Transcribed by NickDaBeast


This is the way that I play Prince's little-known gem, "When You Were Mine." I hope the 
are correct and my "arrangement" (if you could call it that) serves a purpose. Sing 
and enjoy....

Key: E

CHORDS USED - E: 022100 A: X02220 Asus2: X02200 B: 
C#m: X46654 G#m: 466444

Make up your own strumming rhythm, just make sure you put some feeling into it. All 
are switched after one bar and the tempo is Q=148bpm or something around there. Have fun,

Intro: E B A B x2

VERSES 1-3:
E             B      A
When you were mine
           B
I gave you all of my money
E          B      A
Time after time
          B
U done me wrong
E                  B      A
It was just like a dream
             B
U let all my friends come over and meet
E         B          A
U were so strange
                  B
U didn't have the decency to change the sheets

E            B              A
Oh girl when you were mine
          B
I used to let U wear all my clothes
E         B               A
U were so fine (so fine)
                 B
Maybe that's the reason that it hurt me so

PRE-CHORUS:
Asus2   B
I know (I know)
                   E            Asus2
That ur going with another guy
              B
I don't care (don't care)
                    E                 Asus2

ADDITIONAL LYRICS:

Verses 4-5

When you were mine
You were kinda, sorta my best friend
So I was blind (so blind)
I let you fool around

I never cared (didn't care)
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleeping in between the two of us


Verse 6

When you were mine
You were all I ever wanted to do
I spend my time
Following him whenever he's with you
