She Loves the Jerk by John Hiatt (From "Riding with the King" CD)
also Covered by Rodney Crowell  


INTRO  G / G/Am7/D
          G                                                    
We've talked it to death, cryin' on the telephone.
Am7                               C
Nights when he drinks at home, 
        D                            G/Am7-D/G
She has to whisper throught her tears.
G                                                      Am7
"Johnny," she says, "you'd never do these things to me."
                Em/E                      C           D
But I can never make her see he's wasted such precious years.
                 Am7                               D            G
Well, "you married the wrong guy" is all I ever say.


CHORUS
G                     E           Am                    Ab+
He's a no good so and so, but she'll never let him go.
                     D                              G
Though she knows it will never work, she loves the jerk.
C                      G/Am7-D/  
She loves the jerk.

2nd Verse
G                                                     Am7
He was the guy always out on the make.
  C          D
I guess he had what it takes to turn the heads of pretty girls.
       G                                                Am7   C- D
She thought he would change; the worst of us will settle down.
                     Em/E                                Am7
But he couldn't stay out of town, not even with this precious pearl.
    D                        G               
Now she lives with the lies and the bumps and the bruises.

REPEAT CHORUS, THEN BRIDGE

BRIDGE
G7     C                    D                   B7                    Em 
Well, I hang up the phone and I pretend she's in my arms.
C                      B7                    Em
What I wouldn't give for just one-tenth 
                    D                          
E   (Key modulates from G to A)
"Of what she gives Mister Charming."

CHORUS (Now in E)
A                     F#           Bm                    Bb+
He's a no good so and so, but she'll never let him go.
                     E                             E7
                         
Though she knows it will never work, she loves the jerk.
N.C.   
She loves the jerk.
