    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
