Liar Liar Liar
(Written by Ray Harris ©2012 SOCAN)

I read your story in the paper -
I saw it there in white and black,
How you rode in on a boxcar -
With just the clothes on your back,
Except there ain't no trains in Nashville -
No station and no railroad track.

Skeletons in your closet -
I think you might have one or two,
When they start gettin' claustrophobic -
Ain't no tellin' what they'll do,
Right now they're peeking thru your keyhole -
Pointing their bony fingers at you.

CHORUS: Liar, liar, liar - cross your fingers, hope to die -
Liar, liar, liar - cross your fingers, hope to die -
Someday the truth'll get you -
Like a hot poker in the eye. >>> solo (A/E/A flat/C#m/B7)

I saw you smiling on the TV -
You got arrested when you misbehaved,
Now you call yourself an outlaw -
Well, OK, yippee ki yi ay,
But Gary Stewart's ghost is laughin' -
And Waylon's spinning in his grave.

But you sold a million records -
And you make all the women scream,
But you know 'well as I do -
Things ain't always what they seem,
Why don't you just admit it -
You're playin' for the other team.

CHORUS >>>solo>>>CHORUS x 2

I saw your story in the paper -
I read it there in white and blacků
