If You Could Read My Mind Chords

   
G                  D add A                 Dm6/F
If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell.
G                D add A            Dm6/F
Just like an old time movie, ‘bout a ghost from a wishing well.
G                               C                          D                     Em   C                               G
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet, you know that ghost is me, 
        C                 G/B                Am7sus4      D                            G       G add A
And I won’t never be set free, as long as Im a ghost, that you can’t see.


 G            D add A                  Dm6/F
If I could read your mind love, what a tale your thought could tell.
G              D add A              Dm6/F
Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drug stores sell.
G                                                  C                               D                  Em   C                      G
When you reach the part, where the heartaches come, the hero would be me,  but heros, often fail,
        C                         G/B             Am7sus4                 D                     G       G add A
And you won’t read that book again, because the endings just too hard to take!

G                             C                            D                              Em      C                 G
I’d walk away, like a movie star, who gets burned in a three way script, into, number two,
    C                    G/B                    Am7sus4          D                        Em            C                       G
A movie queen to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me, but for now love, lets be real;
   C                             G/B                         Am7sus4           D
I never thought I could act this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it,
C                           G/B                            Am7sus4              D                    G
I don’t know where we went wrong but the feelin’s gone and I just can’t get it back. 


G                  D add A                 Dm6/F
If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell.
G                D add A             Dm6/F
Just like an old time movie, ‘bout a ghost from a wishing well.
G                              C                           D                     Em        C                   G
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet, the stories always end.
       C              G/B                              Am7sus4             D                   Em          C                     G
And if you read between the lines, you’d know that Im just tryin’ to understand, the feelin’s that you lack.

   C                             G/B                          Am7sus4           D             
I never thought I could feel this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it.
C                          G/B                            Am7sus4               D                    G
I don’t know where we went wrong but the feelin’s gone and I just can’t get it back!
