DON'T LET ME CROSS OVER
Recorded by Carl and Pearl Butler
Words and music by Penny Jay
INTRO: [C] Don't let me cross [G] over [D] love's cheating [G] line.
[G] I'm tempted my darling, to steal you a-[C] way
Don't let me cross [G] over, stay out of my [D] way
You know that I [G] love you, and I'm not the stealin' [C] kind
But I'm faced with [G] heartaches, at [D] love's cheating [G] line.
Don't let me cross over, love's cheating [C] line
You belong to a-[G] nother and could never be [D] mine
I know one step [G] closer, would be heaven di-[C] vine
Don't let me cross [G] over, [D] love's cheatin' [G] line.
I tried to forget you, but what else can I do
When your eyes keep saying, that you love me, too
I know if I lose you, not a dream will I have left
I don't want to cheat, dear, but I can't help myself.
