and drawn out vocals, it reached #121 on Billboard in 1966.

Intro chords: C / F / G / F x2
	C		 F
Some things are best not spoken
     G                        F
Some things are better left unsaid
    C             F              G
But since this is your public execution
   F                      G
I think Iíll go right on ahead

    C                    F
The mailman brought your letter, babe
          G               F
Where you told me how you feel
        C                 F
And the things he said he told you
     G             F
That is Iím such a heel
C                F
I could never be honest
       G               F
And to you Iíve always lied
     C                F
They saw me take some other hide
      F                G
For a two-wheeled pony ride----


F                       G
You at least might have asked me
        F                        G
If the scene was really what it seemed
           C           F       G
But like a queen ruled by her jester
     F                G
Your conclusion was a scheme

You said I disappointed you
Whereby all the things I done
That you had convinced yourself
I was the only one
Really make you happy
Satisfy your soul
Now you say Iíve failed
Since we split up all my gold---



Have you ever seen the truth before
Have you ever even made a try
Such I thing for you so impossible
With them themes all in your eyes

Whoa, I laughed when you said you had
One chance to really put me down
And how you loved to smear my name
All over my own town
Said some Mouse made a fool of you
And said donít waste a dime
Your phone is out of order now, babe,
For me you got no time----



If this is really what your thinkiní
That itís really, really all my fault
Then you better find yourself a welder, baby
                                G        G#
Cause you got locked up in your vault---

[All chords modulate up Ĺ step]

Yeah, you got your point put over now
It seems youíve found a match
Burn the bridge behind you, babe
Slam your door, throw the latch
I know just how your hurtiní
From your feelings as they burn
Iíd like to say Iím sorry
But itís no longer my concern---

[Riff up Ĺ step from riff fig.]

So goodbye
Go on and have a real good cry
I've found me a brand new high
She just loves a two-wheel pony ride
You better get yourself a welder, babe
Go on, get out of here...
