INTRO:  G  Dsus  Am  Em

VERSE 1:
G                  D    Am               Em
Since you've been gone, I feel my life slipping away.
G            D    Am                  Em
I look to the sky, and everything is turning gray.
G              D           Em                    F
All I made was one mistake, how much more will I have to pay.

CHORUS:
C               G/D             C/E             D/F#           D
W/why can't you think it over.  Why can't you forget about the past?
G                D            Am               C
When love makes a sound babe, a heart needs a second chance.
G            D          Am                  D
Don't put me down babe, can't you see I love you.
G                           D         
Since you've been gone  I've been in a trance.  
Am                   Em 
This heart needs a second chance.  
Am                     C                      G
Don't say it's over, I just can't say goodbye.

VERSE 2: (lead-in: Dsus  Am  Em  D)
G          D    Am                 Em
So this is love, standing in the pouring rain.
G              D    Am                  Em
I've called on you.  'Cause she never meant a thing.
G                  D            Em             F
All I know I ain't got the right to ask you to sympathize.  But ... (to CHORUS)

BRIDGE: (lead-in: G  D/F#  Em)
D                  G                   Em
I never loved her.  I never needed her.  
                           C   G/B   Am
She was willing and that's all there is to say.
               C/G                          D
Don't forsake me, please don't leave me now.
G      D                  Am
A heart needs a second chance.

INSTRUMENTAL: C  G  D  Am  D  G  D  Am  Em  Am  C

FINAL VERSE/CHORUS:
G                 G/D             C/E             D/F#
Please forgive me and forget it.  I was wrong and I admit it.
G            G/D           C/E             D/F#
Why can't we talk it over, why can't we forget about,
   D                   G       D                      Am
forget about the past.  A heart needs a second chance.
     C                       G       D                      Am
When love makes a sound babe, a heart needs a second chance.
     C                   G
Don't put me down babe.  Since you've been gone, 
    D                 Am                    Em
I've been in a trance.  This heart needs a second chance.
Am                     C                      G
Don't say it's over, I just can't say goodbye.

REPEAT AND FADE: (lead-in: D)
G      D                 Am         C
A heart needs a second chance.  When love makes a sound babe.

(The original song is written in Bb-major so there are a bunch of hard to 
play Bb's and Eb's with funky bass notes.  I transcribed this version for 
ease of play and singing.)
