Am                                                         E
          This is a morbid story about a fella that had to die,
Am                                        E                Am
          He had a beautiful wife but he also had a roving eye.

She planted him by the roadside,
E                      A
She planted him by the roadside,
A                      D
She planted him by the roadside,
              A        E           A
for all the unfaithful husbands to see.

A                        E
Come let me tell you the story,
E                           A
of little Willie the Troubador
A                           D
And just how it happened to pass my friends,
        A           E      A
little Willie won't see no more. 
You know why?

A                      E
She planted him by the roadside,
E                      A
She planted him by the roadside,
A                      D
She planted him by the roadside,
              A        E           A
for all the unfaithful husbands to see.

A                      E
Willie was handsome as he could be,
E                  A
he met a girl in society
A                             D
Thin Willie was cursed with a rovin' eye,
          A            E          A
and never let a pretty chick pass by.

A                          E
So he bought himself a convertible bird,
E                        A
to ride the fine chicks around
A                         D
He found out he was being followed,
            A             E         A
so he could never let the top down.
You know what happened to him?

A                      E
She planted him by the roadside,
E                      A
She planted him by the roadside,
A                      D
She planted him by the roadside,
              A        E           A
for all the unfaithful husbands to see.

A                        E
If he drove a girl to a drive-in,
E                     A
he'd have to go after dark
A                           D
He knew he'd always have to hide,
         A              E      A
so he'd wind up sitting in the park.

A                          E
She caught him down by the water,
E                      A
lovin' the fisherman's daughter
A                                         D
she pulled a little pistol from right out of the air,
              A            E         A
and shot poor Willie right then and there.

A                      E
She planted him by the roadside,
E                      A
She planted him by the roadside,
A                      D
She planted him by the roadside,
              A        E           A
for all the unfaithful husbands to see.
