Verse:
G                        C
  We're caught in a trap;  I can't walk out
D               C               G
  because I love you too much,  baby.
G                    C
  Why can't you see,   what you're doing to me,
D                      C          D     C  Bm  D7
  when you don't believe a word I say?

Chorus:
C                G        Bm                  C    D
   We can't go on together, with Suspicious Minds;
Em                  Bm          C              D       D7
   and we can't build our dreams, on Suspicious Minds.

Verse:
G                              C
  So, if an old friend I know, drops by to say hello,
D                 C           G
  would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
G                  C
  Here we go again, asking where I've been.
D                       C               D      C  Bm  D7
  You can see these tears are real I'm crying.

Chorus:
C                G        Bm                  C
   We can't go on together, with Suspicious Minds;
Em                  Bm           C              B7sus4   B7
   and we can't build our dreams, on Suspicious Minds...

Bridge:
Em             Bm            C
   Oh, let our love survive,
                D
   I'll dry the tears from your eyes.
Em                   Bm             C
   Let's don't let a good thing die,  when honey,
      D                G               C    G       D7
   you know I've never,  lied to you;   Mmm,  yeah,  yeah!

Verse:
G                        C
  We're caught in a trap;  I can't walk out
D               C               G
  because I love you too much,  baby.
G                    C
  Why can't you see,   what you're doing to me,
D                      C          D     C  Bm  D7 - fade -
  when you don't believe a word I say?

  1. +5 is a little easier than -2 if you struggle with playing a Bb.

  2. B7 and B7sus4 are not needed to play this song. Its easier at +5 in the key of “C”. There are two rytham patterns in this song and a iconic picking pattern. Except for the bride which is in 6/8 the song is in 4/4 time.

  3. jobdavies

    Minus 2 works well for some easier chords :-)
