Verse 2:
G           
Spivey Leeks was a drip of a man
     C                    
He looked like a potato shoved into jeans
G
He recollects, it wasn't that long ago
               C
That he could walk by, make the young girls scream
G
But he thought he'd just let it all slide, let it all pass
                   C
'Cause he thought love was best on the run
           G                            C
He said, "Now baby, it don't seem that fun"

                  G
I might give you some... sugar
               Am              
I was doing alright on my own

But now I just might take you home...sugar

Well, he worked in the Post Office all night
