IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND       -       Johnny Cash

  Eadd9          Dadd9

G|--4-4--4--4-----2--2--2--2--/

Eadd9                                                    
       If you could read my mind, love 
Dadd9                                                    
       What a tale my thoughts could tell
Eadd9                                                    
       Just like an old time movie 
Dadd9                                                    
       'bout a ghost from a wishing-well
E              E7            A                            
  In a castle      dark or a     fortress strong
      B                 C#m                               
With     chains upon my       feet 
     A                     E                            
You     know that ghost is     me
     A               E/Ab                                  
And     I will never        be set free
    F#m                    B                   Eadd9          
As       long as there’s a    ghost you can't         see 


Eadd9                                                    
        If I could read your mind, love 
Dadd9                                                    
        What a tale your thoughts could tell
Eadd9                                                    
       Just like a paperback novel 
Dadd9                                                    
       The kind that drugstores sell
E                      E7                                
   When you reach the     part 
           A                                          
Where the     heartaches come
     B                C#m                                 
The     hero would be       me 
     A               E                                  
And     heroes often    fail
     A                      E/Ab                           
And     you won't read that        book again
     F#m                      B                  Eadd9           
Be-       cause the ending's    just too hard to         take
Dadd9 – Eadd9- Dadd9 


Eadd9              E7              A                            
       I'd walk a-      way like a     movie star - 
          B                       C#m                     
Who gets    burned in a three way       script
     A               E                                  
And     enter number     two 
   A                 E/Ab                                  
A     movie queen to        play the scene
    F#m                   B                     C#m           
Of       bringing all the     good things out in       me 
         A                     E                        
But for    now, love, let's be     real
   A                         E/Ab                           
I     never thought I could        act this way 
          F#m                   B                         
And I've      got to say that I     just don't get it 
A                       E/Ab                                
    I don't know where        we went wrong 
         F#m                                            
But the       feeling's gone
       B                    Eadd9                           
And I     just can't get it        back 


Eadd9                                                    
        If you could read my mind, love 
Dadd9                                                    
        What a tale my thoughts could tell
Eadd9                                                    
       Just like an old time movie 
Dadd9                                                    
       'bout a ghost from a wishing-well
E                E7            A                             
    In a castle     dark or a    fortress strong
      B                C#m                                
With    chains upon my       feet 
     A               E                                  
The     story always    ends 


     A                 E/Ab                                
And    if you read be-       tween the lines 
        F#m                    B                  C#m         
You’ll      know that I’m just    trying to under-      stand 
     A                  E                               
The    feeling that you     lack
  A                       E/Ab                            
I    never thought I could       feel this way 
          F#m                   B                         
And I've      got to say that I    just don't get it 
A                      E/Ab                                
    I don't know where       we went wrong 
         F#m                         B                   Eadd9     
But the      feeling's gone - And I    just can't get it         back
