I've Come Awful Close

Song Author Ann J. Morton Performer: Hank Thompson Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Well never once have I cheated on my [F]baby
[G7]I'm a traveling man I go from coast to [C]coast
Now everywhere from San Diego to New York [F]City
I never [G7]done you wrong but I've come awful [C]close

Well I met a little peach when I was in Columbus [F]Georgia
[G7]Sitting in the booth next to mine in a little [C]cafe
All that I did was just buy her a cup of [F]coffee
I had a [G7]heck of a time but I pulled myself [C]away

I've come awful [F]close nearly [G7]almost

I got right next to it but I couldn't do it
Heaven knows I've come awful [C]close

Well I pulled into an all night stop in Albu[F]querque
[G7]Where a cute little waitress brought me my ham and [C]rye  
She winkled and said I get off at seven [F]thirty
Well I [G7]might have stayed but I told that gal good[C]bye  

So honey don't you worry about your [F]daddy
[G7]Just scramble my eggs and don't you burn my [C]toast
I'm rolling now I should make it home by [F]Friday
Lots of [G7]guys would have done it but I've just come [F]close

I've come awful [F]close nearly [G7]almost

I got right next to it but I couldn't do it
Heaven knows I've come awful [C]close


Well never once have I cheated on my baby
I'm a traveling man I go from coast to coast
Now everywhere from San Diego to New York City
I never done you wrong but I've come awful close

Well I met a little peach when I was in Columbus Georgia
Sitting in the booth next to mine in a little cafe
All that I did was just buy her a cup of coffee
I had a heck of a time but I pulled myself away

I've come awful close nearly almost

I got right next to it but I couldn't do it
Heaven knows I've come awful close

Well I pulled into an all night stop in Albuquerque
Where a cute little waitress brought me my ham and rye
She winkled and said I get off at seven thirty
Well I might have stayed but I told that gal goodbye

So honey don't you worry about your daddy
Just scramble my eggs and don't you burn my toast
I'm rolling now I should make it home by Friday
Lots of guys would have done it but I've just come close

I've come awful close nearly almost

I got right next to it but I couldn't do it
Heaven knows I've come awful close
