      He lies right at you,     you know you hate this game
Am7/G                                  G
      Slaps you once in awhile and you live and love in pain

F/G            C/G               G     (bass fill = G A Bb B)
   She cries a-lone at night too often  
Bm                 Bbm                         Am    Dsus2
