Shes acting single (Im drinking doubles)    (video)    (wiki)

 

D - A - D (2x)

D G A D G D

1. Ive seen men look at her before and they think I dont see,

D G A D E A

Id like to think it makes me proud but Im only foolin me.

D G A D G D

Ill know shed be lookin back the minute Im not there,

D G A Bm

while she pours herself off some stranger,

G A D

Ill pour myself a drink somewhere.

G D

Shes acting single, Im drinkin doubles,

Em - G D

I hide my pain, I drown my troubles.

G D

My heart is breaking like the tiny bubbles,

Em - G D

shes acting single, Im drinkin doubles.

(orig. moves up half a note to capo 4th here)

 

D G A D G D

2. I know what she plans to do, but I dont know where or when,

D G A D - E A

if I ask who that stranger was, shell just say, an old friend.

D G A D - G D

Im not weak, I tell myself, I stay, because Im strong,

D G A Bm G A D

but truth is Im not man enough to stop her from doing me wrong.

+ CHORUS ...
