C                            G         Fadd G-->F->Fmaj7->F
It was only last June when her old man ran away

C                              G                Fadd G->F->Fmaj7->F

C                         G            Fadd G->F->Fmaj7->F
It was ten thirty five on a lonely Friday night

C                          G                   Fadd G->F->Fmaj7->F
She was standin' by the bar  hmm,  she was lookin' alright

C5                        G5                    F5
I asked her if she wanted 2 dance and she said that all she wanted

                            C5      G5             F5
was a good man and wanted 2 know if I thought I was qualified

           C/F     G/D       Fadd G->F->Fmaj7->F
And I said baby don't waste your time

C/F         G/D     Fadd G->F->Fmaj7->F
I know what's on your mind

F           Fmin     Emin7    D7
I may be qualified for a one night stand

            Dmin7        Gmin7
But I could never take the place of your man

F-->E-->D--->C-->D--->E-->D--->C-->C   Straight out of a Cmaj Scale

C                        G                       Fadd G->F->Fmaj 7->F

C                         G              Fadd G->F->Fmaj 7->F
He was all she ever had and now she wanted 2 die

C                           G              Fadd G->F->Fmaj 7->F
He left her with a baby and another one on the way

    C                          G                F
She couldn't stop cryin' cuz she knew he was gone 2 stay

C5                              G5
She ask me if we could be friends and I said

A very basic simple way to play this song.

I COULD NEVER TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUR MAN - PRINCE


       C                       G            F
It was only last June when her old man ran away

    C                               G                   F
She couldn't stop cryin' `cause she knew he was gone to stay

       C          G             F
It was 10:35 on a lonely Friday night
C                    G                      F
She was standin' by the bar, Hmm, she was lookin' alright

  C                          G                       F
I asked her if she wanted to dance and she said that all she wanted was a good man

              C         G                  F
and wanted to know if I thought I was qualified

            F          C          F
And I said, baby don't waste your time

F             C       F
I know what's on your mind

  F           C        G         D
I may be qualified 4 a one night stand

            F              G
But I could never take the place of your man

C       G       F

C       G       F

   C                       G                         F
It hurt me so bad when she told me with tears in her eyes

       C                    G                F
He was all she ever had and now she wanted 2 die

He left her with a baby and another one on the way

    C                              G                  F
She couldn't stop cryin' cause she knew he was gone 2 stay

    C                       G                      F
She asked me if we could be friends, and I said oh honey baby that's a dead end

             C            G                F
U know and I know that we wouldn't be satisfied

            F          C          F
And I said, baby don't waste your time

F             C       F
I know what's on your mind
