Between The Lines – Steve Goodman
Transcribed by Jon Paul Sapsford

[Verse 1]
C                                 F
The day you're born they sign a piece of paper
C                         G
That will certify the date of your birth
C                        F
And the day you die they sign another
     C           G             C   
Just to prove you've gone back to the earth

[Chorus]
Bb                          F                
And between those two pieces of paper
C                           G    
There is the truth that is so hard to find
C                      F
And the story of your life is written ', but  
C              G         C
You must read in between the lines 

[Verse 2]
Bb                              F     
Now when you're young you think it don't matter
C                           G    
If you leap before you look
C                         F
But those old folks are wiser and sadder
C              G         C
From the chances that they took

[Chorus 2]
Bb                           F    
Now when your chance comes along, you must take it
C                    G    
Just be careful and take your time
C                                  F
And the chances are good you will make it
C           G          C
If you can read in between the lines

[Bridge]
F              
And when someone tells you they love you
C             
And no one has ever loved you more
F
It is wise to stop and consider how many
Dm                         G 
Times they might have said that before

[Chorus 3]
F
Because when love leaves you cryin'
C
Then you will surely lose your mind
F
And you might have known love was lying
Dm                     G
If you could read in between the lines

[Verse 4]
F
And when someone tells you they love you
C
And no one has ever loved you more
F
It is wise to stop and consider how many
Dm                G
Times they might have said that before

[Chorus 4]
F
Because when love leaves you cryin'
C
Then you will surely lose your mind
F
And you might have known love was lying
Dm                     G
If you could read in between the lines
