              I was cuttin the rug down at a place called 'The Jug'

                     A                A

              with a girl named Linda Lou

                   D                      D

              When in walked a man with a gun in his hand

                     E                    A

              he was looking for you know who.

                       D                         D

              He said "Hey there fellow with the hair coloured yellow,

              G                    E

                  watcha tryin' to proove?

                                          D                 D

              Cuz' thatsa' my woman there and I'm a man who cares

                       A                D

              and this might be all for you"    (I said "excuse me!")

             

                    D                  D

              I was scared and fearing for my life

              A                        A

              shaking like a leaf on a tree

                          D                 D

              Cuz' he was lean and mean and big and bad, Lord,

              E                    A

              pointing that gun at me

                      D                       D

              I said "wait a minute mister, I didn't even kiss her,

              G                               E

                  don't want no trouble with you

                         D                           D

              and I know you don't owe me but I wish you would let me

              A                   D

              ask one favour from you:

             

                            D                    D

   (CHORUS)   Say won't you Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister,

                    A                  A

              gimme 3 steps toward the door?

              D                    D

              Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister

                         A               D

              and you'll never see me no more."

              (Solo)

                         D                         D

              O well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray

                      A                      A

              and the water fell down to the floor

                      D                    D

              and I'm telling you, son, it ain't no fun,

                      E                      A

              staring straight down a fourty-four.

                       D                      D

              Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou,

                             G                   E

              and that's the break I was looking for

                            D                   D

              and you could hear me screaming a mile away

                       A                     D

              as I was headed out toward the door.

             

              (CHORUS)
