She Thinks His Name Was John  Reba McEntire

By Reba McEntire

This song is mostly piano but when playing along
you can pick out the bass notes and fingerpick
to get the same sound...Larry I may have missed a
transition chord here or there so any comments would help.
C/B X20010 (used as a walkup/walkdown to/from Am)
[C]She can account for [Am]all of the men in [C/B]her [C]past
[C]Where they are now, who they [Am]married, how many [C/B]kids they [C]have
[C]She knew their back[Am]grounds, family [C/B]and [C]friends
[C]A few she [Am]even talks to [C/B]now and [Am]then
But there is [F]one she can't [C]put her fingers on
There is [F]one who [C]never leaves her [Am]thoughts
And she [Am]thinks his [F]name [G]was [C]John
A chance meeting, a party a few years back
Broad shoulders and blue eyes, his hair was so black
He was a friend of friend you could say
She let his smile just sweep her away
And in her heart she knew that it was wrong
But too much wine and she left his bed at dawn
And she thinks his name was John
Now each day is one day that's left in her life
She won't know love, have a marriage or sing lullabies
She lays all alone and cries herself to sleep
'Cause she let a stranger kill her hopes and her dreams
And all her friends say what a pity what a loss
And in the end when she was barely hangin' on
All she could say is she thinks his name was John
She thinks his name was John
