It's me again: you're worthless friend or foe

I somehow let that lovely creature down, horsin' around,  horsin' around

Some things we check and double check and lose
D           D7          Gmaj7A7 / A7* x3Dmaj7
I guess I let that little vow get lost, forgettin' the cost, forgettin' the cost

BbA7 / A7*
Quick to forgive and so slow to blame
Cmaj7        A7 / A7*        Dmaj7
The very thought fills me with shame
(but that didn't stop it happenin')

D   A
Horsin' around's a serious business
GCmaj9
The last thing you'd want's somebody to witness
I was the fool who'd always presumed that
I'd wear the shoes and you'd be the doormat
You wonder why my hand's are still shakin'?
In need of a cry?  These shoulders are taken.
Gmaj  A etc.
I deserve to be kicked so badly
You deserve more than I sold you for. . .

4.[same as 3 above]
The moral is, whatever elseyou learn:
You shouldn't let that lovely creature down.
Lord just blind me, don't let her innocent eyes remind me.
Selling it all up the Sewanee
