(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS:

D Fmaj7 Cm7
IF I ASKED ......HAVE YOU BEEN WITH HER?
IF I SAID....HAVE YOU COMMITED ANOTHER SIN?
IF I ASKED.......WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

G A
ARE YOU GONNA' TELL ME A BOLDFACED LIE ?
WILL YOU SPUTTER, STUDDER AND START TO CRY?
ARE YOU GONNA' SAY IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN
WILL YOU ASK ME FOR ONE MORE TRY

Fmaj7 C Cm7
IF I ASKED YOU
IF I ASKED YOU

G C Fmaj7
IF I ASKED YOU.........


VERSE: 1

I'M LOOKING FOR THE PAYCHEQUE FOR MONEY
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO MAKE

'SUPPOSE YOU SPENT IT IN THE BAR ...LIKE HAVING BOTH
THE ICING AND THE CAKE

IT'S ME WHO LOVES YOU WHEN YOU'RE FEELING DOWN...BUT
SOMEDAY SOON, I JUST WON'T BE AROUND

DON'T CARE RIGHT NOW IF YOU LIVE OR DIE...I'D BE
JUST AS HAPPY TO SEE YOU IN THE GROUND


VERSE 2:

I KEEP SMELLING FOR THE SCENT OF
HER ALL OF YOU.....
YOU TOLD ME LAST TIME IN YOUR USUAL STATE THAT IT WAS
ALL OVER AND THAT YOU'D NEVER BE LATE..

BUT YOUR WORDS ARE LIKE ICE.....COLD AND HARD
TO THE VERY CORE

SHE'LL MELT YOU WITH HER GIRLY ENTICE......GOD KNOWS
SHE'S NO BETTER THAN A WHORE.....


VERSE : 3

TIRED OF LOVING YOU WHEN YOU'RE DOWN......OBVIOUSLY,
THERE'S LOTS OF YOU TO GO AROUND...

HARD TO TEACH AN OLD DOG ANY NEW TRICKS....YOU'RE
WAY BEYOND ANY QUICK FIX

THAT SOMEDAY SOON HAS ALREADY COME .... I GOT THE
KIDS PACKED IN OUR OLD RUSTY TRUCK......

WHEN YOU GET HERE IN YOUR USUAL STATE....DON'T BOTHER LOOKING
.....WE WON'T BE FOUND
