Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 3]

Intro: / G - F C / /

Listen, boy, I don't want to see you let
A good thing slip away
You know I don't like watching anybody make
The same mistakes I made
She's a real nice girl and she's always there for you
But a nice girl wouldn't tell you what you should do

/ G - / F C / : / Bm Bb Am - / Cm G Am AmC /

Oh, listen, boy, I'm sure that you think
You got it all under control
You don't want somebody telling you
The way to stay in someone's soul
You're a big boy now and you'll never let her go
But that's just the kind of thing she ought to know

... / Cm G Am GA /

Tell her about it, tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason to accept that you're for real
Tell her about it, tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her, let her know how much she means

/ D - F#m - / Bm - Em EmA / :

Listen, boy, it's not automatically
A certain guarantee
To insure yourself you've got to provide
Communication constantly
When you love someone you're always insecure
And there's only one good way to reassure

{As Refrain}
Tell her about it, let her know how much you care
When she can't be with you tell her you wish you were there
Tell her about it everyday before you leave
Pay her some attention, give her something to believe

'Cause now and then she'll get to worrying
Just because you haven't spoken for so long
Though you may not have done anything
Will that be a consolation when she's gone

/ F Dm Eb - / Gm C D - / 1st / Gm C A - /

Listen, boy, it's good information
From a man who's made mistakes
Just a word or two that she gets from you
Could be the difference that it makes
She's a trusting soul, she's put her trust in you
But a girl like that won't tell you what you should do


Tell her about it, tell her how you feel right now
Tell her about it, the girl don't want to wait too long
You got to tell her about it
Tell her now and you won't go wrong
You got to tell her about it before it gets too late
You got to tell her about it
