                      G (2)                         C (2)

These are the last tears I'm gonna cry for you

         D/F# (2)                        G (2)
My cryin's through I'm moving on

                G                       G7               C                            G/B
I don't regret and won't forget a single thing that we went through

                         Am   D/F#                G (2, hold 2nd measure)
But these are the last tears I'm gonna cry for you


                         G (2)                       C (2)
You take things so much easier than I do

                      Am (2)                                     D/F# (2)
And you could live your life without me if you had to

                Fadd9 (2)                                  C           G/B
And you believe that in the end it all works out right

      Am (2)                 D/F# (2)
And I might if not for you

               Em                                 C                  Am     D/F#       G (2, hold 2nd measure)
And if you ask one which one lives just alone for love               I do




                   G (2)                                              C (2)
There was a time when all signs pointed to the warm south

         Am (2)                                  D/F# (2)
The planets all lined up and built a new house

                    Fadd9 (2)                                C           G/B
And everything we talked about felt like a prophecy

                      Am (2)                                   D/F# (2)
And when you looked at me they all came true

               Em                        C                    Am      D/F#    G (2, hold 2nd measure)
And if you asked which one wants to go the distance        I do


                C                  G/B                  Am               G/B
I'm gonna rack my mind one last time until I cannot think

                C                    G/B            Am                     D/F#
I'm gonna dip into your memory and take a good stiff drink

                        Em                    C                        G (½)       G/F# (½)  Em
And when I'm drunk on the last drop of sadness about how we went wrong

                  Am            G/B                           C                   G/B
I'm gonna play this song, make some coffee black and strong

                         Am           G/B                     C (2)            D (2, hold 2nd measure)
Give thanks for healing time and finally make up my mind




                       C    D    Em   D7 (hold)

These are the last tears                      I'm gonna cry for you
