Tell Me To My Face

By: The Hollies as Arr. by Dan Fogelberg & Tim Weisberg
From: Album - Twin Sons of Different Mothers (1978)

Intro:  Am  E  F  E 

[Verse 1]
  Am                                 
And though you try to justify the meaning
  E                                      
Of the note you sent this evening
  F                              E  
To my door, you're not deceiving me
  Am                                        
Well, I'd have thought that you'd have known much better
   E                                  
Sending 'round an unsigned letter
   F                            E 
Facing me would be much better now

[Chorus]
    E                      Am    G    Am   
Is it just that you can't face the future with me
    E                    Am
Can't you tell me to my face
    E                       Am G  Am
You just took the coward's way to say goodbye
    E                           Am
How would you feel here in my place

[Verse 2]
And now I know my love is lost on you
And nothing you can say or do
Will turn my head around the other way
I'd have thought you'd have the decency to come and tell the truth to me
Instead of telling lies your eyes betray

[Chorus]
Is it just that you can't face the future with me
Can't you tell me to my face
You just took the coward's way to say goodbye
How would you feel here in my place

Guitar Riff 2X

F             E           E7       Am
Tell me to my face you're leaving now
F             E           E7       Am
Tell me to my face you're leaving now

[Verse 3]
Though you try to justify the meaning
Of the note you sent this evening
To my door, you're not deceiving me
I'd have thought that you'd have known much better
Sending round an unsigned letter
Facing me would be much better now

[Chorus]
Is it just that you can't face the future with me
Can't you tell me to my face
You just took the coward's way to say goodbye
How would you feel here in my place

Guitar Riff 2X

F             E           E7       Am
Tell me to my face you're leaving now
F             E           E7       Am
Tell me to my face you're leaving now

oops, sorry:

F E E7 Am
Tell me to my face you're leaving now
F E E7 Am
Tell me to my face you're leaving now

You can throw that E7 in throughout the song after the E

to simplify you can ignore Am G Am progression. Its not as fun or interesting but can be done.
