Watch Out For Lucy

Song Author Eric Clapton Lyrics by: Eric Clapton Performer: Eric Clapton Submitted by: Anonymous
[A]    [C#7]    [F#m]    [D]    
[A]    [E7]    [A]    [E7]    
Now [A]my friend Bill was just a [D]working lad
And he [C#]liked to have his [D]fun.
He'd like to [A]find a girl and get [E]comfortable
When his [D]working day was [E7]done.

He would [F#m]spend all his money on a [C#7]Friday night,
[D]Wake up in the morning [A]broke,
But he [F#m]had a run in with little [C#7]Lucy then;
Be[D]lieve me that ain't no [E7]joke.

[A]Watch [C#7]out for [F#m]Lucy, [D]    
[A]Though she [C#7]may look [F#m]frail. [D]    
Said, "Ex[A]cuse me, [C#7]Lucy,    
[F#m]Darling don't you [D]use me;
[A]I don't want to [E7]land in [A]jail."

[A]    [C#7]    [F#m]    [D]    
[A]    [E7]    [A]    [E7]    
She [A]started out working in a [D]cafe,
Picking [C#]money up on the [D]side.
She was [A]free and easy, [E]everybody's friend,
But she [D]couldn't be satis[E7]fied.

So now [F#m]in walks Bill with his [C#7]cash in his hand,
His [D]heart upon his [A]sleeve.
We [F#m]tried to warn him a[C#7]bout her ways,
We [D]never did suc[E7]ceed.

[A]Watch [C#7]out for [F#m]Lucy, [D]    
[A]Though she [C#7]may look [F#m]frail. [D]    
Said, "Ex[A]cuse me, [C#7]Lucy,    
[F#m]Darling don't you [D]use me;
[A]I don't want to [E7]land in [A]jail."

[A]    [C#7]    [F#m]    [D]    
[A]    [E7]    [A]    [E7]    
Well, the [A]trap was sprung for [D]poor old Bill;
You should have [C#]heard little Lucy [D]sing
"I want a [A]Cadillac car, a [E]beautiful home,
And a [D]thousand dollar [E7]ring."

They [F#m]found our hero in the [C#7]gutter
With a [D]diamond ring and a [A]gun.
He'd [F#m]done it for the love of [C#7]Lucy    
And [D]ended up on the [E7]run.   

[A]Watch [C#7]out for [F#m]Lucy, [D]    
[A]Though she [C#7]may look [F#m]frail. [D]    
Said, "Ex[A]cuse me, [C#7]Lucy,    
[F#m]Darling don't you [D]use me;
[A]I don't want to [E7]land in [A]jail."

[A]Watch [C#7]out for [F#m]Lucy, [D]    
[A]Though she [C#7]may look [F#m]frail. [D]    
Said, "Ex[A]cuse me, [C#7]Lucy,    
[F#m]Darling don't you [D]use me;
[A]I don't want to [E7]land in [A]jail."



Now my friend Bill was just a working lad
And he liked to have his fun.
He'd like to find a girl and get comfortable
When his working day was done.

He would spend all his money on a Friday night,
Wake up in the morning broke,
But he had a run in with little Lucy then;
Believe me that ain't no joke.

Watch out for Lucy,
Though she may look frail.
Said, "Excuse me, Lucy,
Darling don't you use me;
I don't want to land in jail."



She started out working in a cafe,
Picking money up on the side.
She was free and easy, everybody's friend,
But she couldn't be satisfied.

So now in walks Bill with his cash in his hand,
His heart upon his sleeve.
We tried to warn him about her ways,
We never did succeed.

Watch out for Lucy,
Though she may look frail.
Said, "Excuse me, Lucy,
Darling don't you use me;
I don't want to land in jail."



Well, the trap was sprung for poor old Bill;
You should have heard little Lucy sing
"I want a Cadillac car, a beautiful home,
And a thousand dollar ring."

They found our hero in the gutter
With a diamond ring and a gun.
He'd done it for the love of Lucy
And ended up on the run.

Watch out for Lucy,
Though she may look frail.
Said, "Excuse me, Lucy,
Darling don't you use me;
I don't want to land in jail."

Watch out for Lucy,
Though she may look frail.
Said, "Excuse me, Lucy,
Darling don't you use me;
I don't want to land in jail."
