Another great non-hit, released in the fall of '66 to underwhelming
response.  Note that Rob Grill rerecorded the lead vocal track for the
_Let's Live For Today_ LP.

                      (P. F. Sloan - Steve Barri)

Verse 1:

	Em          Am
	   So many words
	D      /F#                G
	   Are buzzing 'round my head
	Em          Am
	   So many words
	D             /F#           G
	   Are still waiting to be said

	E         A         E            A
	I keep a-tryin' to tell you I'm sorry
	E         A               E         A
	I keep a-tryin'  but my mouth gets numb
	E         A         E            A
	I keep a-tryin' to tell you I'm sorry
	E                         G#
	  It's on the tip of my tongue

Chorus:

	D#             G#         C#m
	   It's on the tip of my tongue [1, 2, 3: baby]
	D#             G#         C#m
	   It's on the tip of my [1, 4: tongue]  [2, 3: T- t- t- ah!]
	D#             G#          A
	   It's on the tip of my tongue
	                         C#m    B
	But the words they don't come

Verse 2:

	Each time you see me
	You must be thinking, "here comes a bad scene"
	But if you could just be me
	Then you'd know what I mean

	When I keep trying  to tell you I'm sorry
	When I keep hoping it's not over and done [45: yeah  LP: no!]
	When I keep trying  to tell you I'm sorry
	It's on the tip of my tongue

Bridge:

	C 
	   What is it you want me to do
	Am
	   Do I have to come out and spell it for you
	    Bm           Bb+  Bm7/A        E/G#
	It must hurt you too, going on this way
	 A                         B             E
	Wanting to hear words that I just can't say

[repeat chorus 2X; fade at end 2nd time]
