Verse 1: (no bass)
I know you wanna leave me
F        C
 But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg, plead for your sympathy
I don't mind, 'cause you mean that much to me

Chorus: (bass in)
                   C  F      C
Ain't too proud to beg sweet darlin'
F              C            F         C
Please don't leave me girl, don't you go
Ain't too proud to plead baby baby
Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

Verse 2:
Now I've heard a cryin' man is half a man
With no sense of pride
But if I have to cry to keep you, I don't mind weepin'
If it will keep you by my side


Verse 3:
If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day
Just to keep you from walkin' away
Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand
'Cause I wanna keep you any way I can

Chorus (G7 chord last measure)

C F (7x?) G7

Verse 4:
Now I've got a love so deep in the pit of my heart
And each day it grows more and more
I'm not ashamed to come and plead to you baby
If pleadin' keeps you from walkin' out that door

Chorus (repeat ad lib)
