D                          A
We are saying goodbye dear forever
                              D
I'm leaving your false love behind
                                     G
Every promise that you made has been broken
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine
D                          A
I wanted someone true and faithful
                             D
For that's the way it had to be
D               D7          G
You wanted your honky tonk love dear
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart to me
A                                  D
Go back to the bar down the street dear
A                             D
And stay with your honky tonk kind
                    D7           G
Go back to the life you've been livin'
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine

-steel break-

D                               A
From a bottle to a ride in the moonlight
                                  D
And the arms of the first man you see
                             G
Another victim added to your list dear
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart to me
D                        A
I'll never pretend to be happy
                         D
Until a true love I will find
                  D7           G
For you lived the lie from the start dear
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine
   A                        D
Go back to the bar down the street dear
    A                         D
And stay with your honky tonk kind
                    D7           G
Go back to the life you've been livin'
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine 

-banjo break-

A                           D
Go back to the bar down the street dear
    A                         D
And stay with your honky tonk kind
               D7               G
Go back to the life you've been livin'
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine
          A                      D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine
           A                     D
You're no longer a sweetheart of mine
