DRUM  VERSES (Chords shown, strike once..then drums only until riff)

E 
Well, I guess it was back in '63

When eatin' my cookin' got the better of me                 lead guitar
                                                       E  (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)
So I asked this little girl I was goin' with to be my wife


E
Well, she said she would...So I said,'I do'

But I'da said, 'I wouldn't'.If I'da just knew how sayin' 'I do'
 	  	  	   E   (E-G-A-B-A-G-E )
Was gonna screw up all o' my life


E
Well, the first few years weren't all that bad

I'll never forget the good times we had
                                                             E  (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)
Cause I'm reminded every month when I send her the child sup-port


E
Well, it wasn't too long til the lust all died

And I'll admit I wasn't too surprised
 	  	  	  	  	               E    (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)
The day I came home and found my suitcase sittin'out on the porch


CHORDED VERSES 

E
Well, I tried to get in, she changed the lock
A
....Then I found this note taped on the mailbox that said
B                                             E  (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)         
....'Goodbye, turkey...My attorney will be in touch'


E
So I decided right then and there
A
...I was gonna do what's right...Give 'er her fair share
B                       	  	                        E   (E-G-A-B-A-G-E )
...But, brother, I didn't know her share was gonna be that much

CHORUS
             A
She got the gold mine (She got the gold mine)
          E
I got the shaft (I got the shaft)
      A
They split it right down the middle
              (stop)                     B(Bass Note)
And then they  give   her the better half
         E
Well, it all sounds sorta funny
       A
But it hurts too much to laugh
             E        B           E
She got the gold mine,..I got the shaft


DRUM VERSES
E
Now listen up...you ain't heard nothin' yet

Why, they give 'er the color televison set
 	  	  	  	  	           E   (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)      
Then they give 'er the house, the kids and both of the cars

See

E
Well, then they started talkin' about child support,
 
alimony..And the costs to the court
                                                          E  (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)
Didn't take me long to figure out how far in the toilet I was


CHORDED VERSES
E
I'm tellin' ya, they have made a mistake
A
..'Cause it adds up to more than this cowboy makes
B 	                                                     E  (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)
..Besides, everythin' I ever had worth takin'they've already took

E
While she's livin' like a queen on alimony
A
...I'm workin' two shifts, eatin' baloney
B 	  	  	  	  	       E   (E-G-A-B-A-G-E)
...Askin' myself, 'Why didn't you just learn how to cook?'


CHORUS
                  A
They give her the gold mine (She got the gold mine)
                 E
They give me the shaft (I got the shaft)
                A
They said they splittin’ it all down the middle
   (stop)                  B(Bass Note)
But she got the better half
         E
Well, it all sounds sorta funny
        A
But it hurts too much to laugh
             E        B            E    
She got the gold mine,..I got the shaft
