C                F                C                     G   
I Bet you never thought, that it would, turn out like this. 
 Am                 F        C             G 
___Mama's little girl, and daddy's little princess.
C                          F         Am                  
But somewhere in your fairy tale, everything went wrong.

Now the sun don't shine the words don't rhyme, 
                       Bb
You're out of time.

C                             Am7           F          
You've been beaten down, kicked around, on the ground, 
               G#
but you took it like a woman,
C            Am7      F            
Victimized, Terrorized, Paralyzed, 
        G#                    
But you took it like a woman, 
  C                Am7
Pushed too far, pulled too 
       F              
Hard, deeply scarred,

I know you must have felt the pain, But you took it like a woman.

But he was, really Mr. Hyde, ___You gave him your most precious 
      C                        G   
Gift. You were his bleeding bride. 
  Am                F                C                             G
He tied you up, pulled you hair. He slapped your innocent face.
G#                                                                        Bb
Yeah you were black and blue, He laughed at you, so what d' ya do.

               G#
but you took it like a woman,
C            Am7      F              
Victimized, Terrorized, Paralyzed, 
        G#                  
But you took it like a woman, 
  C                Am7
Pushed too far, pulled too 
       F              
Hard, deeply scarred,

I know you must have felt the pain, But you took it like a woman.
