CAN'T LET GO (Randy Weeks)
--------------------------
[Most, if not all, of the chords here are actually 7's (i.e., G7, C7, & D7),
 but I've just written the plain chords for legibility's sake.]

[intro]

G              G              G                      G
Told you baby, one more time, don't make me sit all alone and cry
          D         C                      G   G
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
           G                    G              G                    G
I'm like a fish out of water, a cat in a tree, you don't even wanna talk to me
          D         C                      G   G
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

           G                   G            G                       G
  He won't take me back when I come around; says he's sorry then he puts me out
          C          C                      G                  G
  I got a big chain around my neck, and I'm broken down like a train wreck
            D         C                     G   G
  Well it's over, I know it but I can't let go


See, I got a candle and it burns so bright in my window every night
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

You don't like to see me standing around, feel like I've been shot and didn't fall down
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

  He won't take me back when I come around; says he's sorry then he puts me out
  I got a big chain around my neck, and I'm broken down like a train wreck
  Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

  [guitar solo: same chords as two choruses]

Turn off the trouble like you turn off a light, went off and left me, it just ain't right
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

Round every corner, something I see brings me right back how it used to be
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

  He won't take me back when I come around; says he's sorry then he puts me out
  I got a big chain around my neck, and I'm broken down like a train wreck
  Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go

  He won't take me back when I come around; says he's sorry then he puts me out
  I got a big chain around my neck, and I'm broken down like a train wreck
  Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
  It's over, I know it, but I can't let go
  It's over, I know it, but I can't let go
  It's over, I know it, but I can't let go
