Key d demo recorded by hank williamsprobably 1949.

(d) now I’ve been married about six months
Only six (d7) months you (g) see
The (a7) first three monthswas all ok
But the last three is killin’ (d) me
My wife began her hissin’cut down on her kissin’
And then she failed to (d7) shine my (g) shoes
My (a7) shirts they came up wrinkled
My pants with dirt were sprinkled
And then I took the first year (d) blues.

(d) well then she started naggin’
She left the sink a’saggin’
With dishes (d7) piled up (g) high
No (a7) food upon the tableshe said if she was able
She’d cook something bye and (d) bye
Then I began to wonderif I had made a blunder
When I (d7) said I (g) doshe (a7) must have read my thinkin’
Her eyes began to blinkin’ and that gal broke in -(d) - to.

(d) well I heard the dishes crashin’
And I began to dashin’gettin’ (d7) out of (g) sight
For (a7) right there was my honey
On who I’d spent my moneyturnin’ into dy - na - (d) - mite
Then after she’d explodedher meanness all unloaded
And things began to (d7) simmer (g) down
I (a7) found myself a’bleedin’and very much a’needin’
Of stitches taken all a - (d) - round.

(d) well then she started cryin’I felt myself a’sighin’
And then I took her (d7) in my (g) arms
I (a7) was afraid to scold herso I just gently told her
She didn’t do a bit of (d) harm
Now the first six months is overand I am much the older
And experienced (d7) with a (g) wife
If (a7) I can stand the next sixmy friends all say I’ll be fixed
To take it the rest of my (d) life.
