"Cold Cheater's Heart" as written by and Mike Reilly....
It's an old familiar story of a boy and a girl

And a love that went wrong from the start

How Bobby he loved Mary and she thought she loved him

But she found she had a cold cheater's heart



And that life out on the farm ain't what she had in mind

When she promised to honor and obey

So she took to runnin' round all over town

Ain't it funny how life turns out that way



The years have tumbled by Bobby turned an ol' blind eye

To the things he hoped just weren't true

And then came that fateful day when he had been away

Oh they say he came home just too soon



He found them lyin' there oh it was more than he could bear

He found a gun she cried don't be rash

But two shots filled the air he stood right there and stared

The deed was done it was over in a flash



That old judge looked down and sighed he said Bobby you'll have to die

The law is clear and it must take its toll

Think on the deed you've done your race on earth is run

And may God have mercy on your soul



On a cold November morn in a prison so forlorn

The warden prayed as did the parson too

And the crowd gathered there they heard him loud and clear

His final words were Mary I love you



It's an old familiar story of a boy and a girl

And a love that went wrong from the start

How Bobby he loved Mary and she thought she loved him

But she found she had a cold cheater's heart
