You've Been Fooling Me Baby


    D - A - D



I don’t want you, mean momma,

               A                                        D

    there ain’t no use you hanging around,


    for I've  found me another momma,

             A                            D

    and now I am Chicago bound.


   G                                   D        A                           A7          D

You've been fooling me, baby, you've been telling me your lies,

     D                                                  A                                      D

when I thought you were an angel, just sent down from the skies.


+   D - A - D (2x)



Sing those parting blues to me, sweet Nell,

         A                                            D

    when you leave, you leave me sad,


    ‘cause my daddy's gone and left me,

    A                                   D

    I just wouldn't treat him right.        + CHORUS    +   D - A - D (2x)



I wouldn't give him much lovin’,

       A                                D

    wouldn't stay home at night,


    now I hear the train a-comin,

     A                             D

    he has gone out of sight.          + CHORUS
