                  Break The Rules
         (Rossi/Young/Parfitt/Coghlan/Lancaster) 

         G 
Spent a long long evening in a low down honky-tonk bar

Pulled a low down lady with a long black honky-tonk car
  C
I asked no questions, got no lies,
                          Bb              G
I walked off with her, I didn't want any ties
    Bb                G
And I knew it wasn't right
     D                F   D      C    Bb  G     - D   
But everybody has to sometimes break the rules.

         G           
Took me down on the highway doin' too may miles an hour

By that way she motor-talked we might have made the Eiffel Tower.
      C 
She stopped her motor by her own front door,
                         Bb           G
I knew she'd done it so many times before
    Bb                  G
And I was offered the floor.
    D                 F   D      C    Bb  G    - D
But everybody has to sometimes break the rules.

   G                                              
I woke up next morning feeling kind of up and down
                                             
Cos I did not know if I was in or out of town
        C                                
Then I saw the face from the night before
                     Bb                  G
Purse was empty and lying there on the floor
     Bb                G
But like I told you before
      D                F    D     C    Bb   G
That everybody has to sometimes break the rules

         G                        C                      G
Spent a low down evening sitting high on a honky-tonk stool.
        C                                        G
And I spent my money like a low down honky-tonk fool.
      D               F   D      C    Bb   G  
But everybody has to sometimes break the rules
      D               F   D      C    Bb   G  
But everybody has to sometimes break the rules
      D               Bb5       A5        G  
But everybody has to sometimes break the rules
