I've Heard That Tear-Stained Monologue You Do There by the Door Before You Go  Mason Williams

I?ve Heard that Tear Stained Monologue You Do There by the Door Before You Go
words and music
by Mason Williams
Some[C]times I get the feel[F]ing I?ve passed [G]this way one time in lif[C]e b[G]ef[F]ore[C] [G] [F]
L[C]ike the rerun o[F]f some movie I?v[G]e seen a thousand Saturdays ago[C] [G] [F] [C]
I [Am]know exactly what your gonna say b[D]efore it happens in each scene[G]
An[C]d I find myself rehear[F]sing for that blackout s[G]ituation
Where the punchline reaches out and punches me[C] [G] [F]
I [C]always play the sam[F]e part; the good [G]guy gets the girl, I wind u[C]p d[G]ea[F]d.[C] [G] [F]
Wh[C]o rides into the sunse[F]t when the credits[G] start to roll and flash upon the
screen inside my he[C]ad[G] [F] [C]
Th[Am]e show is done, the lights go up, I th[D]row my empty popcorn box a[G]way
Go[Am] back to unreality on rubbe[D]r legs, I walk into the d[G]ay
Li[Am]fe is never logical, the faces change, the lines all stay the [D]same
I [Am]know the cues where I came in, the exits but I can?t recall your n[D]ame
So[C] save your breath, don?t tell [F]me how it all co[G]mes out, somehow I think I[C] kn[GF]ow
I?ve heard[C] that tear stained monologue[F] you do there by [G]the door before you go.[C]
Wh[Am]at makes me take you by the hand and stand [D]around in line one time aga[G]in
Just to se[Am]e the same old madness.. well, I ask you ain?t this th[D]e place where I
came in[G]?
So[C] save your breath, don?t tell [F]me how it all co[G]me out, somehow I think [C]I k[G]no[F]w[C]
I?[C]ve heard that tear stained mo[F]nologue you do th[G]ere by the door before you g[C]o.

This work is entirely my own creation made especially for you on a Mac!
