G                      G              C  
I found her diary underneath the tree and started reading about me
G                      G              C  
The words she'd written took me by surprise; you'd never read them in
her eyes.
E             G                 D7         B7     Em  G7
She said that she had found the love she'd waited for
C            G        C            G
Wouldn't you know it? She wouldn't show it


G                             G              C  
Then she, confronted with the writing there, simply pretended not to care
G                          G            C  
I passed it off as just in keeping with her total disconcerting air.
E              G                 D7        B7    Em  G7
And though she tried to hide the love that she denied
C            G        C            G
Wouldn't you know it? She wouldn't show it.


D7  B7    Em   G7         C
    And as I go through my life
    Am7    D7              G
    I will give to her, my wife
            C                  B7sus4
    All the sweet things I can find.


G                      G               C  
I found her diary underneath the tree  and started reading about me
G                              G              C  
The words began to stick, then tears to fall. Her meaning now was clear
to see
E              G              D7      B7        Em  G7
The love she'd waited for was someone else, not me.
C            G        C            G
Wouldn't you know it? She wouldn't show it.


D7  B7    Em   G7         C
    And as I go through my life
    Am7    D7              G
    I will wish for her, his wife
            C                    G
    All the sweet things she can find
            C            D       G
    All the sweet things she can find.
