Diary

by: Bread

((INTRO:)) [G-C-D- (2x)]


[G           GM7        F]
I found her diary underneath
  the tree
[C6                   G]
And started reading about me
[G                 GM7]
The words she'd written took me
[  F]
  by surprise
[C6]
You'd never read them in her
[    G]
  eyes
[G dim          G]
They said that she had found
[    D7          Cdim     Em G7]
The love she'd waited for
[C             G]
Wouldn't you know it
[C             G]
She wouldn't show it

[1st stanza chords]
Then she confronted with
  the writing there
Simply pretending not to care
I passed it off as just in
  keeping with
Her total disconcerting it
And though she tried to hide
The love that she denied
Wouldn't you know it
She wouldn't show it.


((REFRAIN:))
[ Cdim   Em      G7       C]
 And as I go through my life
[ Am7    D7     Dm9/C    GM7/B]
 I will give to her, my wife
[          C]
 All the sweet things I can
[    Bsus]
   find


[1st stanza chords]
I found her diary underneath
  the tree
And started reading about me
The words begin to stick then
  tears to fall
Her meaning now was clear to
  see
The love she'd waited for
Was someone else not me
Wouldn't you know it
She wouldn't show it


((CHORUS:))
[ Cdim   Em     G7        C]
 And as I go through my life
[ Am7      D7     Dm9/C    GM7/B]
 I will wish for her, his wife
[          C]
 All the sweet things she can
[    G]
   find
[ Bm7     C                D7]
 All the sweet things she can
[    G]
   find
