John Denver РIt̢??s A Sin To Tell A Lie lyrics

Be sure it's true when you say I love you
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken
I love you yes I do I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure that it's true
When you say I love you
It's a sint to tell a lie

Cross my heart and I hope to Die
I'll never, never, never tell another white lie
Took my litte girl out on a date last night
Next to her Greta Gerty would have looked alright
Now I'm between the devil and the deep blue sea
Cause I said baby you look good to me
I told her I loved her and oh how I lied
Now she's getting set to be my blushing bride
If she leads me to the alter I'm sunk
Cause I can not tell the preacher I was drunk
Lord have mercy on a no-count sinner
Give me one more chance to let another guy win her
Cross my heart and hope to die
I'll never, never, never tell her one more time
I'll never tell another white lie.
