Tracks Of My Tears


by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles
(William "Smokey" Robinson/Warren Moore/Marv Tarplin)	

People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Altho' I might be a-laughing loud and heart
Deep inside I'm blue

G - C - / - - D - / G - C - / > - G - // (2x)

 C:	So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you

G - C - / - - D - /  x2  /  x2  / G - C - / > - G - / C - G - /    //

Since you left me if you see me with another girl
Seeming like I'm having fun
Altho' she may be cute, she's just a substitute
'Cause you're the permanent one

 C:	So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you

 B:	Hey, yeah, yeah, (outside) I'm masquerading
(Inside) my hope is fading
(Just a clown) ooo yeah, a-since you put me down
My smile is my makeup I wear since my breakup with you baby

( C - - - ) / C - G -  (8x) / C - - - /    /    /    / D - - - /    //

 C:	So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you
