For The Children's Sake 
Recorded by Jean Shepard
Written by Harlan Howard

G G7 C
Dear God give me the strength to hide my feelings from our kids
D7 G
I pray they’ll never know how my heart aches
G7 C
Their daddy doesn’t love me and I guess he never did
D7 G
He only stays here for the children’s sake

G7 C
If it was just the two of us I’d take my pride and go
D7 G
But what a world of difference kids can make
G7 C
For they need both a mom and dad we’d break their hearts I know
D7 G
So heaven help us for the children’s sake

G7 C
I love him and I always will he’s sweet and kind to me
D7 G
But Lord it’s almost more than I can take
G7 C
Tonight I’ll meet him at the door he’ll kiss me tenderly
D7 G
And I’ll know it’s only for the children’s sake

Repeat #2
