Five Short Minutes

Song Author Jim Croce Lyrics by: Jim Croce Performer: Jim Croce Submitted by: Hjalti_G
[A]Well she was standing by my dressing room
After the show asking for my autograph and
[A7]asked if she could go back to my [D7]motel room
But the rest is just a tragic [A]tale
Because [E]five short minutes of love
Will cost me [D7]twenty long years in [A]jail

Well like a [A]fool in a hurry I took her to my room
She casted me in plaster while I [A7]sang her a tune
Then I said [D7]ooh ooee sure was a tragic [A]tale
Because [E]five short minutes of lovin’
Done brought me [D7]twenty long years in [A]jail

Well then a [A]judge and a jury sat me in a room
They say that robbin’ the cradle
Is worse than [A7]robbin’ the tomb
Then I said [D7]ooh ooee sure was a tragic [A]tale
(wasn’t worth it, wasn’t worth it)
Because [E]five short minutes of love
Will cost me [D7]twenty long years in [A]jail

When I [A]get out of this prison gonna be forty five
I’ll know that I used to like to do it
But I [A7]won’t remember why
I’ll say [D7]ooh ooee sure was a tragic [A]tale
(wasn’t worth it, wasn’t worth it)
Because [E]five short minutes of love
Will cost me [D7]twenty long years in [A]jail
Because [E]five short minutes of love
Will cost me [D7]twenty long years in [A]jail

Well she was standing by my dressing room
After the show asking for my autograph and
asked if she could go back to my motel room
But the rest is just a tragic tale
Because five short minutes of love
Will cost me twenty long years in jail

Well like a fool in a hurry I took her to my room
She casted me in plaster while I sang her a tune
Then I said ooh ooee sure was a tragic tale
Because five short minutes of lovin’
Done brought me twenty long years in jail

Well then a judge and a jury sat me in a room
They say that robbin’ the cradle
Is worse than robbin’ the tomb
Then I said ooh ooee sure was a tragic tale
(wasn’t worth it, wasn’t worth it)
Because five short minutes of love
Will cost me twenty long years in jail

When I get out of this prison gonna be forty five
I’ll know that I used to like to do it
But I won’t remember why
I’ll say ooh ooee sure was a tragic tale
(wasn’t worth it, wasn’t worth it)
Because five short minutes of love
Will cost me twenty long years in jail
Because five short minutes of love
Will cost me twenty long years in jail
