If You Could Read My Mind:Gordon Lightfoot.
#5 in 1970.

INTRO: A A9 A A9

#1.
A                               Em6/A
If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell.
A                            Em6/A
Just like an old time movie, about a ghost from a wishing well.
A           A9         D                     E              F#m
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet.
D                  A
You know that ghost is me.
D                A/B            B7sus         E                    A
And I will never be set free as long as I'm a ghost that you can't see.

#2.
A                               Em6/A
If I could read your mind love, what a tale your thoughts could tell.
A                                Em6/A
Just like a paperback novel, the kind that the drugstore sells.
A                  A9             D                    E             F#m
When you reach the part where the heartaches come, the hero would be me.
    D            A
But heroes often fail.
    D                   A/B           B7sus              E                A
And you won't read that book again, because the ending's just too hard to take.

(INTERLUDE:) A Em6/A (x2)

CHORUS:
A         A9         D                   E                     F#m
I'd walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way script.
D            A      D              A/B               B7sus
Enter number two..a movie queen to play the scene of bringing all the
E                  F#m
good things out in me.
        D                   A
But for now, love, let's be real.
  D                     A/B                    B7sus             E
I never thought I could act this way, and I've got to say that I just 

don't get it.
D                  A/B                   B7sus                E
I don't know where we went wrong but the feeling's gone and I just
             A
can't get it back.

#3.
A                               Em6/A
If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell.
A                            Em6/A
Just like an old time movie, about a ghost from a wishing well.
A           A9         D                     E              F#m
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet.
    D              A
But stories always end.
    D             A/B                     B7sus              E
And if you read between the lines, you'll know that I'm just trying
        F#m        D                 A
to understand, the feelings that you lack.
  D                     A/B                  B7sus
I never thought I could feel this way, and I got to say that
  E
I just don't get it.
D                  A/B                   B7sus   
I don't know where we went wrong but the feeling's gone
      E                 A      A9 Em6/A  A
and I just can't get it back.


A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
