Red-Headed Woman

Words & Music:

Bruce Springsteen

 

E    A   E   B7   E

 

          E

Well, brunettes are fine man & blondes are fun;

                               E7

But when it comes to getting a dirty job done.

 

CHORUS:

            A                   E

I'll take a red-headed woman, a red-headed woman.

           B7                                  E

It takes a red-headed woman to get a dirty job done.

 

Well, listen up, stud, your life's been wasted,

'Til you've got down on your knees and tasted.

[alt:  Until you’ve gotten your turkey basted by...]

 

CHORUS:

 

BRIDGE:

A

Tight skirt, strawberry hair.

E

Tell me what you've got, baby, waiting under there.

A

Big green eyes that look like, son.

         E                     B7            E

They can see every cheap thing that you ever done.

 

Well, I don't know how many girls you dated, man.

But you ain't lived 'til you've had your tires rotated.

 

CHORUS:
