It's A Sin' was the first song to be released from the Actually album. The single was released prior to the album. It was a hit in the UK and several other countries. The song soon became a fan favourite, and was played on all of their tours, sometimes as an encore. The song was originally conceived and written in 1982. Chris played some chords which to Neil sounded hymnal

Bm It's a sin Em A At school they taught me how to be D G So pure in thought and word and deed Em F They didn't quite succeed Bm Em A For every thing I long to do D G No matter when or where or who Em F Has one thing in common too Bm G It's. a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin A Bm G It's a sin Em7 Everything I've ever done F Everything I ever do Em7 Every place I've ever been F Everywhere I'm going to Bm It's a sin Father forgive me Dm I tried not to do it F Turned over
