Hank Williams – WHY SHOULD I CRY lyrics

(C)Why should I cry, I (G7)never done you wrong
I kept my vows you left me all a(C)lone
You told me you loved me, you (F)told me a lie
(C)Why should I pay, tell me (G7)why should I (C)cry
You knew I worshipped you, right from the start
I gave you my love, never thought that we'd part
You didn't care enough, to even say goodbye
Why should I pay, tell me why should I cry
You know I miss you, now that you're gone
Life can be sad when you're livin' all alone
But darlin' I'll forget you, your memory will die
Why should I pay, tell me why should I cry
