    Chorus:

                          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

     

    Chorus

     

                       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

    Chorus

                    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

     

    Chorus

     

                           C    D    Em   D7 (hold)

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