Law Man Lyrics And Chords

From what I could see online the chords to this song were wrong.
 
Lather, on the other hand, was mostly correct online except in a few places in the song, the intro especially.
 
And, btw, that Bm7 for IN TIME doesn't really completely work for the recording but if you listen to JA play this live (Amsterdam 68), they definitely use the Bm7 at the end.
 
Anyway, here's the great Grace Slick classic, Law Man.
 
LAW MAN
(Grace Slick)
 
(Intro)
 
D        C        Em
 
 
D
Law man
 
C                            Em                        D
Well I'm afraid you just walked in here at the wrong time
 
C                            Em                        D                           
my old man's gun has never been fired but there's a first time
 
C-G                                D
& this could be this could be the first time

 
D
Law man
 
    C                    Em   
you know you look to be a lot younger than me
 
     D
and I'd hate to shoot a baby
 
     C                    Em                   
you've got a long way to go before you're old & slow
 
        D
and it could be
 
  C-G                        D
it could be a good time if you change your mind
 
            G                Bm
well I'm tired and sweet from making love
 
            D                C                   
and it's just too late you'll have to wait
 
Am                G                    D
bring your business around here in the morning

    G                    Bm
well I've heard your line & you've heard mine
 
    D                    C                       
& I'm just too tired to take a side
 
Am                G                    D
bring your business around here in the morning
 
Em        F        G        Am
Don't you want to be easy look there
 
Dm                G            Am       
let some of the things you see go on by or
 
Dm-C            G            Am
you can burn them into your brain go on home
 
Em        F        G        Am
Don't you see the children, they're just like you
 
Dm                G            Am
they want everything to be fine but they let it slide
 
Dm-C            G            Amajor
and the laughing lets you know that smiling breaks the rules

D
Law breaker
 
C                            Em                        D
you know it could be me & if you had your way we'd all be down
 
C                            Em                        D
under the face of a clock that's just too old to be wound
 
C-G                                D
& you can see now the old hands won't move around
 
Em             C        G        C                A
one way or the other, fool card brother this could be,
 
D            C            G
this could be, the first time.
