I Couldn't Believe It Was True
By Willie Nelson
Tabbed by: Larry Mofle

Willie uses a hammer-on on the 5th string, 2nd fret while playing an
alternating bass in an E chord throughout the song. At the end of the
verses and chorus he has a riff that I will try to tab out here.I will
also label where this riff occurs by this (riff)

Very fast
Last night I came home
      A             E 
And I knocked on my door
And I called to my love
As I oft' had before
I knocked and I knocked
   A            E
No answer there came
No kisses to greet me
   B7               E
No voice to call my name  (riff)
And I couldn't believe it was true, Oh Lord
    A                                   E
I couldn't believe it was true  (riff)
My eyes filled with tears and I must've aged 10 years
                          B7                    E  
And I couldn't believe it was true  (riff)
The shock was so great
I am quivering yet
And I'll try to forgive
But I cannot forget
My heartbreakin' loss
Is another man's gain
Her happiness always
I hope will remain  (riff)
