    E7 - - -

 

      - - - - - - - - -  A                E              - E7

1. Today I got a letter from someone,

E                              E7                       A

    just a friend we knew some time ago.

                    A                         A7    - D

    And as I read between the lines         I began to realize,

          B7                                 E                       E7

    he didn't know I lost you a long long time ago.

 

          A                  A7              E         - E7

2. Oh, I just can't make it any longer,

E                              E7            A      - A7

    everything I do is always wrong.

           A        A7 - D

    I'm livin' a lie          and there's no need in tryin'

                   A                       E           A

    to keep hanging on after all the good is gone.

 

 

3.  instrumental = verse 2, lines 1 & 2

 

                  A                      A7  - D

    Lord, I wish that I could die          and there's no use in tryin',

                   A                      E          A                  - D - E - A

    to keep hangin' on after all the good is gone.
