Well, if [Dm]you told me you were drowning, I w[Am/D]ould not lend a hand,

Well,[Dm] I was there, and I saw what you did, [Am/D]saw it with my own two eyes,
So you can [Bb/D]wipe off that grin, I know where you've been, it's [F/D]all been a pack of lies!

It's the [Bb/D]first time, the last time, we e[F/D]ver met,

*****************************************************************************
You could use any combination of these alternative chord shapes,
or stick to one set throughout. For variety, I like to use the open 4th string as the drone
for the earlier parts of the song, saving the bottom D until the drum break
and final choruses, hitting the bass note first, then strumming the rest of the chord,
but avoiding the 5th string on the C and Bb chords.

Dm(type2)= 000232
