Where Were You When I Needed You  The Grass Roots

"Where Were You When I Needed You"
(P.F. Sloan / Steve Barri)
Intro (acoustic 12-string):
[CaddD] v v [G/B] v v [G/A] v v [G]v v

Verse 1:
D[D]on't bother cryin', d[G]on't bother crawlin'
I[D]t's all over now, [A]no use in stallin'
The l[D]ove I once felt, I don't feel anym[G]ore for you
T[D]his time I'll even o[A]pen the door for you
Y[D]ou walked out when [D7]I was down
Well n[G]ow I'm well off
And l[E7]ook who's comin' r[A]ound
Wh[D]ere were y[G]ou when I needed you
Wh[D]ere were y[A]ou when I wanted you
Wh[D]ere were y[G]ou when I needed you
CaddD G/B G/A G (as per intro)
Verse 2:
You're lookin' good, it's hard to fight it
But no use explainin', I've already decided
That livin' with you, it's worse than without you
I won't spend a lifetime a-worryin' about you
Oh, things got rough and you disappeared
Now I'm back on my feet
But look, look who's standing there
(repeat chorus)
Harpsichord solo:
[D] [G] [D] [A] [D] 
[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] 
Verse 3:
Oh, you were so young, and you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's innocent child
That first day I saw you, you really got to me
I thought I could change you, what good did it do me
Oh, things got rough and you wouldn't wait
Now you're tripping back
But babe, it's too late
(repeat chorus to fade)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
