C Dm Em
Carolyn let me tell you what I've heard about a man today
F C Dm
He didn't come home from work and he went away
C F G7 C
Till he came to a city bright in the night time like day
Dm Em
There they say he met up with some women dressed in yellow and scarlet

Their warm lips like a honeycomb dripped with honey
Dm C Dm
Something about the smell of strange perfume
G7 C
Made him feel warm and not alone
Yes Carolyn a man will do that sometimes on his own

C G7 C
And sometimes when he's lonely
And I believe that man might do that sometimes out of spite
C G7 F
But Carolyn a man will do that always
When he's treated bad at home
