Repeat Intro

 

E7 (4)

Told you baby one more time

Don't make me sit all alone and cry

             B7         A7                         E7 (2)

Well it's over  I know it but I can't let go

 

              E7 (4)

I'm like a fish out of water, a cat in a tree

You don't even want to talk with me

             B7         A7                         E7 (2)

Well it's over I know it but I can't let go

 

Chorus:

                E7 (4)

He won't take me back when I come around

Says he's sorry then he puts me out

           A7 (2)

I got a big chain around my neck

        E7 (2)

And I'm broken down like a train wreck

              B7       A7                      E7 (2)

Well it's over I know it but I can't let go

 

        E7 (4)

See I got a candle and it burns so bright

In my window every night

             B7         A7                         E7 (2)

Well it's over  I know it but I can't let go

 

 E7 (4)

You don't like to see me standing around

Feel like  I been shot and didn't fall down

             B7         A7                         E7 (2)

Well it's over  I know it but I can't let go

 

Chorus

 

Instrumental Chorus x2

 

E7 (4)

Turn on the trouble like you turn on a light

Went off and left me it just ain't right

             B7         A7                         E7 (2)

Well it's over  I know it but I can't let go

 

E7 (4)

Round every corner something I see

 Bring me right back how it used to be

             B7         A7                         E7 (2)

Well it's over  I know it but I can't let go

 

Chorus x2

 

     B7          A7                          E7 (2)

It's over  I know it but I can't let go

     B7          A7                          E7 (2)

It's over  I know it but I can't let go

     B7          A7                          E7 (2, ritard, hold 3rd beat of last measure)

It's over  I know it but I can't let go
