[INTRO] (played by the right hand on piano)
E    A    E

[Verse 1]
E            G#m7
So long, my only friend
C#m7                   B   
I guess we gave it a try
A                     E
And then I guess we tried again
C#                 C#   G#m/C#  C#
I don't remember why
E            G#m7
But nothing's as hard to do
C#m7               B 
As just saying goodbye
A                     E
And when love is in the way, you gotta say
F#m         F#m/A          E       (walk up to F#m with left hand)
I guess love ain't always right



    

[Pre-Chorus]
F#m                   G#m7
And I find out you'd gone and met a new man
A                       B              
And told him he's the love of your life

[Chorus]
A      E/G#      F#m                  F#m  E/G#
How could you, baby? (could you, baby)

A      E/G#      F#m                  F#m  E/G#
How could you, baby? (could you, baby)
A      E/G#      F#m                         E
Well, how could you, baby? (could you, baby)



    

[Verse 2]
E            G#m7
Well, have you lost your memories?
C#m7                   B   
Did you wash 'em down the drain?'
A                     E
And did you have some help deciding
C#                 C#   G#m/C#  C#
To forget my name?
E            G#m7
Cause nothing I can say to you
C#m7               B 
Could ever ease this pain
A                     E
I'm just waiting for the day when I can say
F#m         F#m/A          E       (walk up to F#m with left hand)
That you are mine again

[Pre-Chorus]
F#m                   G#m7
When I found out you'd gone and met a new man
A                       B  
I felt so lonely that I cried

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
E     E/D#   E/D      E/C#
Well, how could you, baby?
E/C#  E/D   E/D#   E
How could you, baby?
E     E/D#   E/D   E/C#
How could you, baby?
E/C#  E/D   E/D#   E
How could you, baby?

[Pre-Chorus]
F#m                   G#m7
When I found out you'd gone and met a new man
A                       B  
I felt so lonely that I cried, I cried, I cried

[Chorus]
