Intro: Em

Em
I cut my bangs with some rusty kitchen scissors 
B7
I screamed his named till the neighbors called the cops
Em 
I numbed the pain at the expense of my liver 
      B7                                        Em
Don't know what I did next all I know I couldn't stop


Em
Word got around to the barflies and the baptist 
B7
My mama's phone started ringing off the hook 
Em
I can hear her now saying she ain't gonna have it 
      B7                                          Em
Don't matter how you feel it Only matters how you look 

Chorus:
      Em
Go and fix your make up girl its just a break up 
       B7
Run and hide your crazy and start acting like a lady 
         Em
'Cause I raised you better gotta keep it together
     B7                                                     Em
Even when you fall apart, well, this ain't my mama's broken heart 


Em
Wish I could be just a little less dramatic
        B7
Like a Kennedy when Camelot went down in flames
Em
Leave it to me to be holding the matches
         B7                                             Em
When the fire trucks show up and there's nobody else to blame


Em
Can't get revenge and keep a spotless reputation
B7
Sometimes revenge is a choice you got a make
Em
My mama came from a softer generation
         B7                                                    Em
When you get a grip and bite your lip just to save her little face

Chorus:
      Em
Go and fix your make up girl its just a break up 
       B7
Run and hide your crazy and start acting like a lady 
         Em
'Cause I raised you better gotta keep it together
     B7                                                     Em
Even when you fall apart, well, this ain't my mama's broken heart 


Em
Powder your nose, paint your toes, line your lips and keep them closed 

Cross your legs, dot your eyes, and never let 'em see you cry

Chorus:
      Em
Go and fix your make up girl its just a break up 
       B7
Run and hide your crazy and start acting like a lady 
         Em
'Cause I raised you better gotta keep it together
     B7                                                     Em
Even when you fall apart, well, this ain't my mama's broken heart

    Up not to the left but yes it makes way easier

  2. emmajjjaneee

    Playing B7 the alternate way of just moving the Em hand position over to the left one makes the chord changes much easier.

  3. -2 is much easier
