  E                  A                   E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
  A                                      E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
            B
You say I'm spending my money on other women,
A                                 E           B
 you're taking money from someone else

  E                A                            E
I called your mama, 'bout three or four nights ago
  E                A                            E
I called your mama, 'bout three or four nights ago
           B
Well, your mama said, "Son,
A                          E           B
 don't call my daughter no more."

  E                  A                   E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
  A                                      E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
            B
You say I'm spending my money on other women,
A                                 E           B
 you're taking money from someone else

     E                 A                     E
Come on back home baby, try my love one more time
     A                                       E
Come on back home baby, try my love one more time
            B
You know if things don't go to suit you,
A                     E           B
 I think I'll lose my mind

  E                  A                   E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
  A                                      E
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
            B
You say I'm spending my money on other women,
A                                 E           B
