Gimme Three Steps

	  		      D               D
I was cutting the rug down at a place called the jug
A                       A
With a girl named Linda Lu
D                     D
When in walked a man, with a gun in his hand
        E                     A 
he was looking for you know who. 
          D                         D 
He said "Hey there fellow with the hair coloured yellow, 
G                      E 
    watcha tryin' to proove? 
				  D                        D 
Cuz' this is my woman there and I'm a man who cares 
          A                D 
and this might be all for you" 
(I said "excuse me!") 
 
        D                 D 
I was scared and fearing for my life 
  A                        A 
shaking like a leaf on a tree 
             D               D 
Cuz' he was lean and mean and big and bad, Lord, 
 E                    A 
pointing that gun at me 
         D                       D 
I said "wait a minute mister, I didn't even kiss her, 
G                               E 
    don't want no trouble with you 
		  D                          D 
and I know you don't owe me but I wish you would let me 
 A                   D 
ask one favour from you: 
 
               D                   D 
Say won't you Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister, 
      A                   A 
gimme 3 steps toward the door? 
 D                   D 
Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister 
            A               D 
and you'll never see me no more." 
 
(Guitar solo) 
 
             D                         D 
O well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray 
         A                       A 
and the water fell down to the floor 
         D                   D 
and I'm telling you, son, it ain't no fun, 
           E                    A 
staring straight down a fourty-four. 
          D                      D 
Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou, 
                 G                  E 
and that's the break I was looking for 
               D                   D 
and you could hear me screaming a mile away 
          A                     D 
as I was headed out toward the door. 
 
 D                   D 
Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister, 
      A                   A 
gimme 3 steps toward the door? 
 D                   D 
Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister 
            A               D 
and you'll never see me no more." 
 
( I'm gonna get the hell out of Dodge)
