I've Come Awful Close
Recorded by Hank Thompson
Written by Ann J. Morton

Well never once have I cheated on my baby
G7 C
I'm a traveling man I go from coast to coast
Now everywhere from San Diego to New York City
G7 C
I never done you wrong but I've come awful close

Well I met a little peach when I was in Columbus Georgia
G7 C
Sitting in the booth next to mine in a little cafe
All that I did was just buy her a cup of coffee
G7 C
I had a heck of a time but I pulled myself away

F G7
I've come awful close nearly almost

I got right next to it but I couldn't do it
Heaven knows I've come awful close

Well I pulled into an all night stop in Albuquerque
G7 C
Where a cute little waitress brought me my ham and rye
She winkled and said I get off at seven thirty
G7 C
Well I might have stayed but I told that gal goodbye

So honey don't you worry about your daddy
G7 C
Just scramble my eggs and don't you burn my toast
I'm rolling now I should make it home by Friday
G7 F
Lots of guys would have done it but I've just come close

Repeat #3
