I told you so    (video)    (clip)    (midi)

 

            G                                                 Bm

2. Suppose I called you up tonight, and told you that I loved you,

            C                                      D                G

    and suppose I said, "I wanna come back home."

                   C                                             G        D               Em      - Bm

    And suppose I cried and said, "I think I finally learned my lesson,

                  A                        A7                 D     - D7

    and I'm tired of spending all my time alone.

 

          G                                          Bm

2. If I told you that I realized you're all I ever wanted,

                 C                  D                G

    and it's killing me to be so far away,

                   C

    would you tell me that you loved me, too,

              G            D      Em     - Bm

    and would we cry together?

            A                        A7                      D

    or would you simply laugh at me and say :

 

    G                       Bm         C 

I told you so, oh, I told you so,

  Am                                                                   D

I told you someday you would come crawling back

                                           G   - D

and asking me to take you in.

  G                              Bm      C

I told you so, but you had to go,

          Am

now I found somebody new

                      D                                            G

and you will never break my heart in two again.

 

+  C - D

 

           G                                                  Bm

3. If I got down on my knees and told you I was yours forever,

                      C                             D                         G

    would you get down on yours, too, and take my hand ?

                      C

    Would we get that old-time feeling,

                      G             D          Em      - Bm

    would we laugh and talk for hours

             A                        A7                     D

    the way we did when our love first began ?

 

                       G

4. Would you tell me that you've missed me, too ,

            Bm

    and that you've been so lonely,

                          C                  D               G

    and you've waited for the day that I returned

                    C

    And we'd live and love forever

                   G            D         Em   - Bm

    and that I'm your one and only,

            A                        A7                 D         - D7

    or would you say the table’s finally turned ?

 

    Would you say ....

 

+  CHORUS

 

               Am

+  Now I found somebody new,

                          D                                            G       - C - G     - D - G

    and you will never break my heart in two again."
