Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Capo 2nd Fret

It's a pretty simple song as long as you listen for the rhythm.

There is on small riff between every transition from G to Em.  Simply walk down 
3-2-0 on the E string.  



Open on the Chorus:


G          Em          C                    G
I would be sad because you left me all alone.
G          Em          C                        G
I would be sad because the lies that you had told.
G          Em           C              D
I would be sad because I got left by a girl that I adore.
G          Em           C                   G
I would be sad because the love I had before.


Verse 1:

G                                Em                          C 
I meant what I said when I said I would settle down with you although I know 
                         D           
it's not something that you were asking me to do. 
G                                    Em                              C
And I know we are young but we won't always be, so marry me;  lets not be 
                       D
that predictable young couple changing, moving on. 
G                                   Em
But I can tell by watching you that theres no chance of pushing through. 
    C                                D
The odds are so against us; you know most young love it ends like this.


Chorus:

G          Em          C                    G
I would be sad because you left me all alone.
G          Em          C                        G
I would be sad because the lies that you had told.
G          Em           C              D
I would be sad because I got left by a girl that I adore.
G          Em           C                   G
I would be sad because the love I had before.


Verse 2:

G                               Bm      C            D
I meant what I said when I said I would rearrange my plans and 
            G
change for you.
G                                 Em
You know me; I've always been the kind with easy confidence. 
C                          D                                G
Confident enough to honestly beleive that nothing out there stopping me 
                Em
especially not someone who's not loving me.
C                                  D
Now listen here I told you I could live on with out loving you. 
C                                 D
I was bluffing then, but it seems that just might have been the truth.
G                                       Em
Well my dad told me, "One day son, this girl will think of what she's done 
    C                                D
and hurting you will be the first of many more regrets to come." 

G                                       Em
And he said, "If she doesn't call, then it's her fault and it's her loss."
   C                                   D
I say, "It's not that simple see, but then again it just may be."


Chorus/Ending:

G          Em          C                    G
I would be sad because you left me all alone.
G          Em          C                        G
I would be sad because the lies that you had told.
G          Em           C              D
I would be sad because I got left by a girl that I adore.
G          Em           C                   G
I would be sad because the love I had before.
G          Em           C                   G
I would be sad because the love I had before.
