I Took Her For A Fool
recorded by Cal Smith
written by
Randall J. Colemus
G D7
I'm setting in this honky tonk down to my last dime
I'll bet you've heard this tale of woe at least a million times
I'm the guy that used to own that big house across the tracks
G D7 G
But the only thing that I own now are the cloths upon my back

A different girl most every night I thought this was the life
A7 D7
I tried to please them all but that just didn't please my wife
I kicked myself a million times for treating her so bad
G D7 G
I took her for a fool so she took me for all I had

I used to have a big garage two Cadillac's inside
A pretty wife who loved just me but I wasn't satisfied
The house the wife the car belong now to another man
G D7 G
Cause she caught me with another girl and that's when it hit the fan

Repeat # 2
