Intro: Am7 C/D G D7 Am D7 Am A D7 Am Am7 D7 Am D7 Am D7 Am D7 Am

D         Am7      G            Em     Am
My father told me, lying on his bed of death,
                 A                                          Em7  E7
"Boy," he says, "woman she's gonna make it, don't fool your self,
                 Am
'Cause she's got something to make a man, 
         D7
Lay that money, uh, right in her hand,
               C              G          D        Am
The very thing that makes her rich, will make you poor,
                    Am7       E7                  Am                Em Am G Am7
The very thing that makes her rich, will make you poor, that's right,

                Am7                   F#m6        Em7      C/D   D/A  E7 G A
Well, I put you behind the wheel of a deuce and a quarter, yes I did,
Em7     Am7           Em7        A               E7
Had you living like a rich man's daughter, yes I did, I sure did,
               Am
While you were living high on the hog,
Am7        D                   C#aug  D
You had me down here scuffling like a dog,
               C                    G     D        Am  A7 D7
Well, the very thing that makes you rich, makes me poor,
                    Am7       E7             Am
The very thing that makes you rich, makes me poor,

Solo: G6 A D6 Am C6 D G C6 D6 G6 Am D6 C6 Em7 C6 
Em7 C6 Em7 Am G6 Am G6 Am D Am6 D6 Am D6 Am C/G Am6

          Am         Em7                A   D
Don't you never ever make such a bad mistake,
         G6         Am                          Em7
You know I'd rather climb into bed with a rattlesnake,
        Am             Am7                D
Then to work hard every day bringing that woman all my pay,
         C                    G     D        Am  D7
The very thing that makes you rich, makes me poor,
D7
Makes me so damn poor,
                         E7             Am  D7
The thing that makes her rich, makes me poor,
         C                    G     D       Am   D7
The very thing that makes you rich, make me poor,
                Am7       E7             Am  D7
Very thing that makes you rich, makes me poor,
D7
Makes me so damned poor,
G6          Am7           D7
Money won't change it, no no. (Then repeat)
