Operator - Jim Croce

Intro: G// Bm// C// Am/C//   G// Bm// C// Am/C// G

G  Bm                    C                  G
Operator, well could you help me place this call
Am                    D                    Em  D/C/Bm/D
See the number on the matchbook is old and faded
G                 Bm           C                  G
She's living in L.A,   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           Bm                        Am    D
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
                  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
                    D           C                     G     Bm// C// Am/C//G
That it just wasn't real,   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/C/Bm/D
Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me
G                       Bm                C             G
There's something in my eyes, 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           Bm                        Am    D
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
                  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
                    D           C                     G     
That it just wasn't real,   But that's not the way it feels
C                G     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/C/Bm/D
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to
G                  Bm                   C                 G
Thank you for your time, 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           Bm                        Am    D
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
                  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
                    D           C                     G     Bm// C// Am/C//G
That it just wasn't real,   But that's not the way it feels

Bm C Am/C//G
