Now I Lay Me Down to Cheat Lyrics

Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat - David Allan Coe

On the woman I love so

And if I die between these sheets

I pray to God she'll never know

She's the best thing in this life

Why she worships the ground that he walks on

She waits up for him at night and worries

Until he's safely home

And she always believes his stories about overtime

And in 20 years beside him cheatins never crossed her mind

 

Aw but it crossed his

Early last summer

In a person of a neighbor that she still calls her friend

And with a little push from drinkin one too many one night in the fall he gave in

And now he wishes he could stop himself

But theres no easy way

So he lays down with his lover

And silently he prays

Now I lay me down to cheat

On the woman I love so

And if I die between these sheets

I pray to God she'll never know

In his heart and soul

He knew he was playing a game he could never win

But ya know forbidden fruit is sweet

Why it was sweet enough to make him risk it all again

And now he's givin up on lookin for a way

To fight the feeling

So he prays this simple pray

And hope it makes it past the hotel ceiling

Now I lay me down to cheat

On the woman I love so

And if I die between these sheets

 

I pray to God she'll never know
