Did You Ever Want To Cry:Mamas And The Papas.
Flip Side Of 'Creeque Alley' on DUNHILL RECORDS
in 1967.

INTRO:  Fm Eb Bb Gb Ab C

#1.
Fm                   Bbm  Ab                       C
Did you ever want to cry, but you didn't know just why?
F                   Bb             Eb             Ab
Did you ever sit up all night long just listening to 
              Db
that same old song?
    Bb                   Db               F
The one they played when she said nothing could go wrong?

CHORUS:
Fm       Bbm           Ab      C    F
Right, I know you did, oh, you kid..did you really think 
     Bb
that she'd be true?
Eb                    Ab     Db
Wasn't that rather na-ive of you?
    Bb                           Db       C
And now she's dropped you like a worn-out shoe.

#2.
Fm            Ab       Bbm  Ab                    C
She's got you drinking gin, and you know that's a sin.
F                    Bb           Eb                Ab
You go honky-tonking every night..you get drunk and then 
    Gb      Db
you start a fight.
  Bb                       Eb     Cm
I know that you think that it's alright.

CHORUS:
Fm                         Bb    Ab                    C
Wrong, it's not the way to live, you only get what you give.
F                           Bb
You can live your life just as you please.
Eb                     Ab        Gb        Db
But, when you lie with dogs, you gotta get fleas.
Bb                        Db           Eb
And now she's brought you down to your knees.

#3.
Fm        Ab               Bbm        Ab
Arms that used to hold you tight, you miss them in the middle 
       C
of the night.
F                       Bb            Eb        Ab
You burned your candles at both ends..now, it's too late, to
        Db
late to make amends.
Bb                    Db       Bbm
You've even lost your old time friends.

#4.
Fm       Ab              Bbm   Ab
Enemies, glad to see you down, people, they don't want you 
        C
hanging round.
Fm           Ab      Bbm  Fm             Ab        Bbm
Did you ever want to cry..but you didn't know just why?
Fm       Ab       Bbm  Fm                         Bbm
Right, I know you did..wrong, it's not the way to live.

OUTRO:
Fm           Ab      F     Bbm
Did you ever want to cry-y-y-y?
