Operator chords
Jim Croce *

G  Bm                    C                  G
Operator, well could you help me place this call
Am                    D                   Em  D
See the number on the matchbook is old an faded
G                 Bm
She's living in L.A
        C                  G
With my best old ex friend Ray
Am               D7                      Em  D C Bm D
Guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

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

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

    G              C               G
But isn't that the way they say it goes
            C        D
But let's forget all that
    G                     Am
And give me the number if you can find it
C  D     Em           D             Em          C
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show

         D        C
I've overcome the blow
                Em      G
I've learned to take it well
       Am      C                   G
I only wish my words could just convince myself
        C           D
That it just wasn't real
    C                     G
But that's not the way it feels
                C                     G
No, no, no, no, that's not the way it feels

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

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