Verse:    chords:  A  D A

I got this good looking woman back home,
Let me tell ya,
She cooks good and she looks good,
And she just can't do no wrong.
She cooks my combread in the morning,
She's my dinner and my midnight snack,
She sits up and she begs,
And she even rolls over on her back.

Bridge:

Em				 C
Please don't tell me that's the way that it goes
      Bb                  A
Cause I tried hard and I know
Em			C
I ain't been playin' in your back yard,
      Bb		      A
Cause I got my baby and she loves me so.

intro riff again

Verse:
She don't treat me mean and she
loves my machine, yeah.
I dig her cause she's funky and she
sure keeps it clean, yeah.
I'm a loafer she's my chauffeur
and she sure likes to drive me, ah ha.
I lay my life on the line and she steps
up right beside me, yeah.

Bridge

I don't have to sing the blues no more
A girl like mine is hard to find for sure
She lays it on me each and every night
She's my pleasure and world's delight

About the artist behind I Dont Have To Sing The Blues:

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.
