I would not black woman, tell the reason why (Why?)

  D*                    D*
I went to my window, my window was propped
  D*                  D*
I went to my door, my door was locked
  D*                    D*
I stepped right back, I shook my head
  D*                     D*
A big black nigger in my folding bed
  D*                         D*
I shot through the window, I broke the glass
