David Allan Coe - Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat guitar chord

David Allan Coe - Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat

Chorus:

Am D

Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat

G

On the woman I love so

Am D

And if I die between these sheets

G

I pray to God she’ll never know

G Am D

She’s the best thing in his life

G

Why she worships the ground that he walks on

G Am D

She waits up for him at night and worries

G Am

Till he’s safely home

D Am

She always believes his stories about workin’ over time

And in 20 years beside him

D G Am

Cheatin’s never crossed her mind

D G

Ah but it crossed his

Early last summer

In the person of a neighbor

Am D G

She still calls her friend

And with a little push from drinkin’ one too many

Am

One night in the fall, he gave in

D

And now, he wishes he could stop himself

Am

But there’s no easy way

D

So he lays down with his lover

And silently he prays

Chorus:

Ab Db

In his heart and soul

Eb Ab

He knew he was playin’ a game he could never win

Db

But ya know, forbidden fruit is sweet

Eb Ab Db

Why it was sweet enough to make him risk it all again

Eb

And now, he’s given up on lookin’

Db

for a way to fight the feelin’

Eb

So he prays this simple pray

And hopes it makes its makes it past the motel ceilin’

Chorus2:

Db Eb

Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat

Ab

On the woman I love so

Db Eb

And if I die between these sheets

Ab

I pray to God she’ll never know
