                   "Standing In The Shadows Of Love"
                      (Holland - Dozier - Holland)

Chorus 1:

        Bbm                       Bbm/Ab
        Standing in the shadows of love
                    Gbmaj7                     F7sus4  F7
        I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come, can't you see me
         Bbm                      Bbm/Ab
        Standing in the shadows of love
                    Gbmaj7                     F7sus4  F7
        I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come

Verse 1:

                  Gb                Abm7     Db
        I want to run but there's nowhere to go
                Gb                   Abm7    Db
        'Cause heartaches will follow me, I know
                      Gb          Abm7 Db
        Without your love, the love I need
                  Gb                 Abm7 Db
        It's the beginning of the end for me

        Ebsus4              Ebm
        'Cause you've taken away all my reasons for living
                  Bb                                 Cbdim
        When you pushed aside all the love I've been giving

         Bbm [N.C.; congas continue]
        Didn't I treat you right now, baby, didn't I?
        Didn't I do the best I could, now, didn't I?
        So don't you leave me

Chorus 2:

        Standing in the shadows of love
        I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come, don't you see me
        Standing in the shadows of love
        Tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come

Verse 2:

        All alone my destiny
        With misery   my only company
        It may come today, it might come tomorrow
        But it's for sure I ain't got nothing but sorrow

        Now don't your conscience try to bother you?
        How can you watch me cry after all I've done for you?
        Now hold on a minute

        Gave you all the love I had, now, didn't I?
        When you needed me I was always there, now, wasn't I?

Verse 3:

        (Standing in the shadows of love)
        (Gettin' ready for the heartaches to come)
        I'm tryin' not to cry out loud
        You know cryin', it ain't gonna help me now

        What did I do to cause all this grief
        Now what did I say to make you want to leave
        Now wait a minute

        Gave my heart and soul to you, now didn't I?
        And didn't I always treat you good, now, didn't I?

Chorus 3:

        I'm standing in the shadows of love
        I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come, don't you see me
        Standing in the shadows of love
        Tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come, oh, I'm

Coda:

        Bbm                       Bbm/Ab
        Standing in the shadows of love [fade]
