If you could read my mind  Gordon Lightfoot



[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 [D]fortress strong with [E]chains upon my [F#m]feet.
You [D]know that ghost is [A]me.
And [D]I will never [A/C#]be set free as [Bm]long as I'm a [E]ghost that you can't [A]see.
[A]If I could read your mind love, [G]what a tale your thoughts could tell.
[A]Just like a paper-back novel, [G]the kind that drugstores sell.
[A]When you reach the part where the [D]heartaches come the [E]hero won't be [F#m]me.
[D]heroes often [A]fail....
[D]You won't read that [A/C#]book again be[Bm]cause the end is [E]just too hard to [A]take.
A - G - A - G

[A]I walk away, like a [D]movie star who gets [E]burned in a three-way [F#m]script...
[D]Enter, number [A]two....
A [D]movie queen to [A/C#]play the scene of [Bm]bringin' all the [E]good things out in [A]me.
But for [D]now love, let's be [A]real....
I [D]never thought I could [A/C#]act this way and I've [Bm]got to say that I [E]just don't
get it.
[D]I don't know where [A/C#]we went wrong but the [Bm]feelings gone and I [E]just can't get
it [A]back.
[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 [D]fortress strong with [E]chains upon my [F#m]feet.
The [D]story always [A]ends....
And [D]if you read bet[A/C#]ween the lines you'll [Bm]know that I'm just [E]trying to
under[A]stand.
The [D]feelings that you [A]lack....
I [D]never knew I could [A/C#]feel this way and I've [Bm]got to say that I [E]just don't
get it.
[D]I don't know where [A/C#]we went wrong but the [Bm]feelings gone and I [E]just can't get
it [A]back.

A - G - A
