One Step Ahead Of My Past
Recorded by Hank Locklin   [3/4 time]
written by Don Robertson and Hal Blair

G                  C          G
The love that I've waited and longed for
              C       G
Is here in my arms at last
    C                    G
But she doesn't know all about me
                  D7          G
I'm just one step ahead of my past

                    C                G
Now I'm walking the old straight and narrow
                C         G
But yesterday's coming up fast
      C                          G
Cause you can't keep people from talking
                  D7          G 
I'm just one step ahead of my past

Cause when I played at love
                         G     D7        G   D7
I made my mistakes where every-one could see
    G                        A7
Now wondering if she'll understand
Is always haunting me

         G              C           G  
Will the news break the heart of my darling
                         C         G
And close the door to my future at last
     C                     G
Till the day she knows all about me
             D7          G
I'm one step ahead of my past
