I can't help with the chords but I can help with the lyrics.
I found these lyrics online and then altered them a bit to make them agree with the lyrics in this video at YouTube
READ MY LIPS
Mary Chapin Carpenter
A few more cigarettes now, honey, one more jolt of Joe,
A couple of hours past New York City, a few more turnpike tolls.
One more minute away from you is a minute that lasts too long.
When I get back we're gonna lock the door, sugar, unplug the phone.
We could use a week to get reacquainted, some time to feel it out,
But leave your small talk back at home, babe. This ain't what that's about.
CHORUS: Just read my lips. Yes I think you can.
Just read my lips and you'll understand
Well I can see it in your eyes now, honey, 'cause I've seen it in myself.
You've got a few old scars; that's ancient history, honey; that was someone else.
I could tell you that you're only human, that you're right to be afraid,
But how can you pull back on me now? Don't you make that big mistake.
Well, you can give me up or you can just give in; that's the choice between the two.
You might want no yesterday girl and I wasn't born a fool.
This ain't no game of cat and mouse. It ain't no truth or dare.
I ain't got twenty questions for you, just one thing to declare:
