[Chorus]
 
  E                   A                    E
Before you accuse me,   take a look at yourself
  A                                      E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
            B7
You say I´m spending my money on other women
A                                   E     B7
  You takin´ money from from someone else.

You say I´m spending my money on other women
A                                    E     B7
  You takin´ money from from someone else.
