BOYS DON’T CRY – The Cure
(Tabbed by G. S. Saavedra II)


[Intro]

 A Bm C#m D D*C#m*Bm*A (x4)


[Verse]

*A               Bm
 I would say I'm sorry 
        C#m                   D   
 If I thought that it would change your mind 
  A               Bm
 But I know that this time 
         C#m                 D   
 I have said too much, been too unkind 


[Refrain]

C#m         Bm            C#m                   Bm
  I try to laugh about it cover it all up with lies 
C#m         Bm            C#m                     Bm
  I try to laugh about it hiding the tears in my eyes 


[Chorus I]

         A    Bm   C#m  D D*C#m*Bm* 
 'Cause boys don't cry  
  *A    Bm   C#m  D D*C#m*Bm*
  Boys don't cry 


[Verse]

*A                  Bm 
 I would break down at your feet 
     C#m              D   
 And beg forgiveness plead with you 
  A               Bm
 But I know that it's too late 
     C#m                 D   
 And now there's nothing I can do 

Refrain]

C#m            Bm             C#m                   Bm
  So I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies 
C#m         Bm             C#m                     Bm
  I try to laugh about it, hiding the tears in my eyes 


[Chorus I]

         A    Bm   C#m  D D*C#m*Bm* 
 'Cause boys don't cry  
  *A    Bm   C#m  D D*C#m*Bm*
  Boys don't cry 


[Verse]

*A                 Bm
 I would tell you that I loved you
 C#m                D   
 If I thought that you would stay 
  A               Bm
 But I know that it's no use 
      C#m            D   
 And you're already gone away 


[Bridge]

E               F#m7
 Misjudged your limits 
E               F#m7
 Pushed you too far 
E             F#m7
 Took you for granted 
E                             D - E
 I thought that you needed me more more more


[Verse]

     A               Bm 
 Now I would do most anything 
    C#m                 D   
 To get you back by my side 
  A          Bm 
 But I just keep on laughing
 C#m                     D   
 Hiding the tears in my eyes 


[Chorus II]
          A  Bm      C#m  D D*C#m*Bm* 
 'Cause boys   don't cry  
 *A    Bm   C#m  D D*C#m*Bm*
 Boys don't cry 
 *A Bm           C#m  D D*C#m*Bm*
      Boys don't cry 

[Outro] 

A Bm C#m D D-C#m-Bm-A

Nice work, just at the end of the part E-F#m7-E-F#m7... the last one changes to D and then E before going back to A.
