A Good Man Is Hard To Find

Words & Music by Eddie Green
Recorded by Brenda Lee, 1967

  E7          Cdim    E7
A good man is hard to find,

   Bm7-5   A7      Cdim   A7
You always get the other kind.

     A7/6      D9  Am7    D9 Am7  D7
Just when you think    he is your pal,

     G       Am7     D9       Am7       G        Edim    D7
You look for him and find him fooling 'round some other gal

         E7       Cdim    E7
Then you rave, you even crave,

  Bm7-5    A7    Cdim      A7
To see him laying in his grave.

D7          G      D    Am7  G Cdim   E7
So if your man is nice, take my ad - vice --

G      Am7      G       B7          
Hug him in the morning, kiss him every night,

E7              Bm7-5   Cdim       E7
Give him plenty loving, treat him right

        A    A6  Am7 Cdim   D9 Am7  D7 Edim  G
Cause a good man now - a - days is hard to find.
