Why Can't You

In the style of

Larry Stewart

Lyrics

i wrestled
with the devil
all night
fightin' with
what's wrong
and what's right

i was two months
from home
the whiskey
too strong
brought a weakness
i'd never known

i won't try to make
an excuse
there can't be one
for what i've done
to you

won't you please
let me in
so i can plead
my case again

if the lord
can forgive me
why can't you
if i can still
get to heaven
why can't i get to you

he died for my sins
i'm dyin' here too
if the lord
can forgive me girl
why can't you

it's killin' me to see
how you hurt
you're right
i should've thought
of that first

but in time i will heal
the pain that you feel
by givin' you the love
you deserve

i know this won't
be easy on you
trust is somethin'
i'll have to prove
for the children's
sake
don't let them pay
for my mistake

if the lord
can forgive me
why can't you
if i can still
get to heaven
why can't i get to you

he died for my sins
i'm dyin' here too
if the lord
can forgive me girl
why can't you

this may be
the hardest thing
you'll ever do
before i make it
right with him
let me make it
right with you

if i can still
get to heaven
why can't i get to you
he died for my sins
i'm dyin' here too
if the lord
can forgive me girl
why can't you
