Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I won't even lie, I had a little help from a friend on this one, especially on the solo! 
to the song for timing. Play with it, this was recorded with 3 guitars, I only 
the chords for an acoustic version, and the solo in case you are playing with someone.

Intro - E9(no3)

-Verse 1-

Dsus2                  Asus2          E
       We hear you're leaving that's okay
Dsus2                    Asus2                   E    
  B
       I thought our little wild time had just begun
Dsus2                       Asus2                      E
       I guess you kind of scared yourself you turn and run
F#m7                      Asus2                      B7#9
       But if you have a change of heart ...

-Chorus-

E9(no3)
Rikki don't lost that number
                 G
You don't wanna call nobody else
A                   G                   D
  Send it off   in a letter      to yourself
C
Rikki don't lose that number
         Em
Its the only one you own
           C                 Asus2
You might use it if you feel better
             E9(no3)
When you get home

-Verse 2- (same chord patter as Verse 1)

I have a friends in town  he's heard your name
We can go out driving on Slow Hand Row
We could stay inside and play games I don't know
And you could have a change of heart

-Chorus-
