           Dm                 C
When she turned thirteen she went astray
            G            Dm
with her brothers dealer,so they say 
     Dm              C
she had the baby yesterday, 
   G                  Dm
perhaps it's just a rumour.
      Dm                  C
They kept her prisoner growing up 
 G              Dm
told her Jesus was enough 
        Dm         C
she's really into dirty stuff
   G
perhaps it's just a rumour. 
            Dm
And if you asked her she'd say... 

Chorus:
     Dm                      C 
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
       G          
how to be like myself.
     Dm                      C
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
        G               
these cards I've been dealt. 


-same chord pattern throughout the song-


See that girl she's looking great 
she used to be quite over weight 
she may not be entirely straight
perhaps is just a rumour.
always did as she was told 
apparently she's on the dole
spends it all on alcohol 
perhaps it's just a rumour 

Chorus:
     Dm                      C 
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
       G          
how to be like myself.
     Dm                      C
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
        G               
these cards I've been dealt. 


'Cause she did it, she did it 
her bed is forbidden 
he's fitting she isn't 
she keeps her face hidden
she told 'em good riddance 

her sister got with him, 
she wishes she didn't 
and now they're all singing. 

Chorus -x3-:
     Dm                      C 
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
       G          
how to be like myself.
     Dm                      C
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
        G               
these cards I've been dealt. 


She did it, she did it 
her bed is forbidden 
he's fitting she isn't 
she keeps her face hidden
she told 'em good riddance
her sister got with em, 
she wishes she didn't 
and now they're all singing. 

Chorus:
     Dm                      C 
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
       G          
how to be like myself.
     Dm                      C
I'm just tryin' to work out, 
        G               
these cards I've been dealt. 


She did it, she did it 
her bed is forbidden 
he's fitting she isn't 
she keeps her face hidden
she told 'em good riddance 
her sister got with em, 
she wishes she didn't 
and now they're all singing.
