You Lie  Reba McEntire

You Lie by Reba McEntire Capo: 1st fret
Intro: F#m D E, F#m D E, A (see note)
Note: On the intro, there is a type of suspended chord used after the A,
that I am not sure how to notate, so Iíll just draw it out for ya.
You would strum the A chord in the intro once, then in rapid succession:
A, Chord A, A, Chord A, A (pause), then A, Chord B, A, Chord B, A .
This would be done with the regular timing of a normal A suspended chord,
where you just place then lift your 4th finger quickly, but the 4th finger
is in a different spot. If you listen to the intro in the song, you'll hear
how it goes, and this is a pretty close rendition. Pardon my ignorance on
the names of the two chords :)
Chord A

Chord B

We [A]lie in the dark, I know you're awake
The only sounds, are the sounds this old house [D]makes
Oh how I long, I long to hear your [A]voice
[A]Desperate to talk, yearning to touch
Burning inside, 'cause I want you so much[D]
[D]So I say I need you, and leave you no [E]choice[D] [E]
You [A]li[C#m]e, [D] you donít wanna [E]hurt me
So you [A]l-[C#m]i-e, and buy a little time
And [G]I go along, what [D]else can I do
But [Bm]maybe itís wrong, but you [Esus]know how much I [E]love you,
So you [A]l-[C#m]i-e,[D] [Bm] till you can find a way to say [Esus]goodb[E]ye
(repeat intro lick)
You lie.
[A]How long until, you just cainít go on,
And the urge to break loose, is just too strong[D],
[D]You should let go, thatís what you wanna [E]do,
Oh, but [D]you donít know (you donít know)
If itís the right thing to [E]do,
So you [A]l-[C#m]i-e,[D] you donít wanna hurt [E]me,
So you [A]l-[C#m]i-e, and buy a little time,
And [G]I go along, what [D]else can I do,
But [Bm]maybe itís wrong, but you [Esus]know how much I [E]love you,
So you [A]l-[C#m]i-e,[D] [Bm]till you can find a way to say [Esus]goodb[E]ye
Oh, you [A]l-[C#m]i-e,[D] [Esus] [E]
You l-i-[A]e,[C#m] [D] [Esus] [E]
Oh, you [A]l-[C#m]i-e,[D] [Esus] [E]
Oh, you [A]l-[C#m]i-e [D] [Esus] [E] (fading out to end)
