"Poison Lies" lyrics - THE STANLEY BROTHERS

"Poison Lies"

Oh leave me or say that you want me
And the stories that they told all lie down
For somehow I can't make my heart believe them
They're only poison lies going 'round

It tough now that you're livin' reckless
Goin' places dear and doin' things that's wrong
Runnin' 'round with the crowd you once hated
Just to spite one that's loved you so long

Yeah at times we've tired of each other
Our love didn't seem to be the same
Then you thought I had gone found another
So you left me and I took the blame
