Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by Donny Young
[G]Don’t start counting on me to smile and take you back again
It [C]seems that I’ve forgotten how t[D7]o smile
[G]And don’t count on me to do the things I€[C]™ve done before
Cause I'[D7]m tired of this hurt and I just don’t love you[G] no more
Cause when the lights go on at night
And [C]light up the play ground of sin
You [D7]know it’s wrong but you’re not str[G]ong enough so you g[D7]ive in
[G]I’ve always been your standby but you€[C]™ve never stood by me
So when you find you’ve lost and I[G]€™m needed
Start [C]counting the times you’v[G]e cheated
Ah but [D7]don’t start counting o[G]n me

Who is Johnny Paycheck?
– Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song “Take This Job and Shove It”. He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
