Intro: | A | A D | A | E A | (2 times)

A                                D
 I had two jobs, I had dishwater hands
A                        E             A
 And on the weekend in a rock and roll band
A                                 D
 One Friday night, in my hometown bar
   A                              E      A
In walked a girl who looked like a movie star
D                            E          A
 She stared at me and it was turning me on
D                         F#m      Bm
 She said she worked in a beauty salon
A                          D   A
 I heard a voice inside me say, "She ain't pretty, she just looks that way"

| A | A D | A | E A |

A                           D
 We made a date to go for a drink
A                    E          A
 I wore my jeans and she wore a mink
A                                      D
 There was this misconception all over town
     A                  E            A
That she ate lonely guy heart by the pound
         D                     E           A
She said, "Take me home, there won't be no fuss"
D                            F#m            Bm
 I said, "Sure, you got some change for the bus?"
A                                          D   A
 Watching her leave, I heard the bartender say, "She ain't pretty, she just looks that way"

Solo: | D | E A | D | F#m Bm | A | A D | A | E A |

          A
So, uh, I called her up, her father was home
Said, "She's busy, she can't come to the phone"
I held my breath and decided to wait
                      E        A
A guy like me doesn't get many dates
D                      E          A
 I fell in love with a model from hell
D                         F#m         Bm
 It took some time for my hormones to tell
A                                     D    A
 That chasing her has been a grave mistake, she ain't pretty, she just looks that way
D                        E        A
 Her ego wrote cheques incredibly fast
       D            F#m    Bm
But her personality didn't have the cash
A                                  D   A
 I laughed out loud to my total dismay, she ain't pretty, she just looks that way
A
 She ain't pretty, she just looks that way
A                 G
 She ain't pretty
A                 G
 She ain't pretty
F#m       D      C  G
 She ain't pretty
A
 She ain't pretty, she just looks that way
