[Intro]

|  /   /   /   /  |  /   /   /   /   |  /   /   /   /  |


[Verse 1]
G      A      A7/C#    D     Dmaj7/F#
    If I seem kind of blue to you,
G                    A       A7/C#    D             Dmaj7/F#
    It's just 'cause I'm not getting  ...through to you,
G                A    A7/C#     F#m     Bm
    And I'll do any - thing you want me to,
Em                          F#m
    Just so we can get a - long!


[Verse 2]
G  G          A        A7/C#   D      Dmaj7/F#
^  ^   And if I should have a mind to say,
G                A       A7/C#    D          Dmaj7/F#
    What is it makes you want to  ...be this way?
G                  A        A7/C#      F#m        Bm
    Could be to - day's just not my...      lucky day,
       Em                           F#m
And I...  can't do right for doing wrong!


[Verse 3]
G  G          A      A7/C#     D      Dmaj7/F#
^  ^   I've told you what you mean to me,
G               A      A7/C#        D             Dmaj7/F#
    I've even told you what you've  ...been--- to me,
G               A      A7/C#    F#m        Bm
    I wish we could be where we both be - long,
       Em           A                D      D7
But I  ...can't do right for doing wrong!


[Verse 4]
G                           A       A4   A
    I say too little, or I say too much,
   D                Dsus2     D
I see no recognition in your eyes,
Bm                           F#m
     I try to fix it with a tender touch,
       G                   C         G/B      A     A7
But I see, too late, the chance has passed me by!


[Verse 5]
                                  D     Dmaj7/F#
Sometimes when I don't have much time to stay,
G                A        A7/C#      D           Dmaj7/F#
    I'll make a move, and watch you  ...turn a - way,
G                A       A7/C#      F#m       Bm
    I'll hesi - tate when  I should come on strong, 
       Em             A              F#m      G    A7 A7/C#
But I   ...can't do right for doing wrong! |  /  /  /  /  |

[Verse 6]
G                           A       A4   A
    I say too little, or I say too much,
   D                Dsus2     D
I see no recognition in your eyes,

       G                   C         G/B      A    A7
But I see, too late, the chance has passed me by!


[Verse 7]
                              D     Dmaj7/F#
And we could get to where we want to be,
G                 A    A7/C#        D        Dmaj7/F#
    With just a little faith, and...   hone - sty
G                 A     A7/C#    F#m         Bm
    Instead of drifting where we don't be - long,
       Em            A              F#m
But I  ...can't do right for doing wrong,
G              A       A7/C#   D     Dmaj7/F#    G     A  A7/C#
    Can't do right for doing wrong----------! |  /  /  /  /  |
