Willie Nelson Lyrics
"The Most Unoriginal Sin" by John Hiatt (as performed by Willie Nelson on "Across the Borderline" CD). D A What there was left of us D Was all covered in dust and thick skin A A half eaten apple Or the whole Sistine Chapel D Painted on the head of a pin G A life long love's worth Gone up in a smurk D And you didn't even see her waltz in G Now this love is a ghost Having played host D To the most unoriginal sin A At the wedding we smiled D While some devil played wild violin A Soon after the chapel She offered me that apple D One bite and I was gone with the wind G And you needed no proof Cause the whole naked truth D Was wearing only an infidel's grin A And a proud schoolboy's boast Of having left his post D For the most unoriginal sin INSTRUMENTAL D/G/D/A/D x2 A Now the jukebox is humming D All the venial shortcomings of men A Lord I found me this drink That can finally sink D All the skills that I've been wallowing in G Buddy once you get started Once true love's departed D You do it over and over again A So tonight I will toast Just whoever comes close D To the most unoriginal sin.
