Understand Your Man

C                                         Am
Don’t call my name out your window when you’re leavin’;
F                                 G7
.    I won’t even turn my        head.
C                                          Am
.    Don’t send your kinfolks to         give me no talkin’;
D7                               G7
.     I’ll be gone like I said.

.     You would say the same old thing that you’d been sayin’ all the long.
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut till I’m gone.
C                                             Am
Don’t give me that old familiar cry and cuss and moan;
F              G               C                               Am
.     Under-stand your man. I’m tired of your bad-mouthin’.
F              G              C
.     Under-stand your man.

You can give my other suit to the Salvation Army,
F                                                  G7
.      And ev’rything else I leave be-hind.
C                                     Am
I ain’t talkin’ nothin’ that’ll slow down my trav’lin’,
D7                                     G7
.     While I’m untanglin’ my mind.

.     I ain’t gonna repeat what I said anymore,
While I’m breathin’ air that ain’t been breathed before.
C                             Am
.    I’ll be as gone as a wild goose in winter;
F                             G               C
.    Then you’ll under-stand your man.

.          Am         F             G             C
Medi-tate on it.     Under-stand your man.
.                           Am             F               G              C
You hear me talk-in’, honey?         Under-stand your man.
.                         Am       F              G             C
‘Member what I told ya.       Under-stand your man.
F              G             C
.     Under-stand your man.            Fade out
