Chorus: *Strumming*

[F]Rae [C]Dawn [G]Chong, baby won't you [F]hear [C]my [G]song?

I have loved you [F]for [C]so [G]long
And I [F]know that [G]I can [F]make you [G]love me [C]too.
*Instead of playing the C Chord at the end of the chorus, play the Intro x2*

Verse 2:

Same as verse 1 x4


Same pattern, just different lyrics.

Intro x2

Guitar bridge: *Strumming*

Am F C G x2

Part where he kills her:

It's all piano, but if you want something to do here, you could do the
verse picking x2, and strumming the G at the end


*Same as the others with different lyrics, with this at the end instead:*

And [F]all you [G]had to [F]do was [G]love me,

I g[F]ave you [G]every c[F]hance to [G]love me,
You s[F]tupid [G]bitch, you [F]should have [G]loved me [C]too.
*And once again, play the Intro instead of C at the end of the chorus.

Intro x4, strumming on the last C to end the song.


Verse 1

I used to think the perfect girl,
was only in my dreams.
Until I saw your perfect face,
upon the movie screen.

You seemed to know that I was there,
as though from God's design.
And as I cried I told myself,
someday you'd be mine.

1st Chorus

Rae Dawn Chong, baby won't you hear my song?
I have loved you for so long.
And I know that I can make you love me too.

Verse 2

I write you letters every day,
I send flowers to your home.
But it's difficult to prove my love,
when you won't answer the phone.

And looking through binoculars,
makes it really hard.
To see you from the camp,
that I've set up in your front yard.

Chorus 2

Rae Dawn Chong, why won't you hear my song?
What am I doing wrong?
Cause I can't seem to make you love me too.

Verse 3

And here inside my prison cell,
just lying in my bed.
I wonder if you loved me,
when I shot you in the head.

Chorus 3

Rae Dawn Chong, you only had to hear my song.
I even bought your dad a bong.
And all you had to do was love me.
I gave you every chance to love me.
You stupid bitch, you should have loved me too.

Rae Dawn....
