Intro: G Am7 G Am7/9 A9 Am7 Fdim D7 

G  Am7   G  Am7/9 A9    Am7  Fdim D7 
I could have told you, she'd hurt you 
 D9    G9   G    D7/9/F#  G/F# D9  B7   Em 
She'd love you a  while,  then   desert you 
   C   C/B     Am7   Am7/G  D9           Am7  Cdim G 
If on - ly you asked,       I could have told you  so 
G  Am7   G   Am7/9 A9  Am7 Fdim   D7 
I could have saved you some  crying 
D9  G9  G       D7/9/F#  G/F# D9   B7   Em 
Yes I could have told    you she's  lying 
     C   C/B    Am7  Am7/G     D9     Fdim     E7 
But you were in love       and didn't want to know
 
Bridge 
Bm5-/7 E7/9- Fdim  C  C/B      Am7     Cdim     D7/9     G

Bm5-/7 E7/9- Fdim  C  C/B     Am7     Cdim  D9    Am7 Cdim G B7 Em7 
I   hear her  now,    making promises  she'll never    keep 
G   Am7   G  Am7/9 A9  Am7 Fdim D7 
And soon it's  over and done with 
  D9   G9    G     D7/9/F#  G/F#  D9  B7   Em 
She'll find someone  new     to  have fun with 
Em7      C  C7M C7M/9 Cdim  C  C/B       Am7 Cdim G 
Through all of    my tears, I could have told you so
