I'll Cry Instead


by The Beatles (Lennon-McCartney)
I've got every reason on earth to be mad,
'Cause I just lost the only girl I had
If I could get my way, I 'd get myself locked up today
But I can't, so I cry instead

G - C - (6x) / D - - - /   / C - - - /    / C7 - - - /    / 
G - - - / D - - - / G - GC C /    //

I got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet
I can't talk to people that I meet
If I could see you now, I'd try to make you sad somehow
But I can't, so I cry instead

 C:	Don't want to cry when there's people there
I get shy when they start to stare
I'm gonna hide my self away
But I'll come back again someday

Bm - - - /    / A - - - /    / D - - - /    / E - - - / A - - - //

And when I do you better hide all those girls,
I'm gonna break their hearts all around the world
Yes, I'm gonna break them in two,
I'll show you what this lovin' man can do
Until then I'll cry instead

I've got every reason on earth to be mad,
'Cause I just lost the only girl I had
If I could get my way, I 'd get my self locked up today
But I can't, so I cry instead

 C:	Don't want to cry when there's people there
I get shy when they start to stare
I'm gonna hide my self away
But I'll come back again someday

And when I do you better hide all those girls,
I'm gonna break their hearts all around the world
Yes, I'm gonna break them in two,
I'll show you what this lovin' man can do
Until then I'll cry instead
