Lyrics
If I Could Read Your Mind, performed by Gordon Lightfoot


key: GG 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 G (add A) Dm6/F G Dm6/F G


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!

G G (add A) Dm6/F G Dm6/F G
