The title track. A song about losing your girl to a better man, a true classic country theme.


Standing in the Shadows
(R. Cain)

(A) Here I stand
(C) A broken man
(D) I should have seen it coming long ago

(A) Staying out
(C) And running’ round
(D) I guess I’ve known it was time to go

(A) Now I can see
(C) You’re love for me
(D) Was nothing but a sympathetic show

(A) He was there
(C) So straight and fair
(D) Just waiting in the shadows
(E) And…

(E) I see
(D)That he’s a better man than (G) me
(E) I know
(D) That you’ve got places (G) to go
(E) And I find
(D) That you’ve wasted all this (G) time,
(C) Trying to make things (G) right,
(C) Trying not to (G) fight
(C) I hate to think of the man that I’ve (D) become

(A) I never took
(C) The time to I say
(D) I hope you see some brighter days

(A) But I believe
(C) You’ll find relief
(D) From the pain that you endured

(A) What could have been
(C) Had I been strong
(D) Is a love that never died.

Here I am
A broken man
Now standing in the shadows (E)
