Subject: MUSIC: OPERATOR (Jim Croce)

Title:                          OPERATOR                (Jim Croce)

                G  Bm                 C    B  Am7   G    C B A G
                Operator oh could you help me place this call
                Am                        D                    Em   D C B A G
                You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded
                G                 Bm         C    B   Am7 G     C B A G
                She's living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ray
                Am                 D7                      Em    D C B A G
                A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

                G              C               G
        CHORUS: Isn't that the way they say it goes
           |                C       D
           |    But lets forget all that
           |        G                     Am
           |    And give me the number if you can find it
           |       C D   Em           Bm                       Am
           |    So I can call just to tell her I'm fine and to show
           |    D                 C                             G
           |    I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well
           |                   Am                          C
           |    I only wish my words could just convince myself
           |                        D7        C                       G
           |    That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels

                G   Bm                C   (B) Am7   G    C (B A G)
                Operator oh could you help me place this call
                Am                     D7                   Em     (D C B A G)
                Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me
                G                       Bm               C (B    A     G )
                There's something in my eye, you know it happens every time
                Am                D7                        Em     (D C B A G)
                I think about the love that I thought would save me


                CHORUS

                G   Bm            C  (B) Am7 G   C (B A G)
                Operator let's forget about this call
                Am                   D7                 Em     (D C B A G)
                There's no one there I really wanted to talk to
                G                  Bm
                Thank you for your time,
                Bm                C (B    Am7  G C B A G)
                Cause you've been so much more than kind
                Am               D7    Em D C B A G
                You can keep the dime


                CHORUS

This is a tab translated from guitar. It does not translate exactly to uke. to get the right effect for instance, use Em7 instead of E. It's not exact but it is closer than E on uke.

Use proper slides instead of chord changes to play it like Croce (like just run down A on first and 2nd string ending with D instead of A G F# E D)
