I'd Be Better Off (In a Pine Box) Doug Stone
[G]I said the night you left me
Nothin? [C]worse could ever [G]happen,
But [C]seeing you with [G]someone else
Proved that I was [D]wrong.
And [C]when your eyes met mine, I knew
That [G]you were gone for[C]ever,
Along with all the [G]reasons I [D]had for hanging [G]on
I?d be [C]better off in a pine box
On a slow train back to [G]Georgia,
Or in the grey walls of a [D]prison doing [C]time.
I think I?d rather [D]die and go to [G]hell and face the [C]devil,
Than to [G]lie here with [C]you and him [D]together on my [G]mind.
[G]I always thought that someday, we [C]might get back [G]together.
[C]I just thought you [G]needed time
To spread your wings and [D]fly,
But [C]when I saw the loving way you [G]held onto each [C]other,
It was all that I could [G]do, not to [D]break right down and [G]cry
Repeat Chorus 2x?s
I can't [C]lie here with [G]you and him [D]together on my [G]mind
