Intro -x2-: A E A

A                   E7                 A
Mama don't make me put on the dress again
        D                              A
I can't stand the way it opens when I spin
D                                       A            Dm
Ribbon bows around my shoulder, and I'm only getting older
A                  E7                 A   E7
Mama don't make me put on the dress again


A                   E7             A
Daddy don't make me fancy dance around
D                                   A
Painted up in that make-up like a clown
D
If I see another stocking, lord
A                          Dm
I swear to God, I'm walking, lord
A                   E7             A
Daddy don't make me fancy dance around


           D                           A
Well, I'm coming home alone for the hundredth time or so
        E7                               A
It gets harder on my hard earned money's dime
                    D               A           Dm
To the bottle in my basket, will it answer if I ask it
Gbm         E7            A     E7
Doing right or am I doing time?


A                   E7            A
Lover don't make me hit the road again
      D                               A
I can barely feel your fingers on my skin
         D
I'm been booking every city
         A               Dm
Looking sad, but looking pretty, looking...
A                  E7                  A   E7
Lover don't make me hit the road the again


A                       E7                  A
Brother, don't make me tell you where I've been
D                                  A
Running around in circles made of sin
           D
I've been drinking like my daddy
            A              Dm
And he ain't ever had his last one, had he?
A                      E7                   A
Brother, don't make me tell you where I've been


             D                        A
Well, I'm coming home alone for the hundredth time or so
          E7                              A
It gets harder on my hard earned money's dime
                     D               A          Dm
To the bottle in my basket, will it answer if I ask it
Gbm         E7            A     E7
Doing right or am I doing time?

Interlude:
D A E7 A
D A Dm Gbm E7 A

E7                               A
Farther from my home, the more I wish it
     D                                 A      E7
The longer I've been gone, the more I miss it
D
Ribbon bows around my shoulder,
      A              Dm
and I swear I'm only getting older
A                    E7              A
Mama don't make me put on the dress again


            D                          A
Well, I'm coming home alone for the hundredth time or so
          E7                              A
It gets harder on my hard earned money's dime
                      D               A          Dm
To the bottle in my basket, will it answer if I ask it
Gbm          E7           A     E7
Doing right or am I doing time?
Gbm          E7           A     E7
Doing right or am I doing time?

    Dm doesn’t sound right to me? Does anyone have another chord that may fit better?
