If The Law Don't Want You.
Rodney Crowell & Norah Jones.
Album: Kin.
Capo 5.

Intro: G Em7 A Em7 A 

A                  Am7                  G
I love to see them straw dogs 'round my door,
     D                  Am7                    G
Come sneaking 'round my skirt tail looking for more,
       D             Am7
If you ain't running from the past,
Am7
You ain't making my heart beat fast,
    F
You ain't chugging your paycheck,
    D
You ain't hugging on my neck.

      Am                                     G
Well, I've been looking for trouble from the git,
     D                    Am7             G
Them cowboys back where I come from won't quit,
D                             Am7
Cutting up tires on an oyster shell,
Am7
Siren screaming and he's running like hell,
F
Momma's on the front porch staring him down,
D
Ladies at the beauty shop coming unwound.

       G         D                    G
If the law don't want you, neither do I,
        D                
I ain't got no time to waste my shine,
     Am7                   C
On a puppet with a clip-on tie,
       G         D                    G
If the law don't want you, neither do I.

  F
I hired that boy to cut my grass,
G
Nailed down a shingle but it couldn't get past,
F
Staring at the bottom of his low-slung pants,
D
Says he's gonna take me to the big buck dance,
       G              D               G
If the law don't want you, neither do I.

Break: A F D
 
  A                Am7     G
I used to run wild down in Mexico,
     D             Am7                G
Hair jacked up and necklines plunging low,
     D
Some snake hip shirt rip giving me lip,
Am7
Rifling my purse and stealing my tips,
        F
There's something 'bout a man can affect that lean,
D
Keeping his hat all yanked down mean.

       G         D                    G
If the law don't want you, neither do I,
                          D
Play born to lose and you light my fuse,
      Am7                     C
I'm a sucker for a bald-faced lie,
       G         D                    G Em
If the law don't want you, neither do I,
       G         D                    F G F G
If the law don't want you, neither do I.
