WHY DO YOU PUNISH ME (FOR LOVING YOU)
Recorded by: Johnny Cash
Written by: Erwin King

[nc] Why Do You [1] Punish Me - for [4] loving [1] You
You're counting [5] my mistakes - how about [1] Yours
[nc] Why do you [1] sentence me - to [4] nights of [1] Tears
Convicting [5] all these Dreams
I've dreamed for all these [1] Years

My [4] heart cries out behind these prison [1] Bars
It pleads to [5] you for your true [2-7] love to set it [5] Free
[nc] Why Do You [1] Punish Me - is [4] love a [1] Crime
If so, I'll [5-7] spend a lifetime loving, serving [1] Time

Repeat last verse.
