Hank Williams I'D STILL WANT YOU Lyrics

Last updated:

Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

[G] I could shame you 'til you hide your face
And drag you right down in disgrace
But what good would it [D] do
I know I'd still want [G] you.

I could tell the world you're doin' wrong
That I was stringin' you along
And if it all were [D] true
I know I'd still want [G] you.

The [C] world with me might sympathize
[G] When I got thru with all my lies
But I'd be just as [D] blue
'Cause my heart would still want [G] you-ooo-oo
[D] Cry, oh, [G] lord.

I could tell my friends I threw you down
And slander your name all over town
But what good would it do
I know I'd still want you.

If I said I'm happy to be free
The only one I'd fool is me
Because it isn't true
I know I'd still want you.

What's the use to say that you're no good
When I'd crawl back if I could
No matter what you do
I know I'd still want you-ooo-oo
Cry, oh, lord.

I could smIle and say that I don't care
And then go home and pull my hair
But what good would it do
I know I'd still want you.

I could say that someone put me wise
And get revenge by telling lies
But when I got all thru
I know I'd still want you.

If the things I said was to break your heart
I'd be the first to take your part
'Cause if all these lies were true
I know I'd still want you-oooo-oo
Cry, oh, lord.
