G     Bm                 C                  C - C/B - C/A - G
Ope  rator oh could you help me place this call          

Am                         [ch]Am/A#[/ch]                 Em  (to bass run on D chord) D D/C D/B D/A
You see the number on the matchbook is old and  faded                                    

G                Bm          C                   C - C/B - C/A - G
She's living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ray              

Am                  [ch]Am/A#[/ch]                   Em  (to bass run on D chord) D D/C D/B D/A
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated                                         

Chorus:
G               C               G
Isn't that the way they say it goes

              C        D
But lets for get all that

     G                    Am
And give me the number if you can find it

   C      Em           Bm                       Am
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine and to show

D7                 C                             G
I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well

                Am                         C
I only wish my words could just convince myself

                      D        C                      G
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels

G       Bm                 C                  C - C/B - C/A - G
Oper   ator oh could you help me place this call                

Am                      [ch]Am/A#[/ch]                    Em  (to bass run on D chord) D D/C D/B D/A
Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me                                      

G                       Bm                 C (to bass run) C - C/B - C/A - G
There's something in my eye, you know it happens every  time

Am                 [ch]Am/A#[/ch]                     Em  (to bass run on D chord) D D/C D/B D/A
I think about the love that I thought would save me                                      

CHORUS

G       Bm              C               C - C/B - C/A - G

Am                       [ch]Am/A#[/ch]           Em  (to bass run on D chord) D D/C D/B D/A
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to                                  

G                   Bm                     C    (to bass run) C - C/B - C/A - G

Am                [ch]Am/A#[/ch]        Em  (to bass run on D chord) D D/C D/B D/A
