(Jim Croce)

	  		Intro: G Bm Am C Am G Bm Am C Am G  

   Bm                  C                  G    
Operator, oh could you help me place this call    
Am                        D                    Em    (D C Bm Am G)    
You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded    
                Bm            C                  G       
She's living in L.A., with my best old ex-friend Ray    
Am                 D                       Em    (D C Bm Am G)    
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated    
               C               G    
Isn't that the way they say it goes    
         C          D    
But lets forget all that    
    G                     Am         
And give me the number if you can find it    
   C Am  Em           Bm                       Am    
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine and to show    
D                 C                             G    
I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well    
               Am                           C    
I only wish my words, could just convince myself    
                    D         C                     G    
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels  

Instrumental: Bm Am C Am G  
   
   Bm                  C                  G     
Operator, oh could you help me place this call    
        Am             D                    Em     (D C Bm Am G)    
Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me    
                        Bm               C             G     
There's something in my eye, you know it happens every time    
Am                D                          Em      (D C Bm Am G)    
I think about the love, that I thought would save me  
               C               G    
Isn't that the way they say it goes    
         C          D    
But lets forget all that    
    G                     Am         
And give me the number if you can find it    
   C Am  Em           Bm                       Am    
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine and to show    
D                 C                             G    
I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well    
               Am                           C    
I only wish my words, could just convince myself    
                    D         C                     G    
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels  
C               G  C                     G  
No, no, no, no,    that's not the way it feels  
   Bm           C                 G      
Operator, let's forget about this call    
Am                    D                  Em      (D C Bm Am G)    
There's no one there, I really wanted to talk to    
                   Bm                      C                 G    
Thank you for your time, cause you've been so much more than kind    
Am               D    Em (D C Bm Am G)  
You can keep the dime  
               C               G    
Isn't that the way they say it goes    
         C          D    
But lets forget all that    
    G                     Am         
And give me the number if you can find it    
   C Am  Em           Bm                       Am    
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine and to show    
D                 C                             G    
I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well    
               Am                           C    
I only wish my words, could just convince myself    
                    D         C                     G    
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels  

Final: Bm Am C Am G Bm Am C Am G
