God May Forgive You (But I Won't)

    G
You say that you're born again
C
Cleansed of your former sins
    G                 D
You want me to say "I forgive and forget"
    G
But you've done too much to me
C
Don't you be touching me,
G                           D            G 
Go back and touch all those women you've met


Chorus:
       C          D             G
'Cause God may forgive you, but I won't
C          D              G
Yes, Jesus loves you, but I don't
     C                                 G
They don't have to live with you, well neither do I
    C                           G 
You say that you're born again, well so am I
C                        D             
God may forgive you, but I won't
      C       D  G 
and I won't even try


Well, the kids had to cry for you
I had to try to do
Things that the Dad should do
Since you've been gone
Well, you really let us down
You may be Heaven 'bound
But you've left one hell of a mess here at home

Chorus

and I won't even try
