Verse #1:

A             E7                    A
Left alone to cry while he goes out singing
A                 E7                       A
And she don't see why a wedding bell ain't ringing


(play main rhythm fig. X2)


Verse #2:

A               E7                         A
Left alone to cry while he goes out rocking
A                 E7                   A
And she can't see why it ain't her he's socking

A             E7                          A
Left alone to cry, life don't seem worth living
A                 E7                         A
It's time to say goodbye, you've done enough forgiving

-------------------------------------------------------

PERFORMANCE NOTES:

The main rhythm figure ends abruptly just before the switch
to the harmony vocals section. Listen to the recording to hear
exactly where you should stop.

In the tab for the lead guitar during the harmony section,
the bottom notes are optional. You can play them to add a fuller
sound to the guitar part. Listen to the recording to hear where
these bottom notes would sound best added in.
