1.      Behind the bar I see some crazy things,

Em

    I watch those disappearing wedding rings.

        F

    A telephone call, pagin' so and so,

Em

    there he is shakin' his head, no.

                 E                                  Am

    'Cause he's got this girl hangin' all over him,

           E                                    Am

    he can't quit now, he's gone out on a limb.

                      D

    Then the place turns quiet as a mummy's tomb,

                 G                                  G7

    cause guess who happens to walk in the room ?

 

                                    Am                                                Em

You could've heard a heart break, you could've heard a tear drop,

                            F                                                Dm    - G

I feel so bad for her sake, now what's she gonna do ?

                                Am                                     Em

The chances that a fool takes never knowin' when to stop.

                                            F              - G                           Am 

Oh, you could've heard a heart break,       breakin' right in two.

2.     She walks on over, tears in her eyes,

Em

    she knows she's gonna hear a pack of lies.

             F

    The silence is deafening, all eyes are on her.

Em

    What will she say to that innocent girl ?

             E                                            Am

    Her hands start shakin' 'cause the words don't come,

      E                                      Am

    she's in shock, her whole body is numb.

 

 

 

 

 

 

      D

    Everyone there is holdin' their breath,

                   G                                   G7

    with the slightest whisper, we'll know what she says.

 

                                    Am                                                Em

You could've heard a heart break, you could've heard a tear drop,

                            F                                                Dm    - G

I feel so bad for her sake, now what's she gonna do ?

                                Am                                     Em

The chances that a fool takes never knowin' when to stop.

                                            F              - G                           Am   - G - F

Oh, you could've heard a heart break,       breakin' right in two.

 

+  CHORUS

 

              G                        Am

+  You could've heard a heart break !
