You Were Only Teasing Me
Recorded by Ernest Tubb
Written by T. Texas Tyler and Ernest Tubb

Once I held you in my arms
F D7
And you thrilled me with your charm
G7 C
But I knew you were only teasing me

And you said that you'd be true
F D7
But I knew just what you'd do
You'd break my heart
And then you'd say we're through

Sweetheart you even said
You'd rather be dead
D7 G7
Than for me to be far away
Now it's coming home to you
F D7
And I know that you'll be blue
G7 C
Cause you knew you were only teasing me

Each mistake dear that you've made
F D7
Leaves a debt that must be paid
G7 C
That can't be done with just an IOU

But you must pay with your heart
F D7
Pay in full and not in part
G7 C
You can't know happiness until you do

Repeat #2
