[Verse]
A                D                  A              A
Why does she sing her sad songs for me? I'm not the one
A                D                  A              A
to tenderly bring her soft sympathy.  I've just begun
E                           E                        A         A
to see me way clear and its plain if I stop I should fall.
E                           E                            A      A
I can lay down a tear for her pain, just a tear and that's all.

[Pre-Chorus]
D                        A     D
What does she want me to do?  She says that she knows
E                             A                  A
these moments are rare, I suppose that it's true.
D                  E                           A               A
Then on she goes to say I don't care, ah, she knows that I do.

[Chorus]
E                        E                       A          A
Maybe she just has to sing for the sake of the song
E                        E                         A(back to intro)
And who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong?

Repeat and enjoy.

Great tab PM, thanks! Only, I think the penultimate A in the pre-chorus should actually be a D. Sounds better to me, anyway!
