THE WOMAN BEFORE ME
(by Jude Johnstone; sung by Trisha Yearwood)
--------------------------------------------
[Actually in D; capo 2.]
[Each chord is half a measure, except chords joined by a hyphen
(E.G., "Bm - A") are half A measure _total_.]

G    Am - G    C    C
[intro]

              F        F       G         C - G
I can see you turn away when I ask what for
                 F        F    G        C - G
You say it isn't anything, but I'm not sure
               F             F      G        C - G
Something underneath the skin won't let you be
               F          F    G - F   C
And you try to keep it in, but I  can see

    G - Am - G/B - C   C                     F        C
The wo - man  be   -  fore me must have been hard on you
            F             C            G          G
'Cause that hurt in your eyes, I never put you through
G - Am - G/B - C   C            F        C
Sometimes  I  think you must be talking to
    G        Am  -  G    C   C
The woman before me and you

Sometimes in an argument, it will show
When you go a little farther than you meant to go
I know you don't mean the things that you say
I just wanna ease the pain that's in your way

But the woman before me must have been hard on you
'Cause that hurt in your eyes, I never put you through
Sometimes I think you must be talking to
The woman before me and you

Am            G   -  F      C           F
If there are sorrows that bring back a tear
Am              G   -   F   C   C
Don't let them keep us apart
Am           G    -    F    C          F
You oughta know you've got nothing to fear
Am          G    G
Here in my heart

'Cause you and I will never be like the past
Whatever kind of memories that you have
Nothing's gonna hurt me how, can't you see
I already made it a vow that I can keep

But the woman before me must have been hard on you
'Cause that hurt in your eyes, I never put you through
Sometimes I think you must be talking to
The woman before me and you
Sometimes I think you must be talking to
    G        Am -  G     C - G7sus  C.
The woman before me and you
