song: It’s A Sin To Tell A Lie writer: Billy Mayhew as performed by: John Denver album: Live At The Sydney Opera House submitted by: Kelly Coull
Be sure it’s [G] true when you say, [D+], “I [G] love you.” It’s a sin to [B7] tell a [C] lie. [E7/B]-[Am] [D7] Millions of hearts have been [G] broken, [A7] Just because these [Am] words were [Cm6] spo-[D7]-ken. I love [G] you, yes I do [D+] I [G] love you. If you break my [B7] heart I’ll [C] die. [E7/B]-[Am] So be [C6] sure that it’s true [Cm6] when you [G] say “I love you,” [E7] It’s a [A7] sin to [D7] tell a [G] lie.
[G] Cross my heart and I [D+] hope to die I’ll [G] never, never, never tell another white lie. Took my little girl out on a [B7] date tonight, Next to [C] her Greta [E7/B] Gerty would have [Am] looked alright. Now [D7] I’m between the devil and the deep blue sea, ‘Cause [G] I said “Baby, you look good to me.” I [A7] told her I love her and [Am] oh, how I lied, And [Cm6] now she’s getting set to be my [D7] blushing bride. If she [G] leads me to the [D+] alter, I’m [G] sunk ‘Cause I cannot tell the [B7] preacher I was drunk [C]-[E7/B]-[Am] [C6] Lord have mercy on a [Cm6] no-count sinner, Give me [G] one more chance to let an-[E7]-other guy win her. [A7] Cross my heart and [D7] hope to die, I’ll [G] never, never ,never tell her one more time I’ll [A7] never tell an-[D7]-other white [G] lie.
