    THAT'S MY STORY   Collin Raye
Bb
I came in as the sun came up
Bb
She glared at me over her coffee cup
             Eb
She said, "Where've you been?" So I thought real hard
              Bb
And said, "I fell asleep in that hammock in the yard"
            F
She said, "You don't know it, boy, but you just blew it"
              Bb
Well I said "that's my story and I'm sticking to it."

CHORUS:
Eb                                    Bb
That's my story                  Oh that's my story
          2.3.) (That's my story)                  (That's my story)
        F
Well I ain't got a witness and I         can't prove it
                        3.)and you know
     Bb
But that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
ENDING:
         F
You know I ain't going to do a thing unless you approve it
       Bb
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.


Bb
I got that deer in the headlights look
Bb
She read my face like a cover of a book
             Eb
and said, "don't expect me to believe all that static
 Bb
Cause just last week I threw that hammock in the attic
    F
My skin got so thin you could see right through it
                 Bb
And I stuttered "that's my story and I'm stic-sticking to it"

go to chorus using the 2.)
Speak the words vamping on Bb  Ab  Eb  Bb

You know the time comes when a wise man knows the best that he can do
Is just look her in the eye and beg for mercy and face the bitter truth

Bb
Honey me and boys played cards all night
Bb
No hanky panky not a woman in sight
   Eb
I know I should have called and baby I-I'm real sorry
Bb
Let's get a cellular phone and then you won't have to worry
     F
You know how much I love ya and darling I'm ready to prove it
Bb
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

go to chorus using the 3.)
