    THE COLD HARD TRUTH    George Jones
n.c.                 E                     A
You don't know who I am  I know all about you
A                          B7                                    E A E
I've come to talk to you tonight About the things I've seen you do
E                                                                      A
I've come to set the record straight  I've come to shine the light on you
A                  B7                       E
Let me introduce myself, I'm the cold hard truth
n.c.                     E                                A
There's a woman we both know  I think you know the one I mean
A                       B7                                     E    A E 
She gave her heart and soul to you  You gave her only broken dreams
E                                                            A
You say you're not the one to blame  For all the heartache she's been through
A                    B7                                  E
I say you're nothing but a liar  And I'm the cold hard truth
E7                             A                             E
All your life that's how it's been  Looking out for number one
E                     B                            E   A E
Taking more than you give  Movin' on when you're done
E                           A                        E
With her you could have it all  A family enough to last
E                       B7                                 E   A E, lead(B E F)
If you had any sense at all  You'd go and beg her to come back      (key change)

F                                                          Bb   F
You think that you're a real man But you're nothing but a fool
Bb                         C7                              F   Bb F                         
The way you run away from love The way you try to play it cool
n.c.                         F                           Bb
I'm gonna say this just one time  Time is running out on you
Bb                        C7                        F
You best remember me my friend  I'm the cold hard truth
F                         C                           F  
You best remember my my friend   I am the cold hard truth
