Cold Haard Facts Of Life
Porter Wagner

Intro: C-G7-C

I got back in town a day before I'd planned to
    G7                                   C
I smiled and said I'll sure surprise my wife
   F                                        C
I don't think I'll phone, I'll just get on home
                       G7                 C
For I didn't know the cold hard facts of life

I passed a little wine store on the corner
    G7                               C  
I pictured pink champagne by candle light
    F                                             C
I stopped the car right then, got out and hurried in
                    G7                 C
My mind not on the cold hard facts of life

     F                                   C  
A stranger stood there laughing by the counter
    G7                                 C                   
He said I'll have two bottles of your best
      F                                  C
Her husband's out of town and there's a party
He winked as if to say you know the rest

I left the store two steps behind the stranger
      G7                                  C
From there to my house his car stayed in sight
        F                         C    
But It wasn't till he turned into my drive that I learned
                      G7                 C
I was witnessing the cold hard facts of life

    F                                 C
I drove around the block till I was dizzy
      G7                               C
Each time the noise came louder from within
     F                             C
And then I saw our bottle there beside me
I drank a fifth of courage and walked in
Lord you should have seen their frantic faces
        G7                                    C
They screamed and cried please put away that knife
    F                                              C 
I guess I'll go to hell, or I'll rot here in this cell
                        G7                 C
But who taught who the cold hard facts of life

                    G7                 C 
Who taught who the cold hard facts of life
