                               G                                             A

1. I never saw the end in sight, fools are kind of blind,

                                             D                                                       G     - D

    thought everything was going alright, but I was running out of time.

                                       G                                                  A

    'Cause you had one foot out the door, I swear I didn't see,

                                   C                 D                                           G

    but if you're really going away here's some final words from me :

 

                           G

Baby, write this down, take a little note,

          A

to remind you in case you didn't know,

                      C                                                  D                   G      - D

tell yourself I love you and I don't want you to go, write this down !

                 G

Take my words and read 'em everyday,

                          A

keep 'em close by, don't you let 'em fade away,

                     C                                   D                    G

so you'll remember what I forgot to say, write this down !

 

+  G - A - D - G - D

 

                               G                                                     A

2. I'll sign it at the bottom of the page, I'll swear under oath,

                                       D                                                       G   - D

    'cause every single word is true and I think you need to know.

                              G                                       A

    So use it as a bookmark, stick it on your 'frigerator door,

                        C                                            D

    hang it in a picture frame up above the mantle,

                                         G

    where you'll see it for sure :

 

+  CHORUS

 

   Bm                                   - D

+       You can find a chisel,        I can find a stone,

C                                                        - D

    folks will be reading these words,         long after we're gone !

 

 

 

 

 

                           G

          A

to remind you in case you didn't know,

                      C                                                  D                   G      - D
