INTRO: G Dsus4 Am Em
VERSE 1:
[G]Since you've been g[D]one, [Am]I feel my life sl[Em]ipping away.

[G]All I made was [D]one mistake,[Em] how much more will I [F]have to pay.
CHORUS:
[C]W/why can't you [G/D]think it over. [C/E]Why can't you fo[D/F#]rget about the [D]past?
[G]When love makes a[D] sound babe, [Am]a heart needs a s[C]econd chance.
[G]Don't put me [D]down babe, [Am]can't you see I love[D] you.
[G]Since you've been gone I've[D] been in a trance.
[Am]This heart needs a se[Em]cond chance.
[Am]Don't say it's over, I [C]just can't say goodbye.[G]

[G]So this is [D]love,[Am] standing in the po[Em]uring rain.
[G]I've called on [D]you. [Am] 'Cause she never me[Em]ant a thing.
[G]All I know I ain't [D]got the right[Em] to ask you to [F]sympathize. But ... (to CHORUS)

[G]Why can't we [G/D]talk it over, [C/E]why can't we for[D/F#]get about,
for[D]get about the past. [G] A heart[D] needs a second chance.[Am]
When [C]love makes a sound babe,[G] a heart[D] needs a second chance.[Am]
Don't[C] put me down babe. [G]Since you've been gone,
I've[D] been in a trance.[Am] This heart needs a s[Em]econd chance.
[Am]Don't say it's over, I [C]just can't say goodbye.[G]

(The original song is written in Bb-major so there are a bunch of hard to
play Bb's and Eb's with funky bass notes. I transcribed this version for
ease of play and singing.)
