Lyrics

Before I'm Fool Enough


G                   C        G
I'm goin’ away babe I cannot stay
                                D7
It's gonna hurt for a long long time
              G        C                 G
But I've been with you and I've been without you
    C       G            D7           G
And neither way gives me any peace of mind

                     C         G
So I may leave in the wee small hours
                          C            G
If I'm not brave enough to kiss you goodbye
    Em                          G
But once I get the nerve up I'm goin’
                          D7               G
Before I'm fool enough to give it one more try


(instrumental)

                       C                  G
Much more than halfway I've tried it your way
                               D7
But you don't see me the way I do
                 G       C             G
You really don't want me you want your daydreams
       C       G     D7            G
Simple love is all I ever promised you

                     C         G
So I may leave in the wee small hours
                          C            G
If I'm not brave enough to kiss you goodbye
    Em                          G
But once I get the nerve up I'm goin’
                          D7               G
Before I'm fool enough to give it one more try


    Em                          G
But once I get the nerve up I'm goin’
                          D7               G
Before I'm fool enough to give it one more try
