The chords should line up so that they are above the appropriate lyric. If they do not line up properly, it's probably because you need to set your browser's "Fixed Font" to Courier or Monaco. Any other problems? Please e-mail me and let me know what type of browser you are using and what platform you are running on.

Intro:
A    /    D    /

Verse:

     G     /     /     /    Em    /   /
Oh I hate to see you with a girl like that

/        Bm    /    D         /         G    /    /
Well she drags your laundry through the street

/   C    /    /   /   D   /   /
And never washes your feet

/    Em    /     /     /    D     /   /
Oh I hate to see you with a girl like that

/        C     /    /    /     G   /   /   /
Well she don't know much about you

    Em   /     /    /    D   /   /   /   D   /   /
She don't know how to be true

  /         C /  /   /   D   /   /
I know it's hard finding girls

   /    C / / /G   /   /
In this modern world

     /   C /  /  / D   /   /
When you lost your true

     /  Em/ / / D   /   /   /   D   /   /
Well it hurt me too

D    /    /    /     D    /   /
Do you remember when you were choosy

/       D      /    /    /   D   /   /   /
And she had to have character

D   /   /   /    D       /      /
Don't you recall when all girls all

/   D  /   /   /   D7   /   /
Had soul beyond compare

     G     /     /     /    Em    /   /
Oh I hate to see you with a girl like that

/        Bm   /   D   /    G    /    /    /
Well she stands around and smirks

/   C   /    /   /  G    /    /
And never sews your shirts

/     Em    /     /     /    D     /   /
Yes I hate to see you with a girl like that

/          C  /    /   /  G    /    /
She should never open her mouth

/           Em  /   /   /  D  /  /  /  D  /  /   /
She needs a one way ticket south

Verse:

  /         C /  /   /   D   /   /
I know it's hard finding smiles

     /   C  /  /   /  G   /   /
When you know all the while

     /    C / /  / D   /   /
That this love you see

    /     Em / / / D   /   /   /   D   /   /   /
Was never meant to be

D    /    /    /     D    /   /
Do you remember when you were choosy

/       D      /    /    /   D   /   /   /
And she had to have character

D   /   /   /    D       /      /
Don't you recall when all girls all

/   D  /   /   /   D7   /   /
Had soul beyond compare

  G     /     /     /    Em    /   /
I hate to see you with a girl like that

/        Bm   /   D      /       G    /    /
Well she don't do nothing but complain

/   C    /     /    /   D   /   /
She hears all music the same

/    Em    /     /     /    D     /   /
Oh I hate to see you with a girl like that

/        C     /    /    /     G   /   /   /
Well she gives you nothing but the blues

    Em   /     /    /     D   /   /   /   D   /   /
She can't even shine your shoes

       G     /     /     /    Em    /   /
Yeah I hate to see you with a girl like that

Well she drags your laundry through the street

And never washes your feet
