Operator chords - Jim Croce

G    Bm                   Am7     C          G
 Operator, well could you help me place this call
Am7                        D                   Em     D
 You see the number on the matchbook is old an faded
G                    Bm          Am7      C         G
 She's living in L.A,    With my best old ex friend Ray
Am7                 D                       Em    D 
 A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

G               C               G                    C       D
 Isn't that the way they say it goes,   But let's forget all that
    G                     Am
And give me the number if you can find it
   C D   Em           Bm            D           Am7
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
D                  C                               G
 I've overcome the blow,   I've learned to take it well
               Am7                          C                       D
I only wish my words could just convince myself that it just wasn't real
    C                           G       Bm                Am7 D                      G
But that's not the way it feels (2nd time No, no, no, no,      that's not the way it feels)

G    Bm                   Am7     C          G
 Operator, well could you help me place this call
Am7                     D                    Em      D
 Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me
G                         Bm                 Am7     C     G
 There's something in my eyes,   You know it happens every time
Am7                D                         Em      D 
 I think about the love that I thought would save me


G   Bm                   Am7  C         G
 Operator, well let's forget about this call
Am7                     D                   Em      D
 There's no one there,   I really wanted to talk to
G                   Bm                        Am7     C         G
 Thank you for your time,   Cause you've been so much more than kind
Am7               D     Em  D 
 You can keep the dime
