Verse:
F       A7          Dm
Dear, I wrote you a song.
  G                  C      C7
Despite the fact you did me wrong.
    F     A7
And dear, I don't know
Dm                             G
what the hell is going on with you
                    C     C7
but something ain't right.

Chorus:
    F 
You tell me that you love me,
A7
then you go and leave me.
Dm                    Dm7
Why you do this to me baby?
    Gm7  C    C7
I'm lovesick,
  F
I just can't sleep,
A7
just can't eat,
Dm               Dm7         Gm7
can't do much of anything at all.
           C           C7             F
'Cause I'm sick and in love with you, dear.

  1. silversaturns

    ^^^ correct

  2. At the end the chorus should be played twice but the second verse had a modulation(changes key)
    So this needs to be changed.

  3. Change Gm7 to G7…I think it is so much easier and it sounds much better

  4. Just.. by the way… the song goes “I just can’t EAT, just can’t SLEEP” You just mixed up the words. And at the end the chorus is played twice.

  5. Loved it! Keep posting NeverShoutNever songs, please! Thank you very much!
