Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat

	  		
                      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 

tabchorus
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
tab
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'
tabchorus
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
