A E I did all of the things that you wanted me to Bm walk up Bm A E I went downtown with my pocket knife, Bm A E Cut your other man, but I spared his life Bm A E Valerie won't you be good to me? Hey Valerie, Baby what's the matter with you? Come on, come Baby, and tell me true Hey now Baby, what did I do? I shot my dog 'cause he growled at you Valerie won't you be good to me? B E Valerie what's the matter with me? A E I never ever done you no wrong B E A I sing the blues nearly all night long. B E Valerie what the matter with me? A E You know I'd do anything that you'd say Bm A E I can't understand why you tell me "Please go 'way" I ain't afraid of the cold, cruel world outside No chicken little running from a falling sky The only thing trouble's me is you. If you leave me what will I do? Valerie won't you be good to me? You got me down on the knees of my shaking feet Can't play the blues 'cause for you I drop the beat Valerie what your complaint? I try to be everything I ain't Valerie won't you be good to me?
