The Unforgiven

Will they forgive me for forgiving you
And all the shady things you would do
I'm unforgiven for forgiving you
It's just something I had to do

I got here in an unexpected way
Now that I am, I wanna stay
But everywhere I hear your name
They're pointing fingers holding me to blame

Truth is we were never close
Circumstances led me to this post
Now you're gone, but they still claim
That I should be sharing your shame

Will they forgive me for forgiving you
And all the shady things you would do
I'm unforgiven for forgiving you
It's just something I had to do

I wanted my name and not yours
Wasn't interested in settling scores
Some wanted blood, some just wanted you gone
All I wanted was to just move on

Did what I could to make my mark
Never hit the ball out of the park
In the end what is my legacy
Your failure led to me

Will they forgive me for forgiving you
And all the shady things you would do
I'm unforgiven for forgiving you
It's just something I had to do



It was supposed to be 70's disco, but it may have come out more 80s.

Gerald R. Ford September 8, 1974
