The original studio recording is a bit sharp of standard
concert pitch, so to play along use a chromatic tuner and 
tune up to approx.(minus)-40 below C#.
Alternatively you will find that, in general, live versions
are more likely to be in standard pitch.

C      = x32010    G7   = 323003    G    = 320033
C+add9 = x32130    Am7  = x02013    Am   = x02210
F      = 133211    G/B  = x20033    Bb   = x13331
Fm     = 133111    Em/B = x22000    Ab   = 466544

[Verse 1]
            C                           C
I was al - right, for a while, I could smile for a while,
            C                              C+add9
But when I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight,
            F                 Fm
When you stopped to say hel - lo,
                  C                  G7
And though you wished me well, you couldn't tell...

 G7  Am7 G/B    C        Em/B        C        Em/B
That I'd been crying---- over you, crying---- over you,
      F         G                    F                  G
Then you said, "So long!", left me standing ...all a - lone,
            C     C+add9    F      Fm
Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying,
              C        Am
It's hard to under - stand,
           G                                  C
That the touch of your hand ...can start me crying!

[Verse 2]
               C              C             C
I thought that I ...was over you, but it's true, so true,
            C               C+add9
I love you even more, than I did before,
       F                 Fm           C
But, darling, what can I do, for you don't love me,
And I'll always be...

  C         Em/B        C         Em/B
Crying----  over you, crying----  over you
 F        G                     F           G
Yes----, now you're gone, and, from this moment on,
           C             C+add9
I'll be crying, (crying) crying, (crying)
  F                Fm             C
Crying, (crying) crying---, I'm crying-------,
  C      Am    F      G
Crying-------  o-----ver----...
    C             Bb             Ab    G        C
