Ben In The Pen

	  		
verse 1 

C                F 
They call me Ben here in the pen 
C                             G 
Where ya take the guff and ya suffer 
    C                     F 
But I'll be free when I'm 53 
      G                       C             G                       C 
And I bet I'll be a whole lot tougher, I'll bet I'll be a whole lot tougher 

C                      F 
When I was a lad I was really bad 
   C                  G 
It wasn't smart to be good 
C                 F 
I beat up my dog, choked my frog 
  G                       C 
I acted just as mean as I could 

  C                         F 
I hit all the girls and put gum in her curls 
C                                 G 
Cause I liked to hear 'em cry and plea 
    C                       F 
I'd punch a little boys and steal all their toys 
C                                     C 
Cause I knew they wern't smarter than me

C F Yeh, They call me Ben here in the pen C G Where ya take the guff and ya suffer C F But I'll be free when I'm 53 G C G C And I bet I'll be a whole lot tougher, I'll bet I'll be a whole lot tougher

verse 2 C F When I was 16 I was really mean C G I could scrap at the toss of a coin C F I was leader of a gang, Rough 'Rangitangs G C Ya had to be a good theif to join C F Yeah we had the black jackets and the motorbikes C G And we forced all the girls to... Skip school C F And the cops they'd all tried to sympathize G C An' we told them how our parents were so cruel

C F Yeh, They call me Ben here in the pen C G Where ya take the guff and ya suffer C F But I'll be free when I'm 53 G C G C And I bet I'll be a lot tougher, I'll bet I'll be a lot tougher

verse 3 C F When I turned 21 I had to have a gun C G Cause I planned me a robbery one day C F And the girlfriend said that she'd rather be dead G C Than to hang around with a guy like me C F Well I granted her wish and dumped her in with the fish C G Then I went to meet Frank C F Yeah, that's the same day that I shot and killed me the cop G C He didn't want to let me into the bank
tabchorus
C F Yeh, They call me Ben here in the pen C G Where ya take the guff and ya suffer C F But I'll be free when I'm 53 G C G C And I bet I'll be a whole lot tougher, I hope I'll be a whole lot tougher Ah, what's the use G I guess I'm not a very good bluffer Aah, back to that hammer man.
