I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
      |D       |G             A5      |D5         |D

   I had things planned, but her folks wouldn't let her

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl

Better leave her behind where the kids are alright
The kids are alright

And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind where
