Words and music by hank williams, sr.

[g] I could shame you til you hide your face
And drag you right down in disgrace
But what good would it [d] do
I know Id still want [g] you.

I could tell the world youre doin wrong
That I was stringin you along
And if it all were [d] true
I know Id still want [g] you.

The [c] world with me might sympathize
[g] when I got thru with all my lies
But Id be just as [d] blue
Cause my heart would still want [g] you-ooo-oo
[d] cry, oh, [g] lord.

I could tell my friends I threw you down
And slander your name all over town
But what good would it do
I know Id still want you.

If I said I'm happy to be free
The only one Id fool is me
Because it isn't true
I know Id still want you.

Whats the use to say that youre no good
When Id crawl back if I could
No matter what you do
I know Id still want you-ooo-oo
Cry, oh, lord.

I could smile and say that I don't care
And then go home and pull my hair
But what good would it do
I know Id still want you.

I could say that someone put me wise
And get revenge by telling lies
But when I got all thru
I know Id still want you.

If the things I said was to break your heart
Id be the first to take your part
Cause if all these lies were true
I know Id still want you-oooo-oo
Cry, oh, lord.
