[Verse 2]

(same progression)

You know that a man ain't supposed to cry, but these tears I can't hold
inside.  Losin' you would end my life you see, cause you mean that much to me.
You could have told me yourself that you found someone else.  Instead I


[Chorus]

Dm                                         G
heard it through the grapevine  not much longer would

lose my mind.  Honey, honey yeah.

People say believe half of what you see, son, and none of what you hear.
I can't help bein' confused if it's true please tell me dear?
Do you plan to let me go for the other guy that you knew before?
Oo I


[Chorus]

Dm                                         G

hello everybody,
after just downloading "i heard it" etc. from the Nevada site, i thought hay,
why don't i put my own in. here goes

ok, just to start off things, put your FIRST finger on the second fret, THIRD
string. this will make it a lot easier!:-)


e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|---2-----2--2--2--------2-2----2---------------------------|
D|---0-----0--3--0--------0-0----3--2-0----------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

repeat 40000's times

that's basically it. there's two guitars in the song. the first plays that
part and the other plays a reptiotion of the following chords:

Dm     A7   G.    then the end of the verse comes in, and i guess you can
throw in a Bm. here are the verses:-)


[Verse 1]

Bet you're wondering how i knew 'bout your plans to make me blue, with some
other guy that you knew before. between the two of us guys you knew i love
you more. it took me by surprise i must say when i found yesterday

Ooh I

can't help being confused if it's true please tell me dear? do u plan to let
me go for the others guy that you knew before.

Oooh I


[Chrous]

p.s.   if there are 2 guitar players around, one person play the crap at the
top, and another play the samething, but just improvise.
3rd String-5th string
4th String-6th string,
meaning, the other person play a nice bassy part, just following the same
shit at the top, but using 3rd string as the 5th string.


any problems, confusion, Death threats, requests, (Live (the group), AC/DC,
Sringe Toting PIlots!) anything, or if your just sitiing around your Dorm,
bored, and if want to talk about modern music, mail me!

first of all, use your 2nd finger to hold the 2nd fret on the 3rd string... just as easy, and it will teach you to use your fingers correctly

Hold the open Dm while using your pinkie and 2nd finger to play the riff (practice) Use the Dm to add depth to the riff

Brings it to life.
