How To Play

Capo:2nd fret

INTRO
C  F C F C G F
 
Verse 1:
C
Well the first time that I saw her,
F                             C
Standing in the middle of the road.
F                 C
Eyes as bright as Christmas lights,
C                      G
Wearing someone else’s clothes.
C
I did my best to ignore her,
    F                       C
But Ignoring my best pretty soon.
F                      C
We spent the night all tangled tight,
G                    F             C       F  C
In an armchair in my friends front room.
 
CHORUS
       F                 G                       C       F  C
I said darling you know, darling you know I cant stay.
            Bb                   F                  C       F  C
Cause I’ve given my heart and my word to a girl far away.
C                  Em                     F                    Fm
I felt weak as she kissed my cheek, and aside when I heard her say.
Am                 G            F          G           C
Never knew I could get my heart broken, in less than a day.
 
F C F C G F
 
Verse 2:
C
Oh and the next time that I saw her,
F                        C
Must have been a year or more.
F                 C
Face stained with mascara,
C                    G
Shivering outside my door.
C
I did my best to assure her,
    F                       C
But assurance isn't easy to give.
F                         C
You've never been sure of anything much,
G                   F          C        F  C
And get less so the longer you live.
 
Chorus 2:
         F                 G                        C       F  C
She said darling you know, darling you know I can’t stay.
           Bb                    F                 C       F  C
Cause I've given my heart and my word to a boy far away.
C                Em                  F                         Fm
I spoke soft and pretended to cough, like I didn't care either way.
Am                 G            F         G       C       F  C
Never knew I could get my heart broken in so many ways.
 
F C F C
F C F C G F
 
Verse 3:
C
And the last time that I saw her,
F                       C
Standing in the pouring rain.
F             C
Hair a little shorter,
C                              G
But everything else looked the same.
C
I could'a told her that I adored her,
F                                 C
She coulda said she felt the same way.
F                        C                G                F        Am        F
But we just smiled cause sometimes words, aren’t the right words to say.
                     C                G                F                  C
We just smiled cause sometimes words, aren’t the right words to say.
