(Original Key E)

    C        E      
Hey, hey, hey, 
   F          C               G 
Why do you treat me like you do ?
   C         E
Hey, hey, hey, 
   F          C               G 
Why do you treat me like you do ? 
  C                                                C7
There's just as many geese and they're flyin' down South,
 F                                            G
as there are lies just pouring out of your mouth.
      C      E             F                  C    
Hey, hey, hey, why do you treat me like you do ?
         C          E        F       C      - G
You say that you're young, girl, I guess that's your big excuse,
            C       E        F         G
But sometimes I get so low down, I wanna shout out, what's the use ?
         C                 C7
When you've been a lovin' someone else, you don't try to hide,
            F                               G
You take me for a fool then you take me for a ride.
  C     E              F                    C    
Hey, hey, hey, why do you treat me like you do ? 
           C          E      F        C       G
Ah, you seen my face, gal, with the tears all down my mouth,
          C                                 E      F         G
You came up, you held my hand, gal, you don't know what it's all about.
   C                                            C7
I seen you goin' out, there was nothin' I could say,
    F                                G
I hung around your house till the very break of day.
          C                            E               
And you came a-laughing down the bright highway,
    F                           C
now, why do you treat me like you do ?
  C                            E                           
My mornings, they're all empty now,
  F                       C          G
My evenings, they're just the same.
    C                                 E                           
Now, maybe I been thinkin' wrong about you, gal,
 F                                  G
and you ain't really the one to blame.
     C                                       C7
Keep on lovin' someone else, now don't you try to hide,
         F                             G
You take me for a fool, if it keeps you satisfied.
  C                               E                           
'Cause I ain't gonna be the one to ask the reason,
      F                       C   
Why do you treat me like you do ?
