IT WOULD BE A DOGGONE LIE
(Autrey Inman)
AUTREY INMAN (DECCA 9-29936, 1956)

Well, the sun come up this morning
And I jumped out of bed
I was feelin' fine till I remembered
Remembered what my baby said

Last night while we were talkin'
She broke the news to me
Well, she said today she's leavin'
And now she's a-fancy free

I could say that I don't worry
I could say that I won't cry
I could say that I won't miss her
But it would be a doggone lie

Well, did you ever try to stop breathin'
Well, it just can't be done
So I'll have to find me somebody
To take her place while she's gone

When she gets tired of romance
She's gonna wanna come back
And I ain't gonna be foolish
I'm gonna take my baby back

Oh, I could say that I don't worry
I could say that I won't cry
I could say that I won't miss her
But it would be a doggone lie

Well, I could say that I don't worry
I could say that I won't cry
I could say that I won't miss her
But it would be a doggone lie
