Eb Gm6 Ab Bb Eb Gm6 On a warm summer day, in the hour of my youth Ab Bb7 I walked the four miles to your door Eb Gm6 You wore a straw hat, high heels to match Ab Bb7 And the whitest cotton dress I ever saw Eb Gm6 When I tried to hold you, you turned away Ab Abm You don't have to tell me, it's all over your face Eb Ab I can see the writing on the wall Eb Ab Bb And there's a distance in your eyes that says it all Eb Read it and weep Gm6 I can't get no sleep Ab Bb7 'Cos I know you won't change your mind tomorrow Eb Gm6 I'm sinking under, I don't wanna lose you Ab Bb7 This emptiness is more than I can handle Eb Gm6 You gave me no reason, but you gave me rhyme Ab Abm I put the words to music and I was out of my mind Eb Ab All I've got's the letters that I keep Eb Ab Bb7 And sometimes just before I go to sleep Eb I read 'em 'n' weep Gm6 You swept me off my feet Ab Bb7 Now I know, time's the only healer Eb This jealousy hurts Gm6 The thought of seeing you with someone else Ab Cuts like a knife Bb7 Into the heart of me Eb Life is a river Gm6 It twists and it turns Ab But I'll get over you babe Abm I'll live and I'll learn Eb Ab The paper's full of January sales Eb Ab Bb7 I guess I won't be buying fairytales Eb Read 'em 'n' weep Gm6 Cryin' in my sleep Ab Bb7 'Cos I know I'm gonna be alone tomorrow Eb And I walked the four miles Gm6 Yeah I walked the four miles Ab Bb7 In tears and sorrow Eb Gm6 This was the story, here's where it ends Ab Next time I'll be wiser Abm I won't get let down again Eb Ab I wanted you so badly, but I failed Eb Ab Bb7 Now all I got's these little paper trails Eb Read 'em 'n' weep Gm6 Read 'em 'n' weep Ab Bb7 Oh yeah Eb Read 'em 'n' weep Gm6 Read 'em 'n' weep Ab Bb7 Ah, ha Eb Ab I wanted you so badly, but I failed Eb Ab Bb7 Eb Now all I got's these little paper trails
