This song has been covered by a number of bands. This version is kind of a mutation of several of those, however, it probably bears closest resemblance to the Talking Heads.
E7 D A E7 D A I don't know why I love you like I do E7 D A After all the changes you put me through E7 D A You took my money and my cigarettes E7 D A Now I ain't seen hide nor hair of you yet* (also heard - I haven't seen how it hurt you yet and - I haven't seen the worst of it) C G A G I wanna know, won't you tell me, why I'd love to stay... E7 D A Take me to the river, E7 And wash me down D A E7 Take me to the water, D A E7 And put my feet back on the ground I don't know why you treat me so bad Think of all the things that we could have had Love is emotion that I can't forget My sweet sixteen I will never regret C#m A Hold me, squeeze me C#m A Love me, baby you can tease me G Til I can't, til I can't, til I can't, I can't take no more E7 Take me to the river I don't know why I love you like I do After all the changes you put me through Sixteen candles burn on my wall Tell me I'm the biggest fool of them all
