                         "Cheaper To Keep Her"
                              (Mack Rice)

Intro:

	C9   Db9  C9    Db9  [2X]
	/ / / /   / / / /

	(spoken:) You tied up, you better stay tied up, 'cause it's cheaper
        	  to keep her - this is from T, who says:

	      C7
	It's cheaper to keep her
	      F7
	It's cheaper to keep her

Verse 1:

	 C7
	When your little girl makes you mad
	 F7
	And you get an attitude and pack your bags
	 G7
	Five little children that you're leavin' behind
	 F7
	Son, you're gonna pay some alimony or do some time

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/johnnie_taylor/cheaper_to_keep_her_crd.html ]
	                  C7
	That's why it's cheaper to keep her (1: help me say it, y'all)
	      F7                            (2: everybody sing along with me)
	It's cheaper to keep her (it's cheaper to keep her)
	     G7
	[1: When you get through starin']        that judge in the face
	[2: By the time you get through lookin']
	        F7
	You're gonna want to cuss the whole human race
	                  C7
	That's why it's cheaper to keep her (it's cheaper to keep her)
	Eb7
	   [2: It's cheaper to keep her] (it's cheaper to keep her)
	        C7
	(It's cheaper, it's cheaper, it's cheaper, it's cheaper)
	(It's cheaper to keep her)

Verse 2:

	You didn't pay but two dollars to bring the little girl home
	Now you're about to pay two thousand to leave her alone
	You see another woman out there and you want to make a change
	She ain't gonna want you 'cause you won't have a damn thing

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	I know you think the grass is greener
	Way over on the other side
	When that judge gives you that dirty look
	You may as well put your money in mama's pocketbook

Coda [background voices continue to fade]:

	                  C7
	That's why it's cheaper to keep her (it's cheaper to keep her)
	                      Eb7
	It costs too much to leave her alone, yeah
	             C7
	I know it's cheaper to keep her
	                             Eb7
	'Cause you're gonna pay some alimony if you leave home
	                     C7
	I tell y'all - it's cheaper to keep her - all the fellows I know
		are talkin' about it
	      Eb7
	It's cheaper to keep her, I gotta tell you

	[continue to fade]
