      CAN'T STAND TO BE UNHAPPY      Baillie and the Boys
Intro

G
I know it must be partly my fault   Somehow I must have let you down
        D                C               D                      G
But the pure and simple truth is, Honey you've been running 'round.
G
I've always said that being honest is what this thing is all about
     D            C                D                      G
The way I always play this game is one strike and you're out
C
There ain't no point is being sorry There ain't no point is being nice
                                                D
Cause I'm not gonna hang around and let your lightning strike me twice.

CHORUS:

                           G                               A
I just can't stand to be unhappy  I can't abide with being blue
         C                                   D
I don't like to feel like crying and I just hate when I do.
                            G                  A
I just can't stand to be unhappy  I've got no use for misery
     C                                              D
You've made this bed you can lie in it and you can do it without me
                                   G
Cause I just can't stand to be unhappy.



G
Now honey I just can't imagine whatever were you thinking of
     D                 C                       D               G
That you would be so rash and reckless as to gamble with our love.
G
Cause love ain't worth a wooden nickel if  you haven't got the trust.
       D                      C       D                      G
The brightest fire burns to ashes The sweet dreams bite the dust.
        C  
There ain't no point is being sorry  There ain't no point in being nice
                                               D
Cause I ain't gonna hang around and let your lightning strike me twice.

Chorus.   Ad lib ending.
                           G         A
I just can't stand to be unhappy  I can't abide with being blue
         C                                   D
I don't like feeling like crying and I just hate it when I do
                          G                     A
I just can't stand to be unhappy  I can't stand one tear in my eye
    C                                     D
My feet just itch to hit the highway  My hands just twitch to wave

goodbye.
