            F                                            C
I didn't find out I was a coward till I ran away.

           F                                          C
Didn't think I was a hypocrite till I tried to pray.

           F                                             C
Didn't realize I was lost till I started lookin'.

            C               C/B      Am7   C/G
I didn't know how much I love    you   

F      G                            C            
............ till I tasted your cookin'.


            F                                     C
I didn't know I was a cheat till I fixed the deck.

           F                                             C
Didn't feel like a petty larcenist till I forged a check.

           F                                                        C
Didn't think I could hardly read till I stated bookin'

            C               C/B      Am7   C/G
I didn't know how much I love     you 

F    G                           C
..........till I tasted your cookin'.

               F                                                
For your garlic flavored steak I'd suffer nightmares.

               C                                                      
For your mashed potatoes, I'd even dig the dirt.

               F                                       
For your roast beef, I'd even get a haircut

            G                                           
And to keep the larder full, I'd even work.


           F                                                   C
Didn't know I was such a good liar till I wrote this song.

       F                                                                  C
But sometimes I like the gas stove more than you.

     F                                                                    C 
                                 

Despite the fact there's no girl quite as good lookin'.

           C               C/B      Am7   C/G    F   G                           C
Didn't know how much I loved   you ..........    till I tasted your cookin'

Didn't know how much I loved   you ..........    till I tasted your cookin'.
