Intro: Ebm  Ebsus4, Ebm  Ebsus4  Ebm - x5 -

Verse 1:
       Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew,
           Bb                Ab
'Bout your plans to make me blue.
                Ebm      Ebsus4   Ebm
With some other guy you knew be-fore,
                  Bb                Ab
Between two of us guys, you know I loved you more.

Bridge 1:
Ab                  Cm            Ab
 It took me by sur-prise, I must say,
       Ebm               Ab
When I found out yester-day. Don't you know that:

Chorus 1:
  Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
I heard it through the grape-vine;
         Bb                         Ab
Not much longer, would you be mine.
      Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        Bb                     Ab                   Ebm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.

Break:
   Ebm
- I heard it through the grapevine,
                          Ebsus4 Ebm       Ebsus4  Ebm, Ebsus4, Ebm
Not much longer would you be    my baby -.

Verse 2:
         Ebm            Ebsus4    Ebm
I know a man ain't sup-posed to cry,
          Bb                      Ab
But these tears, I can't hold in-side.
       Ebm                Ebsus4     Ebm
Losing you, would end my life, you see,
         Bb                 Ab
'Cos you mean that much to me.

Bridge 2:
Ab               Cm           Ab
 You could have told me your-self,
         Ebm            Ab
That you loved someone else.

Chorus 2:
           Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
Instead, I heard it through the grape-vine;
         Ab
Not much longer would you be mine.
      Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        Bb                     Ab                   Ebm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.

Break:
   Ebm
- I heard it through the grapevine,
                          Ebsus4 Ebm       Ebsus4  Ebm, Ebsus4, Ebm
Not much longer would you be    my baby -.

Interlude: Ebm  Ebsus4, Ebm  Ebsus4  Ebm - x5 -

Verse 3:
Ebm
 People say; believe half of what you see,
         Bb                Ab
Son, and none of what you hear.
            Ebm
But I can't help, but be con-fused,
        Bb                     Ab
If it's true, please tell me, dear.

Bridge 3:
       Cm             Ab
Do you plan to let me go,
              Ebm               Ab 
For the other guy you loved be-fore?

Chorus 3:
  Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
I heard it through the grape-vine;
         Bb                         Ab
Not much longer, would you be mine.
      Ebm                   Ebsus4 Ebm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        Bb                     Ab                   Ebm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.

Break:
   Ebm
- I heard it through the grapevine,
                          Ebsus4 Ebm       Ebsus4  Ebm, Ebsus4, Ebm
Not much longer would you be    my baby -.
