I Was a Fool to Care  James Taylor

 

(James Taylor) 1975
[Em7 Gmaj7 A A/B, Em7 Gmaj7 A A#dim7] 
I was a fool to care, [Em7] [Dmaj7]
I was a fool to care [F#7sus4] [F#7] [Bm7]
I was a fool to care [Em7] [Dmaj7]
but I don't care even if I was a fool [Bm] [Gmaj7] [F#m7] [Em7] [A4] [A]
I'm still in love with you [Dmaj7] [F#7sus4] [F#7]
Had I listened to the grapevine, [Bm7] [Gmaj7] [F#m7]
I might have had my doubts [Em7] [A4] [Dmaj7]
But I did my level best just to block them out [Bm7] [Gmaj7] [F#m7] [Bm7] [E7] [D/F#]
"Cause love is so unwise and love has no eyes [G A4 A7, D /c# /b /a]
And it took a while for a fool to see [G] [D]
what his friends were on about [E4] [E7]
I was a fool to care [G] [A] [D]
I was a fool to care [F#7sus4] [F#7] [Bm7]
I was a fool to care [Em7] [Dmaj7]
but I don't care even if I was a fool [Bm] [Gmaj7] [F#m7] [Em7] [A4] [A]
I'm still in love with you [D] [Bm]
Imagining your face, [C] [G]
it almost fills the empty space before me [C] [Am7] [Dmaj7] [D]
I can see you eyes and almost hear your lovely lies [C] [G] [Fmaj7] [Em7] [A7]
[F#7sus4] [F#7] 
I wish I was an old man [Bm7] [Gmaj7] [F#m7]
and love was through with me [Em7] [A4] [Dmaj7]
I wish I was a baby on my mama's knee [Bm7] [Gmaj7] [F#m7] [Bm7] [E7] [D/F#]
I wish I was a freight train moving down the line [G A4 A7, D /c# /b /a]
Just keeping track of time [G] [D]
without all these memories [Bm] [E7]
I was a fool to care [G] [A] [D]
I was a fool to care [F#7sus4] [F#7] [Bm7]
I was a fool to care [Em7] [Dmaj7 ]
but I don't care even if I was a fool [Bm] [Gmaj7] [F#m7] [Em7] [A4] [A]
I'm still in love with you [D] [F#7sus4] [F#7]
Baby, yes, I Am [Bm7] [Am7] [Gmaj7 ]
I could have opened my eyes, [F#m7] [Em7] [Gmaj7] [A] [A/B]
I could have seen through your lies [Em7] [Gmaj7] [A] [A/B]
I could have stood for no more, [Em7] [Gmaj7] [A] [A/B]
I could have walked out the door [Em7] [Gmaj7] [A] [F#dim7]
But I was a fool to care, I was a fool to care [Em7 Dmaj7, F#7sus4 F#7 Bm7]
But I was a fool to care, I was a fool to care [Em7 Dmaj7, F#7sus4 F#7 Bm7]
You weren't nothing but a fool to care; just a country fool to care.
