Cheatin' on You (in My Dreams)

1. She called me late one evening
and said “I miss you dear”
You were right beside me, how I
prayed you wouldn’t hear

She sounded awful lonely
And maybe it’s a sin
But I spent the night with her and I just
might do it again

2. I don’t recall the details
It went by in a blur
I only know I love you so,
So why was I with her?

She doesn’t mean a thing to me
I swear she never will
And when I woke I wondered
(half-spoken) Who the hell is Jill?
ch) I’ve been Cheatin’ on You in My Dreams
A loophole in our wedding vow, it seems
(You know) I’m faithful as the day is long
But when the day is through
I’ll be Cheatin’ on You in My Dreams
3. I meet the nicest ladies
when I turn out the lights
They never say an unkind word
We never get in fights

But I feel so bad about it
right here in our own bed, while you’re
sound asleep right next to me
… with Bobby, Luke, and Fred
ch) Hey, You’re cheatin’ on me in your dreams
(spoken)
4. I made a sacred promise
and I’ve kept that vow to you
I wouldn’t dream of someone else
Except I guess I do

You’re my one true love and that’s a
promise I will keep
to foresake all other women
except when I’m asleep
ch) Then I’ll be Cheatin’ on You in My Dreams
A loophole in our wedding vow, it seems
(slow) I’m faithful as the day is long
(slow) but when the day is through
I’ll be Cheatin’ on You in My Dreams
Cheatin’ on You in My Dreams
