Topic: Foolish Hearts

I was watching a really old  movie and the narrator said - "he walked away and she let him go"

I grabbed my notebook and wrote that down and just kept writing - this is what I came up with....


Foolish Hearts By Jim Kenyon


[D]He never said how he [G]felt


He [D]never felt a need to [A]say


It was[D] hard to tell if it was [G]real


but he [A] said we’ll talk another[D] day






[D]And there never was a[G] later


It [D]never happened even [A]once


He [D]walked away, and she [G]let him go


Hopeless[A] faith in a feigned [D]front


.




Chorus



[G]Oh foolish hearts, oh foolish hearts


Oh [D]don’t let your let pride get in the way


Oh [G]foolish hearts, oh foolish hearts


Don’t let your [A]dreams go astray




[G]Oh foolish hearts, foolish hearts


You know [D]diamonds can turn to dust


Oh [G]foolish hearts, foolish hearts


please be[A] careful of whom you [D]trust




.






[D]And that’s exactly how it[G] ended


Reckless [D]pride right from the [A]start



Yeah she [D]thought things might work [G]out


just [A] careless hoping on her [D] part


[D]It was something how she [G]loved him


never [D]can be understood by a [A]man


Ro[D]mance is only for the [G]truest hearts


Every[A]one else does the best they [D]can


.




Chorus




[G]Oh foolish hearts, oh foolish hearts


Oh [D]don’t let your let pride get in the way


Oh [G]foolish hearts, oh foolish hearts


Don’t let your [A]dreams go astray




[G]Oh foolish hearts, foolish hearts


You know [D]diamonds can turn to dust


Oh [G]foolish hearts, foolish hearts


please be[A] careful of whom you [D]trust


out go




Oh [G]foolish hearts, foolish hearts


please be[A] careful of whom you [D]trust


Oh [G]foolish hearts, foolish hearts


Be[A] careful of whom you [D]trust


Slower


Be[A] careful of whom you [D]trust

Re: Foolish Hearts

Wow, TIG ... just wow! What you can grow with just a small seed is amazing. I love the alliteration in the line "Hopeless faith in a feigned front" ... really makes it stick.

Re: Foolish Hearts

Enjoyed that Jim - I'll shoot you my take on it a little later...not sure if it will follow how you play it, but it works for me. Another great song by you.

Thanks so much for the kindness.

I would love to hear your  version of it. IMHO there really is no right version of a song, its how you feel as you sing it - if you like it - it's perfect.
