           HONESTY (WRITE ME A LIST)    Rodney Atkins

INTRO CHORDS  F#  C#  B  F#  C#  B

n.c.
He said just think it over and write me a list
            B                        C#  
So we can figure out what we both deserve
                      F#            C#               D#m 
She hardly could be-lieve it their love had come to this
     B           F#             C# 
Di-viding and deciding his and hers
          G#m7                             D#m    
But she grabbed a paper napkin asked the waitress for a pen
    G#m7                                D#m              C#  
And one by one she wrote down what she wanted most from him

CHORUS:
 B    F#    C#     F#  B                  C#
Hones-ty   sinceri-ty    tenderness and trust
    F#                      C#          D#m
A little less time for the rest of the world
     B       
And more for the two of us
 A#m           B      A#m            B   
Kisses each mornin I love you's at night
  F#          C#     B 
Just like it used to be
    G#m7      F#      C#                    F#  C#  B
The way life was when you were in love with me



n.c.                     F#        C#             D#m
She reached across the table and placed it in his hand
               B                      C#
And said you know this isn't easy for me
                         F#          C#            D#m   
As he thought about the new car the house and the land
       B                F#               C#
And wondered what that bottom line would be
        G#m7                      D#m 
And a thousand other things she'd want him to leave behind
        G#m7                             D#m       C#
But he never dreamed he'd open up that napkin and find

to chorus

        D#m                          A#m
But he fought back the tears As he looked in her eyes and said
B        C#             F#           D#m                     A#m   
I don't know where to start And she said everything on that list in your hand
                A              C#
Is written somewhere in your heart
to chorus, to ending

ENDING:
 B    F#   C#    F#                C#    B  C#
Hones-ty sinceri-ty just like it used to be
    G#m7      F#      C#                    F#  C#  B C#
The way life was when you were in love with me
