8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
My gal and I, we had a fight And I'm all by my self,
I guess she thinks, now that she's gone, I'll lay right on the shelf;
I'm gonna show her she's all wrong, No lonesome stuff for mine,
I won't sit home, all alone, She'll soon find that I'm:
Runnin' wild, lost control,
Runnin wild, mighty bold,
Feelin' gay reckless too,
Care free mind all the time, never blue;
Always goin' don't know where,
Always showin', I don't care;
Don't love nobody, it's not worth while;
All alone runnin' wild.
No gal will ever make a fool of me, No, gal! I mean just what I say;
I ain't the simpleton I used to be, Wonder how I got that way.
Once I was full of sentiment, it's true, But now I got a cruel heart;
With all that other foolishness I'm through, Gonna play the villian part.
