My True Confession
Artist: Brook Benton
Songwriters: Singleton & Stevens

Dear Mr. Editor
Won't you please
Print my story
In your magazine

Warn all the lovers
How a cheating heart
Can only end up in misery

I was a lying, cheating fool
Treated her so cruel
Broke her heart and made her cry
Broke every rule and that's my

(True confession)
She can read the story
(Read it in your magazine)
That's my true confession
(True confession) and I'm sorry
(Sorry that I treated her so mean)
(Oh, sorry that I treated her mean)

I would call her up and apologize
If I was half the man I should be
But I'm afraid it's too late for that
Cause I know she wouldn't listen to me

I was a lying, cheating fool
Treated her so cruel
Broke her heart and made her cry
Broke every rule and that's my

(True confession)
She can read the story
(Read it in your magazine)
That's my true confession
(True confession) let her know that I
(Sorry that I treated her so mean)
(Oh, sorry that I treated her mean)

I know her love was true
But I made her cry
Time after time

Until one day
She couldn't take it no more
She said goodbye to me and
Walked straight out the door

So, please Mr. Editor, ask her for me
To take me back and give me a try
And I'll be true, oh, so true
And I'll love her til the day I die
And that's my

(True confession)
She buys your magazine
(Reads it in your magazine)
Print the story, it's mine
(True confession)...
