--------------------------------------...............

*from 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' (1968)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Ebm)


[Intro]

Dm  G/D, Dm  G/D  Dm (x5)


[Verse 1]

       Dm                   G/D   Dm
Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew,
           A                G7
'Bout your plans to make me blue.
                Dm      G/D     Dm
With some other guy you knew be-fore,
                  A                          G7
Between two of us guys, you know I loved you more.


[Bridge 1]

                  Bm            G7
It took me by sur-prise, I must say,
       Dm               G7
When I found out yester-day. Don't you know that;


[Chorus 1]

  Dm                   G7    Dm
I heard it through the grape-vine;
         G
Not much longer, would you be mine.
      Dm                   G7    Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        G7                                       (Dm)
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.


[Break]

   Dm
(I heard it through the grapevine,
                          G/D Dm       G/D  Dm, G/D
Not much longer would you be  my baby).


[Verse 2]

         Dm            G/D      Dm
I know a man ain't sup-posed to cry,
          A                      G7
But these tears, I can't hold in-side.
       Dm                G/D       Dm
Losing you, would end my life, you see,
         A                 G7
'Cos you mean that much to me.


[Bridge 2]

               Bm           G7
You could have told me your-self,
         Dm            G7
That you loved someone else.


[Chorus 2]

           Dm                   G7    Dm
Instead, I heard it through the grape-vine;
         G
Not much longer would you be mine.
      Dm                   G7    Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        G7                                       (Dm)
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.


[Break]

   Dm
(I heard it through the grapevine,
                          G/D Dm       G/D  Dm, G/D
Not much longer would you be  my baby).


[Interlude]

Dm  G/D, Dm  G/D  Dm (x5)


[Verse 3]

Dm
 People say; believe half of what you see,
         A                G7
Son, and none of what you hear.
            Dm
But I can't help, but be confused,
        A                     G7
If it's true, please tell me, dear.


[Bridge 3]

       Bm             G7
Do you plan to let me go,
              Dm               G7 
For the other guy you loved be-fore?


[Chorus 3]

  Dm                   G7    Dm
I heard it through the grape-vine;
         G
Not much longer, would you be mine.
      Dm                   G7    Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        G7                                        Dm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.


[Break]

   Dm
(I heard it through the grapevine,
                          G/D Dm       G/D  Dm, G/D
Not much longer would you be  my baby).


[Coda] (with Vocal Ad-Libs)

Play 0-0-3-0---0-0-3-2 on the D string for an intro if you like the one string sound better.
