There’s No Use ~ Words & Music by James E Burns ~ 12/8/05
( 1 )
(E) I came home I sure was stinkin’
(B7) From another (E) night of drinkin’
If looks could kill I (A) would be dead,
She (B7) stared right thru me (E) and she said.
( Chorus )
(A) Listen good to (E) what I say
If you (B7) hope to see a(E)nother day.
Your (A) runnin 'round all (E) night is done.
This (B7) nightmare, boy, has (E) just begun.
(1) ~ (A) One more thing don't (E) ever lie.
I (B7) swear I'll punch you (E) in the eye.
( 2 )
(E) Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall,
(B7) I got to have my (E) alcohol.
And when I feel I’m (A) gettin’ sober
(B7) What the heck I (E) just start over. She said.... ( Chorus )
(2) ~ (A) One more thing I'm (E) warnin' you.
(B7) Try to run I (E) will hurt you.
( 3 )
(E) At my favorite drinkin’ place
(B7) I can fall flat (E) on my face.
And goin’ home to (A) what I do,
A (B7) face that should be (E) in the zoo. She said.... ( Chorus )
(3) ~ (A) One more thing a (E) woman calls.
(B7) I'll kick you dead square (E) in the balls.
( 4 )
She (E) finally had enough of me
(B7) Said that we were (E) history.
I said to go and (A) take it all
(B7) Just don’t touch my (E) alcohol. She said.... ( Chorus )
(4) ~ (A) One more thing I (E) catch you high.
I'll (B7) punch you in your (E) other eye.
( 5 )
She (E) packed her bags and hit the road
I (B7) wish that sooner (E) I had knowed
The only reason (A) I stayed drunk,
My (B7) fat ex-wife smelled (E) like a skunk. She said... ( Chorus )
(5) ~ (A) One more thing that (E) should be said.
(B7) Come home late I'll (E) burn your bed.
( 6 )
The (E) time has come to end this tune
I (B7) hope that you all (E) come back soon.
We’ll drink and dance and (A) bar-b-que
And (B7) run around all (E) naked too. She said.... ( Chorus )
(6) ~ (A) One last thing, boy, (E) if you laugh,
I’ll (B7) slice you pride and (E) joy in half
