Hank Williams – I'm Sorry For You, My Friend lyrics

Im sorry for you, my friend
Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Written by hank williams, sr.

[e] youve known so long that you were wrong
But still you had your [b7] way
You told her lies and alibis
And hurt her more each [e] day
But now your conscience bothers you
Youve reached your [e7] journeys [a] end
Youre [b7] asking me for sympathy
Im sorry for you, my [e] friend.

You laughed inside each time she cried
You tried to make her blue
She tagged along through right and wrong
Because she worshipped you
You know that youre the one to blame
Theres no use to pretend
Todays the day you start to pay
Im sorry for you, my friend.

Today as she walked arm in arm
At someone elses side
It made you stop and realize
That time has turned the tide
You should have known youd be alone
cause cheaters never win
You tried and lost, now pay the cost
Im sorry for you, my friend.
