The Cheatin’ Kind

Words and music copyright © Leon Chase 2012.

As performed on the album Wild Ways.

Listen

 

I never meant to hurt you, please believe
I never meant to break your heart
or make you want to leave
And I never meant to make you cry
each time you speak my name
but with one single kiss on one drunken night
that’s exactly what I did

Now I can buy you rings and pretty things
and promise to love you through the years
I can tell you, you were always on my mind
But it don’t matter now how much I say or do, dear
In your mind, I’ll always be the cheatin’ kind

You ask how I could do the things I’ve done
You ask me how I sleep at night
knowing well that I done wrong
But the tears you cry each night remind me
just how far I’ve fallen
And the fact I had no reason
only hurts you even more

Now I can buy you rings and pretty things
and promise to love you through the years
I can tell you, you were always on my mind
But it don’t matter now how much I say or do, dear
In your mind, I’ll always be the cheatin’ kind
