How To Play

INTRO
Am Em
 
VERSE 1
        Am          Em
She was sixteen and six feet tall
      Dm                       C                Am
In a crowd of teenagers coming out of the zoo
                         Em
She stumbled started to slip and fall
        Dm                             C           Am
Teeter-tottered on the top of patent leather shoes
               Em
I happened to catch her and said
        Dm                  C                       Am     Em Am
"Maybe these ruby shoes are a little cumbersome for you"
Em         Am  Em
Maybe for you, now
 
[Riff Break]
Am
 
VERSE 2
                      Em
But not as shaky as I must have seemed
         Dm                             C             Am
Talking junk through her giggle, little teenage dream
                          Em
And on the phone I could not compete
         Dm                       C           Am
My dumb-luck fake competence was getting weak
                        Em
For a sec' I thought I sounded sweet
             Dm              C
But sure enough in a gruff, faint voice
              Am      Am Em
I heard myself speak
 
 
CHORUS
D              A
I could stay a while
    C                    G
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
D                A
And I can tell a joke
 C                         G
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
D                   A
And we could share a kiss
    C                      G
But I feel like I can't go through with this
D                    A
And I bet we could build a home
          C                    G
But I know the right thing for me to do
                 Am    Em Am Em
Is to leave you alone
           Am     Em
Leave you alone, now
 
BREAK
Am Em x 8
Am
 
 
VERSE 3
Am               Em
I'm beginning to like you
        D                         C
So you probably won't get what I'm going to do
Am                Em
I'm walking away from you
    D                        C
It probably don't make much sense to you
Am                Em
But I'm trying to save you
D                                 C              Am Em Am
From all of the things that I'll probably say or do
Em            Am Em Am
I'll probably do
 
 
CHORUS
D              A
I could stay a while
    C                    G
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
D                A
And I can tell a joke
 C                         G
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
D                   A
And we could share a kiss
    C                      G
But I feel like I can't go through with this
D                    A
And I bet we could build a home
          C                    G
But I know the right thing for me to do
                 Am    Em Am Em
Is to leave you alone
           Am     Em
Leave you alone, now
 
 BREAK
Am Em x3
 
VERSE 4
Am               Em
You'll probably call me a fool
        D                        C
And say I'm doing exactly what a coward would do
Am
And I'm beginning to like you
       D                     C
It's a shame what a lame way to live
    G          Am
But what can I do?
                Em           D
I hope you appreciate what I do
 
 
OUTRO
                             Am   Em  Am
I'm a martyr for my love for you
   Em                     Am  Em   Am
A martyr for my love for you, now
  Em                     Am   Em Am
A martyr for my love for you
   Em                     Am
A martyr for my love for you
