Capo 3

           C
Well, I no longer can recall
       F                       C
All the times you made me crawl
                          F               G   G7
All the times you made me hang my head and cry
    C
But still the teardrops fall
F                        C
And lord what's worst of all
G                                 F       C
I just ain't got the nerve to say goodbye

    F
I'm waitin' for the day
          C
When I can hide my love away
                            F        G    G7
And stand up like a man so tall and free
            F
Then you'll be the one to say
   C      C/B         Am
Oh darlin', can't you stay
G                               F               C
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

     C
Oh girl, I don't know why
     F             C
You always have to try
                     F          G   G7
To hurt me to make me feel ashamed
        C
Oh, but someday by and by
             F             C
You're gonna be the one to cry
G                                  F      C
And walk the floor and sadly call my name


    F
I'm waitin' for the day
          C
When I can hide my love away
                            F        G    G7
And stand up like a man so tall and free
            F
Then you'll be the one to say
   C      C/B         Am
Oh darlin', can't you stay
G                                    F          C
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

           C
Oh, but it looks like until then
     F                   C
I'll throw pride to the wind
                            F        G    G7
And try to make believe that I don't know
       C
That a day is comin' when
         F              C
You won't do me wrong again
G                            F       C
And I will be the one to turn and go

    F
I'm waitin' for the day
          C
When I can hide my love away
                            F        G    G7
And stand up like a man so tall and free
            F
Then you'll be the one to say
   C      C/B         Am
Oh darlin', can't you stay
G                                     F          C
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

G                                     F          C
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me
