Jean Shepard – Let Me Be The Judge lyrics

Just let me be the judge of what you've done and if I find
You guilty I'd erase you from my heart and from my mind

Talk is goin' over town that you my dear have let me down
I don't believe what people say I still love you
I don't believe that you're to blame I don't believe you've brought me shame
I just can't believe that you' have been untrue
They say I should go on alone that you've done somethin' very wrong
That you're not worthy of the love I have for you
But I won't believe a thing I hear until you say it's true
Just let me be the judge...
[ dobro ]
Now you confess the things they say are true and I should go my way
You think I can forgive you for the wrong you've done
You say although you were untrue I still mean everything to you
It only meant to dance with her and have some fun
In the jukebox played our favorite song you knew that you were doing wrong
You closed your eyes and made believe that I was there
And now you think for certain that I'll end our love affair
But let me be the judge...
