CAPO: 2nd fret INTRO: G F G F G If you could read my mind love F What a tale my thoughts could tell G Just like an old time movie F 'bout a ghost from a wishin' well G G7 C In a castle dark or a fortress strong D Em With chains upon my feet C G You know that ghost is me C G/B And I will never be set free Am7 D G As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see G F If I could read your mind, love, What a tale your thoughts could tell. Just like a paperback novel, The kind the drugstores sell. Then you reached the part where the heartaches come, The hero would be me. But heroes often fail, And you won't read that book again Because the ending's just too hard to take! G F G F G G7 C I'd walk away like a movie star D Em Who gets burned in a three way script. C G Enter number two: C G/B A movie queen to play the scene Am7 D Em Of bringing all the good things out in me. C G But for now, love, let's be real; C G/B I never thought I could feel this way Am7 D And I'm about say that I just don't get it. C G/B I don't know where we went wrong, Am7 D G But the feelings gone and I just can't get it back! G F If you could read my mind, love, What a tale my thoughts could tell. 'bout a ghost from a wishing well. In a castle dark or a fortress strong. With chains upon my feet. But stories always end, And if you read between the lines, You'd find that I'm just tryin' to understand The feelings that you lack. C G/B I never thought I could feel this way Am7 D And I'm about say that I just don't get it. C G/B I don't know where we went wrong, Am7 D G But the feelings gone and I just can't get it back!
