Am E7 Am7 G/B C Am7 Em7 Cdim I kind of believed you when you said your nights were lone - ly G D9 G G/F# A Until the day that I came by; C Bm7 C C/B D9 Cdim But when you whispered that I was your one and on - ly, C Am7 D7 That was a big fat lie. Am E7 Am7 G/B C Am7 Em7 Cdim I should have been wiser than I was, and seen right through you, G D9 G G/F# A But the moon got in my eye; C Bm7 C C/B D9 Cdim That stuff about I never lived until I knew you, C Cdim G That was a big fat lie. D7/9 Em B7 Cdim Em B7 You must have started to fib when you were wearing a bib Cdim G Em7 Am7 Edim G And such a hab - it's hard to break; E7 A E Fdim A E A little lie is okay, but when you lie night and day, E7 Am Am7 D7 That's more than even I can take. Am E7 Am7 G/B C Am7 Em7 Cdim You told me we oughta marry, and I let you sway me, G D9 G G/F# A Kissed my happy days good - bye; C Bm7 C C/B D9 Cdim And when you told that man you'd honor and o - bey me, C Am Cdim D D7 G That, baby, was a big fat lie. Spoken: Lets face it you're no George Washington C C/B Am7 Am7/G Bm7 Bm7-5 E An over exaggeration of a super pre - var - i - ca - tion -- Edim Am7 D7 G Just a big fat lie.
