I can't help with chords, but I think we ought to have the lyrics here:


A LIE IN MY HEART
As sung by Tampa Red on "Tampa Red Vol. 9 1937-1938" and "The Bluebird Recordings, 1936-1938"

I may be wrong to say "I love you"
Or pitch a day in the dark(?),*
But it's better to say "I love you"
Than to live with a lie in my heart.

And though I know you didn't want me,
I played a fool at the start,
But it's better to say "I love you"
Than to live with a lie in my heart.

Though I may pretend I'm gay
And hide away
In a magic house of my own,
Hopin' that you may someday
Return and say:
"I'm sorry I left you alone, dear."

I may be wrong to say "I miss you"
Or worship you from afar,**
But it's better to say "I love you"
Than to live with a lie in my heart.


* Some lyrics websites say this line is "Or put your day in the dark."

** Some say this line is "Or watch your view from afar."
