Am Dm Am Bdim

F5      Am           Dm
Mean mistreater, you make me cry,
    Am              Bdim            F5      Am     Dm Am Bdim
You lay around, and watch me di-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e. 
F5      Am                 Dm
Mean mistreater, can't you see I'm real?
        Am                  Bdim           F5      Am       Dm Am Bdim F5
Are you satisfied, with the way you fe-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-l?

Mid-part (just strum the chords):

G                                    F
I've tried hard to live without you, in so many ways. 
G                                              F
I just can't help myself from thinking of you, for the rest of my days. 
G                             F
Heartache is at my door step, won't leave me alone. 
G                            F
I just can't get used to it, now that I'm on my own.

F5               Am        Dm
I know all about you, your childhood days,
     Am                Bdim            F5        Am      Dm Am Bdim  
Your mom and dad, your pretty fa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ace.
F5      Am          Dm
Mean mistreater, if you need me,
    Am             Bdim          F5        Am       Dm     Am   Bdim  F5 Am
I'm needin' you to set me fre-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e.   Mmmh-oouh.

About the artist behind Mean Mistreater Chords:

Grand Funk Railroad (later known as Grand Funk) is an American rock band. The Grand Funk Railroad lineup was highly popular during the 1970s, having sold over 25 million records and selling out arenas worldwide and having been awarded four RIAA gold albums in 1970, the most for any American Group that year. The current Grand Funk Railroad lineup uses the nickname "The American Band", from their hit song "We're an American Band". A popular take on the band during their heyday was that the critics hated them, but audiences loved them. Contrary to the name, the band is not a real funk band; but rather an attempt to pun the name "Grand Trunk Railroad" as that railroad went through Flint; although some sources cite the band's "The Locomotion" cover song as a funk track.
