Almost Goodbye  Mark Chesnutt

ALMOST GOODBYE - Mark Chesnutt

To play with the recording, Capo 1st fret
[Bm]There was rain on the street [A]last night
[G]We stood beneath the front door light
[Bm]And everything we said w[A]e made sure the neig[G]hbors heard
[Bm]You called me this, I call[A]ed you that
[G]Standing on the welcome mat
[Bm]Everything we felt[A] it all came down to[G] just one word[G] [G/F#]
[Em]But you couldn't say it and I couldn't say it
CHORUS: You know[D] I tr[A]ied my best [G]to go
[D]I [A]know you cried [G]'cause I hurt y[G]ou so[G/F#]
[Em]It should have been easy to say that [D]we were through
But to wa[Em]lk away from love was more than we[A] could do
It was alm[G]ost [A]goodbye[Bm]
[G]Almos[A]t goodbye[Bm]
[(Bm)] [A] [G]  
[Bm]Now there was sun through the blinds this m[A]orning
[G]When I opened up my eyes
[Bm]Outside I could hear[A] a mockingbird[G]
[Bm]And I could feel your heartbeat as[A] you layed there b[G]y my side
[Bm] [A] [G] 
[G]I t[G/F#]hought of how the world could end with just one word
[Em]But you didn't say it, and I didn't say it
SOLO: (Bm) A G Bm A G
[Em]Sometimes the most important words are the[A] ones that you leave unspoken
[E]You k[B]now I tri[A]ed my best to go
And I [E]kn[B]ow you cried[A] 'cause I hurt you so[A] [A/G#]
[F#m]It should have been easy to say that [E]we were through
But to wa[F#m]lk away from love that way was more than we co[B]uld do
It was al[E]mos[B]t goodbye[A]
[E]Almo[B]st goodbye, no[A], I couldn't say it was
[E]Almo[B]st goodbye, oh[A] oh
[E]Almo[B]st goodbye [A] (fade)
