The Real Thing
Recorded by Jean Shepard
Written by Ronnie McDowell

I know you want to set my soul on fire
And you’re dying to warm deepest desires
C Am
But before I do give myself to you
There is something you must understand

I don’t want to be just a pass time fling
Like something you can play with dangling on a string
C Am
And before I do give my all to you
C D7 G
It’s got to be the real thing

C D7
Have it in your heart but keep it in mind
G E7
If it’s with me that you wanna make time
C D7
It’s got to be the real thing this is true
G E7
And honey that don’t mean just an hour or two
C D7 G
You got to guarantee me the real thing

I’ll lay with you and talk with you
But that’s about as close as we’re coming to
C Am
What you have in mind is well and fine
C D7 G
But it’s got to be the real thing

Repeat #3 x2
