I tried so hard my dear to show
That you’re my ev’ry dream
Yet you’re afraid each thing I do
Is but some evil scheme
In anger unkind words are said
That makes the teardrops start
Why can’t I free your doubtful mind
And melt your cold, cold heart.

Today I passed you on the street
And my heart fell at your feet
I can’t help it
If I’m still in love with you
Another love was by your side
And he looked so satis-fied
I can’t help it
If I’m still in love with you.

The news is out, all over town
That you’ve been seen, out runnin’ ’round
I know that I should go, but then
I just can’t go, you win a-gain.

If today the sun should set on all my hopes and cares
There is one whose smiling face that god would see
For she’ll walk along beside me up those golden stairs
Oh, they’ll never, never take her love from me.

Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel
That should be ringing now for you and me
At home alone I hang my head in sorrow
Those wedding bells will never ring for me.

Change to key of e:
So take these chains from my heart and set me free
You’ve grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you is gone, but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Change to key of f:
Your cheatin’ heart will make you weep
You’ll cry and cry and try to sleep
But sleep won’t come the whole night through
Your cheatin’ heart will tell on you-ou-ou.
