Couldn't do nothing right - Jerry Jeff Walker
G - D - G - D
The lamp is broken on the mantle.
My mind is blown and I'm turning away.
It's getting more than I can handle.
It's getting more than I can say.
C - D - G - C - D - Em
I couldn't stay if I wanted.
I couldn't stay here if I tried.
C - D - G - Em
You were always disappointed in me.
C - D - G - Em
I Guess I could never do nothing right.
C - D - G
I Guess I could never do nothing right.
G - D - G - D
Well I work hard to make a living,
to make the good life dream come true.
But you wanted more than I was giving.
I guess that's more than I could do.
C - D - G - C - D - Em
I couldn't stay if I wanted.
I couldn't stay here if I tried.
C - D - G - Em
You were always disappointed in me.
C - D - G - Em
I Guess I could never do nothing right.
C - D - G
I Guess I could never do nothing right.
G - D - G - D
You cut my heart like the cards on the table.
Seemed like fun for you to keep playing on.
I let you win as long as I was able
Now your games have done been run.
C - D - G - C - D - Em
I couldn't stay if I wanted.
I couldn't stay here if I tried.
C - D - G - Em
You were always disappointed in me.
C - D - G - Em
I Guess I could never do nothing right in your eyes.
C - D - G
I Guess I could never do nothing right.

Forget about trying to play this one along with the album; Jerry Jeff and the boys
didn't bother to tune up first and it's recorded about a quarter step sharp...
