G D 
Am B C D C

   G                                  D
At last the kids are gone now for the day
    Em              C             G                 D
She reaches for the coffee as the school bus pulls away
  G                               D
Another day to tend the house and plan
    Em               C              G                D
For Friday at the Legion when she's dancing with her man

     G                        D
Sure was a bitter winter, but Friday will be fine
    Em                           D      C
And maybe last year's Easter dress will serve her one more time
      G                                D
She'd pass for twenty-nine but for her eyes
    Am               D              G
But winter lines are telling wicked lies


   Am B C D C                    G                      Am     D
All lies....           All those lines, they're telling wicked lies
Am B C  D   C
Lies....  All lies....
    G
Too many lines there in that face
    A                       C
Too many to erase or to disguise
     D               G         D        Am B C D C
They must be telling lies


     G                                D
Is this the face that won for her the man
      Em                C                G             D
Whose amazed and clumsy fingers put that ring upon her hand
      G                                D
No need to search that mirror for the years
    Em               C              G                 D
The menace in their message shouts across the blur of tears

   G                           D
So this beauty's finish?  Like Rodin's "Belle Heaulmiere"?
    Em                       D          C
The pretty maiden trapped inside the ranch wife's toil and care
      G                                D
Well, after seven kids, that's no surprise
    Am               D              G
But why cannot her mirror tell her lies?


   Am B C D C                    G                      Am     D
All lies....           All those lines, they're telling wicked lies
Am B C  D   C
Lies....  All lies....
    G
Too many lines there in that face
    A                       C
Too many to erase or to disguise
     D               G         D        Am B C D C
They must be telling lies


(soft)
     G                                 D
Then she shakes off the bitter web she wove
    Em               C            G                D
'n turns to set the mirror gently face down by the stove
    G                           D
She gathers up her apron in her hand
Em               C              G               D
Pours a cup of coffee, drips Carnation from the can

(strong)
      G                            D
And thinks ahead to Friday, 'cause Friday will be fine
       Em                        D         C
She'll look up in that weathered face that loves hers line for line
   G                              D
To see that maiden shining in his eyes
    Em               D                G 
And laugh at how the mirror tells her lies


   Am B C D C                    G                  Am     D
All lies....           All those lines, are telling wicked lies
Am B C  D   C
Lies....  All lies....
    G
Too many lines there in that face
    A                       C
Too many to erase or to disguise
     D               
They must be telling 
Am B C D C                    G                 Am      D
lies....           All those lines, are telling wicked lies
Am B C  D   C
Lies....  All lies....
    G
Too many lines there in that face
    A                       C
Too many to erase or to disguise
     D               G         D        Am B C D C
They must be telling lies
