I Could Never Be Ashamed Of-crd Hank Williams
Ever[C]ybody says you let me d[G]own
That I should be ashamed to take you '[C]round
Makes no difference what you used to [F]do;
Darling, I[G] could never be ashamed of [C]you.
Maybe [F]you were reckless yes[C]terday
but to[D]gether, we can find a brig[G]hter way.
In my [C]heart, I know that you'll come thr[G]ough
Darling, I could never be ashame[C]d of you
All the happiness I've ever known
came the day you said you'd be my own
and it matters not what we go through
Darlin I could never be ashamed of you
Maybe you've been cheated in the past,
and perhaps those memories will always last
even though you proved to be untrue
darlin I could never be ashamed of you.
- This song is in my head lately thanks to the George Jones version from
the early '60s, out on a couple of compilations such as "Sings the Songs of
his Country Cousins".
