Where Were You When I Needed You

Grass Roots

Verse 1:
        Don't bother cryin', don't bother crawlin'
        It's all over now, no use in stallin'
        The love I once felt, I don't feel anymore for you
        This time I'll even open the door for you
        You walked out when I was down
        Well now I'm well off
        And look who's comin' round
        Where were you when I needed you
        Where were you when I wanted you
        Where were you when I needed you
CaddD G/B G/A G (as per intro)
Verse 2:
You're lookin' good, it's hard to fight it
But no use explainin', I've already decided
That livin' with you, it's worse than without you
I won't spend a lifetime a-worryin' about you
Oh, things got rough and you disappeared
Now I'm back on my feet
But look, look who's standing there
(repeat chorus)
Harpsichord solo:
                                                                          Verse 3:
Oh, you were so young, and you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's innocent child
That first day I saw you, you really got to me
I thought I could change you, what good did it do me
Oh, things got rough and you wouldn't wait
Now you're tripping back
But babe, it's too late
(repeat chorus to fade)
