Intro:
Gm F Eb Eb F Bbsus Bb

Verse:
Gm        F      Eb
I wrote a simple song

Eb          F         Bbsus Bb
With simple words and harmony

Gm        F    Eb            F          G
It wasn't very long before a star I was bound to be

Gm       F          Eb
I didn't care if it made the charts

Eb     F            Bbsus Bb
I only wrote it for you and me

Gm   F                Eb
They think that they're so smart

Eb             F             G
They're not as smart as they want to be

Gm           F      Eb
They took my simple song

Eb               F             Bbsus Bb
They changed the words and the melody

Gm      F         Eb
Made it all sound wrong

Eb     F             G
Now it sounds like a symphony

Chorus:
Eb  C/E          F           Bb    Horn Riff e--6-6-6--------|
Who told them to mess with mine              B----------6-8--|
                                             G--------7------|
Eb  C/E           F    Bb                    D---------------|
Who gave them the right                      A---------------|
                                             E---------------|
Eb   C/E      F       Bb
That song was personal

Eb                       Eb/A      D
I wrote it for you, it's yours and mine, girl

Verse:
Gm      F          Eb

Eb     F            Bbsus Bb

Gm              F          Eb
They think that they're so smart

Eb             F             G
They're not as smart as they want to be


Chorus:
Eb  C/E          F            Bb
Who told them to mess with mine

Eb  C/E           F       Bb
Who gave them the right

Eb   C/E      F       Bb
That song was personal

Eb                       Eb/A      D
I wrote it for you, it's yours and mine, girl

Rest in peace, Billy
