Standard (EADGBE)

Should have been diff’rent, but it wasn't diff’rent,


Was the...same old story, dear John and so long

Should have fit like a glove, should have fit like a ring


Like a diamond ring, a token of true love

Should have all worked out, but it didn't

She should be here now, but she isn't


There's your trouble, there's your trouble


You keep seeing double with the wrong one

You can’t see I love you, you can’t see she doesn't


But you just keep a-holding on

There's your trouble

So now you're thinking 'bout all you're missing

How...deep you're sinking, round and round and dragging down

Why don't you cash in your chips, why don't you call it a loss

Not such a big loss, chalk it up, better luck

Could have been true love, but it wasn't

It should all add up, but it doesn't
