    With some other girl you knew before

    G7                                                 F7

         Between the two of us girls ya know I love you more

         When I found out yesterday.

    Don't ya know that I heard it through the grapevine

    Not much longer would you be mine

                                          C7                                        F7

    Oh, don't ya know that I heard it through the grapevine

              C7                                                       F7

    And I'm just about, just about, just about, to lose my mind

          C5 (4 w/riff)

    Oh yes, I am. 

     

                       C7 (2)

    Boy take a good look at these tears of mine

                               G7                  F7

    Baby, baby these tears I can't hold inside

      C7 (2)

    Losin' you would end my life you see

    G7                                       F7

         Because you mean that much to me

    Am                           F7

         You could've told me yourself

    C7                               F7

         That you love somebody else.

                 C7                        F7

    Baby, but I just can't help bein' confused

               C7                                  F7

    If it's true please baby, won't ya tell me dear

               Am                   F7

    Oh-h-h, do you plan to let me go
