Lyrics

Sweet Little Deceiver – Glenn Reid

D G C G D G C G
V1 : I saw it coming a long time before
D G C G D G C G
I even warned her what she was heading for.
D G C G D G C G
Maybe she heard me but I guess she didn’t care
D G C G D G C G
So why am I the one who…who has the cross to bear?

A G
Chorus: She tried to tell me that she’d never leave here,
F#m Bm G A D G C
And all I wanted was to fool myself and believe her
C G D G C G
My sweet little deceiver…

V2: I want to hate her but I still need her so.
Here she comes walking with her new fool in tow
She’ll do the same thing to him that she did to me
I want to hate him too but he’s got my sympathy.

Repeat Chorus

A
Middle 8: I’d like to take her and shake her apart
Bm
To pay her back for what she did to my heart.
G
I never realized that she was so cruel
Em A D G C G
She plays the game with her own set of rules, yeah, yeah, yeah


Lead Break on Verse Chords

V3: Someday somebody’s gonna do her like she did me (ha, ha, ha)
She’ll learn her lesson and she’ll know what it’s like to bleed.
You can’t get anything from someone who just won’t give.
You can’t be bon vivant if you don’t know how to live.

Repeat Chorus and out…
