(Orginally released August 1950 as M-G-M #10760)
From Hank Williams: The Singles Collection
Transcribed by: Ron McGough
[D] What's the use to deny we've been [G] living a [D] lie
That we should have admitted be[A]fore
We were [D] just victims of a [G] half-hearted [D] love
So why should we [A] try any[D]more
The vows that we make are [G] only to [D] break
We drift like a wave from the [A] shore
The [D] kisses we steal we [G] know are not [D] real
So why should we [A] try any[D]more
The dreams that we knew can [G] never come [D] true
They're gone to return no [A] more
[D] False love like ours [G] fades with the [D] flowers
So why should we [A] try any[D]more
Our story's so old a[G]gain has been [D] told
On the past let's close the [A] door
And [D] smile don't regret but [G] live and [D] forget
There's no use to [A] try any[D]more
