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.

There is a problem here .... whatever key you transpose to, none of the B7sus chords change!

Try one of the other 'transpose' sites. I'm sure it'll change
then. If you're still around tell me what key you want
the song in and I'll change it for you. KK.
