D                            F#m 
Arlene, I'm sorry for what I done,
           C                      G             D
I wasn't looking for love 'til I saw your red hair in the sun
  D                                        F#m
What we had could ne'er be love, that was easy to see,
            C                        G                        D
But when I saw you in Red's pouring coffee, something took a-hold of me

             Em                   G                      A
Oh-wo-oo-oh, Arlene, you wouldn't even let me hold your hand
         Em                      G                     D
When I stopped you in the road, you just screamed and ran

  D                                  F#m           C       G                  D

             Em                   G                      A
Oh-wo-oo-oh, Arlene, you wouldn't even let me hold your hand
         Em                      G                     D
When I stopped you in the road, you just screamed and ran

  D                                     F#m
That night, I decided that I was gonna marry you
     C                        G                     D
My knife went through your screen door and I went away with you
 D                                            F#m
You were singing, "Please let me go," all the way down to Miller's Cave
        C                 G                        D   
When I picked a stick up off the ground, you cried, "I ain't ready for my grave!"

     Em              G                         A
But, Arlene, in the dark, your hair's just as red,
          Em                  G              D
And this long, dark cave will always be our wedding bed
     Em              G                         A
But, Arlene, in the dark, your hair's just as red,
          Em                  G              D
And this long, dark cave will always be our wedding bed
