If You Could Read My Mind  Johnny Cash





















[A]If you could read my mind, love
[G]What a tale my thoughts could tell
[A]Just like an old time movie
[G]'bout a ghost from a wishing-well
[A]In a castle dark or a fo[D]rtress strong
[E]With chains upon my [F#m]feet
You [D]know that ghost is m[A]e
An[D]d I will never[F#m] be set free
As [Bm7]long as I'm a g[E]host you can't [A]see


(Verse 2)
[A]If I could read your mind, love
[G]What a tale your thoughts could tell
[A]Just like a paperback novel
[G]The kind that drugstores sell
[A]When you reach the part where the h[D]eartaches come
The [E]hero would be m[F#m]e
An[D]d heroes often f[A]ail
[A]And you won't read that [F#m]book again
[Bm7]Because the ending's jus[E]t too hard to ta[A]ke


(Middle section)

[A]   [G]   [A]   [G]                          
[A]I'd walk away like a mov[D]ie star
Who gets b[F#m]urned in a three way s[D]cript
And [E]enter number [A]two
A [D]movie queen to p[F#m]lay the scene
[Bm7]Of bringing all the[E] good things out in m[A]e
    [D]                    [A]            
But for now, love, let's be real
I [D]never thought I could ac[F#m]t this way
And I've[Bm7] got to say that I just [E]don't get it
I [D]don't know where [F#m]we went wrong
But the [Bm7]feeling's gone
And I ju[E]st can't get it ba[A]ck


[A](Ve[G]rse[A] 3.[G]..)
[A]If you could read my mind, love,
[G]What a tale my thoughts could tell
[A]Just like an old time movie
[G]'bout a ghost from a wishing-well
[A]In a castle dark or a fo[D]rtress strong
[E]With chains upon my[F#m] feet
The [D]story always [A]ends

An[D]d if you read bet[F#m]ween the lines
You�ll k[Bm7]now that I�m just t[E]rying to unde[A]rstand
The[D] feeling that you [A]lack
I [D]never thought I could fee[F#m]l this way
And I've [Bm7]got to say that I j[E]ust don't get it
I[D] don't know where w[F#m]e went wrong
But the [Bm7]feeling's gone
And I ju[E]st can't get it back

A G end on A
