Note: the "organ" - actually Zal's Guild Thunderbird with the treble
rolled off - plays the following chords during the verses:

  111   111   111     111
xx765x xx777x xx432x xx645x
   G       C       E       D

The rhythm guitar plays G while the "organ" plays G to C (as denoted
by brackets).

Verse 1:

 CG     C
                    G                     
1: Did you ever have to make up your mind
3: Then you know you better make up your mind
 C
            G                         G       E
To pick up on one and leave the other behind
      G         D         C 
It's not often easy, and not often kind
         D                         G 
Did you ever have to make up your mind

Verse 2:

 2: Did you ever bave to finally decide
        
 4: Tben you bet you better finally decide
        
To say yes to one and let the other one ride
There's so many changes and tears you must hide
 4: to coda
        Did you ever have to finally decide 

Chorus 1:

                  E7
Sometimes there's one with big blue eyes, cute as a bunny
      A7
With hair down to here and plenty of money
     C             A7               G          E7
And just when you think she's that one in the world
      D7
Your heart gets stolen by some mousy little girl and...

 repeat verse 1
 

 guitar solo over verse cbords
 

Chorus 2:

Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her
And then you get distracted by her older sister
When in walks her father, and takes you in line
And says "better go home, son, and make up your mind"

 repeat verse 2
 

Coda:   (repeat last bar of intro)


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
