Operator


by Jim Croce
( G - - - / Bm - - - / Am - - - / C > - < //  (2x) )

Operator, oh, could you help me place this call
See the number on the match book is old and faded
She's living in L.A., with my best old ex-friend Ray,
The guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

G - - - / Bm - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / Am - - - / D - - - / Em - - - / > - - - // (2x)

 C:	Isn't that the way they say it goes?
Well let's forget all that and give me the number, if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine
And to show I've overcome the blow
I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels

G - - - / C - - - / G - - - / C - D - / G - - - / Am - - - / C - Em - / Bm - D - / C - - - /
D - - - / C - - - / C/B - - - / Am - - - / Am/G - - - / D - - - / C - - - //  (intro)

Operator, oh, could you help me place this call
'Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me
There's something in my eyes, you know it happens every time
I think about a love that I thought would save me

 C:	Isn't that the way they say it goes?
Well let's forget all that and give me the number, if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine
And to show I've overcome the blow
I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels

 T:	No, no, no, no, that's not the way it feels

G - - - / C - - - //

Operator, oh, let's forget about this call
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to
Thank you for your time, oh you've been so much more than kind
You can keep the dime

 C:	Isn't that the way they say it goes?
Well let's forget all that and give me the number, if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine
And to show I've overcome the blow
I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels
