Root Of All Evil
Recorded by Jean Shepard
Written by Jeri Jones

You've heard that old story ever since time began
G D7
That money is root of all evil
Well let me tell you mine it's much older than time
G D7 G
For the root of all evil is a man

They'll tell you that they love you and will until they die
But you'll find them out with someone else
Before the ink on the licenses is dry
So girls take my advice think it over once or twice
G D7 G
For the root of all evil is a man

Sure there's honky tonk girls but before you condemn
G D7
And look at her with scorn in your eyes
Give her just a friendly smile hear her troubles for a while
G D7 G
For the cause of her trouble was a man
