[G]    [C/G]    [G]    [C/G]    [G]    
[G]Go out yonder, [C/G]    [G]peace in the valley [C/G]    [G]    
Come downtown, [C/G]    [G]have to rumble in the alley
[D]Oh, you don't know the [Em7]shape I'm [G]in  

[G]    [C/G]    [G]    [C5]    [C#5]    [D5]    
[G]Has anybody [C/G]    [G]seen my lady [C/G]    [G]    
This living alone [C/G]    [G]will drive me crazy
[D]Oh, you don't know the [Em7]shape I'm [G]in  

[C] I'm gonna go [Dm]down by the [Em]wa   [Dm/E]ter     
[C]But I ain't gonna j[Dm]ump in, no, no [Em]    [Dm/E]    
[C] I'll just be [Dm]looking for my [Em]mak   [Dm/E]er     
[F] And I hear that that's[D7] where she's been? Oh!

[G]Out of nine lives, [C/G]    [G]I spent seven [C/G]    [G]    
Now, how in the world [C/G]    [G]do you get to Heaven
[D]Oh, you don't know the [Em7]shape I'm [G]in

[G]    [D]    [Em7]    [G]    
[C]I just spent [Dm]60 days in the [Em]jail   [Dm/E]house     
[C]For the crime of [Dm]having no [Em]dough, no [Dm/E]no     
[C]Now here I am [Dm]back out on the [Em]street [Dm/E]    
[F]For the crime of having [D7]nowhere to go

[G]Save your neck [C/G]    [G]or save your brother [C/G]    [G]    
[G]Looks like it's [C/G]    [G]one or the other
[D]Oh, you don't know the [Em7]shape I'm [G]in  

[G]    [C/G]    [G]    [C5]    [C#5]    [D5]    
[G]Now two young kids [C/G]    [G]might start a ruckus [C/G]    [G]    
[G]You know they feel [C/G]    [G]you trying to shuck us

Go out yonder, peace in the valley
Come downtown, have to rumble in the alley
Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in


Has anybody seen my lady
This living alone will drive me crazy
Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in

I'm gonna go down by the water
But I ain't gonna jump in, no, no
I'll just be looking for my maker
And I hear that that's where she's been? Oh!

Out of nine lives, I spent seven
Now, how in the world do you get to Heaven
Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in





I just spent 60 days in the jailhouse
For the crime of having no dough, no no
Now here I am back out on the street
For the crime of having nowhere to go

Save your neck or save your brother
Looks like it's one or the other
Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in


Now two young kids might start a ruckus
You know they feel you trying to shuck us
Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in
