I Take the Chance
Both:
I take the chance
To lose my soul, my life, my pride
I take the chance
To be with you

George Jones:
I've tried to live
My life the best I can
I prayed I'd never cheat
To heed my heart's command

George Jones:
But, dear, you know
Both:
To one I've been untrue
I wonder if you think
I'd do the same by you

Both:
I take the chance
Of causing you to doubt my love
I take the chance
To be with you

George Jones:
I know it's wrong
For us to steal a kiss
And when you hold me in
Your arms, I can't resist

George Jones:
I have a home
Both:
And someone tried and true
I know I'd lose it all
If I were seen with you

Both:
I take the chance
To lose my soul, my life, my pride
I take the chance
To be with you
