Because of You  Reba McEntire

 Intro: G-Bm-Em-D-G-Bm-Em-D-G

[G]I will not m[Bm]ake the same mis[Em]takes that you did[D]
[G]I will not l[Bm]et myself Ca[Em]use my heart so much misery[D]
[G]I will not b[Bm]reak the way you d[Em]id, You fell so har[D]d
[G]I've learned the h[Bm]ard way To n[Em]ever let it get that fa[D]r
Because of [Em]you, I never s[C]tray too far from the s[D]idewalk
Because of [Em]you, I learned to play on the s[C]afe side so I don't get h[D]urt
[B]Because of [Em]you, I find it hard to t[G]rust not only [D]me, but everyone ar[B]ound me
[Bm]Because of y[C]ou, I am af[D]raid
[G]I lose my w[Bm]ay and it's [Em]not too long before you p[D]oint it o[G]ut
I cannot [Bm]cry, be[Em]cause I know that's weakness [D]in your e[G]yes
I'm forced to f[Bm]ake a s[Em]mile, a laugh everyd[D]ay of my l[G]ife
My heart can't p[Bm]ossibly break, w[Em]hen it wasn't even whole to start w[D]ith
Repeat Chorus
I watched you [Bm]die, I heard you c[Em]ry every night in your s[D]leep
I was so y[Bm]oung, you should have k[Em]nown better than to lean on [D]me
You n[Bm]ever thought of anyone e[Em]lse, you just saw your p[D]ain
And now I c[Bm]ry in the middle of the night f[Em]or the same damn t[D]hing
Repeat Chorus
[D]Because of you[C]
[D]Because of you[C] [D]
