I Wanna Learn A Love Song G

I come Am fresh from the street, D7 fast on my feet C Kinda crass and G corny
Not much Am meat on my bones, D7 and a whole lot alone
And C more than a little bit G horny

Dm The old six-string was C all I had To Am keep my belly Em still
And for Am each full hour D7 lesson I gave I got a C crisp ten dollar G bill
————————————————————————————————–
She was Am married for D7 seven years To a C concrete castle G king
She Am said she wanted to learn to D7 play the guitar
And to C hear her children G sing

Dm So I’d show up about C once a week In my Am faded tight-legged Em jeans
With a Am backlog full of D7 hobo stories And C dilapidated C dreams

Ch{ G She said, I want to learn a love song Am Full of happy things
D She said, I want to learn a love song Won’t you C let me hear you G sing

G She said, I, I want to learn a love song Am I want to hear you play
She said, I, D I want to learn a love song C Before you Am go G away

So Am I tried to teach her a D7 couple of chords And an C easy G melody
But Am it always turned out she’d rather D7 listen C To my guitar and G me

Dm I could hear her old man C laughin’ in the den Am Playin’ stud poker with the Em boys
While I Am sang so soft in the D7 living room Too C scared to make much C noise
————————————————————————————————
I Am came one week, and the D7 den was dark And she C met me at the G door
And we Am sat on the couch, and we D7 sang and talked Til I C could not sing no G more

The Dm silence kept on C buildin’ Her Am eyes grew much too Em wide
And I could Am hear both of our D7 heartbeats But C there was no place to C hide

Ch{
Well, I Am guess you know what D7 happened I never C been so G clean
Yes, I Am feel like I’m workin’ in a D7 Hollywood movie
Or C livin’ out a good bad G dream

And Dm all them pin-up girls in that C tinsel world
Never Am touched me like she Em can
It took Am another man’s wife in the D7 real world life To C make this G boy a man
Ch{ I guess you know I stayed
