It might have been things I did
C   Cmaj9    FaddG   G                 Dm7
But don't be unkind, it don't mean I'm blind
Am9         Em11
But after a thing or two
C          Cmaj9    FaddG  G              Dm7
I think of lying in bed, I shouldn't have said, but there it is
    Am9  Em11  Am9  Em11

             Dm7 Dm6
You see it's all clear
         Dm7         E7sus4/F  (N.C.)
You were meant to be here
             Am9         Em11     Am9  Em11

Am9          Em11
Well maybe I might have changed
C   Cmaj9       FaddG   G                   Dm7
And not been so cruel, not been such a fool
Am9              Em11
But after what's done is done
C Cmaj9      FaddG    G                       Dm7
I just can't recall, it doesn't matter at all
    Am9  Em11   Am9  Em11

NOTE:  I saw some changes in the intro that I felt were important to
post.  Actually they're the same notes, but on different strings, making
it much easier to play.  Also a little change in the F chord and some
general condensing.
