                [Verse 1]
   G                              C
Your little hoodrat friend makes me sick
    Em                          F   C
But after I get sick I just get sad
          G                  C
'Cause it burns being broke, Hurts to be heartbroken,
    Em                          F   C
And always being both must be a drag
           G               C Em F C
She's been calling me again
           G               C Em F C
She's been calling me again

[Verse 2]
     G                            C
Your little hoodrat friend's been calling me again
      Em                                    F               C
And I can't stand all the things that she sticks into her skin
      G                           C
Like sharpened ballpoint pens and steel guitar strings
      Em                           F   C
She says it hurts, but it's worth it
G                C
Tiny little text etched into her neck
         Em                                F   C
It said "Jesus lived and died for all your sins"
G                                 C
She's got blue black ink and it's scratched into her lower back
Em                                  F                             G
Says, Damn right, I'll rise again.  Yeah, damn right she'll rise again
G   C   Em   F   C
                   Yeah, damn right she'll rise again!
G   C   Em   F   C

[Chorus]
G                                      D                               C
And I've been dusted in the dark up in Penetration Park, and I've been plastered
G                                         D                                      C
I've been shaking hard and searching in a dirty storefront church, and I've been plowed
G                                D
But I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
F                            C
I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
G                            D
I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
F                                          C
What makes you think I'm getting with your little hoodrat friend?

[Verse 3]
G                                      C
Your little hoodrat friend got me high though
             Em                     F   C
When we were 17 and stuck up, up in Osseo
               G                                    C
She said, it's funny how true love gets troubled by still water
    Em                           F     C
And washed up in the Mississippi River
    G                                C
Her claddagh ring was pointed at the people
           Em                        F     C
She said, "St. Theresa came to me in dreams"
           G                         C
She said, "I ain't gonna do anything sexual with you
    Em                          F     C
I'm kinda saving myself for the scene"

[Chorus]
G                                      D                               C
And I've been dusted in the dark up in Penetration Park, and I've been plastered
G                                         D                                      C
I've been shaking hard and searching in a dirty storefront church, and I've been plowed
G                                D
But I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
F                            C
I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
G                            D
I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
F                                          C
What makes you think I'm getting with your little hoodrat friend?

[Spoken Section]
G
And she said city center used to be the center of our scene
G
Now city center's over, no one really goes there
G
And then we used to drink beneath this railroad bridge
G
Some nights the bus wouldn't even stop, there was just too many kids

[Chorus]
      G                             D                         C
I was waiting for my ride and I got jumped from behind, I got punctured
      G                                           D                C
I got stopped by the cops and they found it in my socks, And I got probed
G                                D
But I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
F                            C
I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
G                            D
I ain't never been with your little hoodrat friend
F                                          C
What makes you think I'm getting with your little hoodrat friend?
