Root Of All Evil

Song Author Jeri Jones Performer: Jean Shepard Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]You've heard that old story ever [C]since time began
That [G]money is root of all [D7]evil   
Well [G]let me tell you mine it's much [C]older than time
For the [G]root of all [D7]evil is a [G]man  

They'll [C]tell you that they love you and [G]will until they die
But [A7]you'll find them out with someone else
Before the [D7]ink on the licenses is dry
So [G]girls take my advice think it [C]over once or twice
For the [G]root of all [D7]evil is a [G]man  

Sure there's honky tonk girls but [C]before you condemn
And [G]look at her with scorn in your [D7]eyes   
Give [G]her just a friendly smile hear her [C]troubles for a while
For the [G]cause of her [D7]trouble was a [G]man  


You've heard that old story ever since time began
That money is root of all evil
Well let me tell you mine it's much older than time
For the root of all evil is a man

They'll tell you that they love you and will until they die
But you'll find them out with someone else
Before the ink on the licenses is dry
So girls take my advice think it over once or twice
For the root of all evil is a man

Sure there's honky tonk girls but before you condemn
And look at her with scorn in your eyes
Give her just a friendly smile hear her troubles for a while
For the cause of her trouble was a man
