Words & Music:
There is a "Strum It!" transcription of this in the March 2002 issue of Guitar One. I've given the simple chords below. If you want to play the harder version heard on Elvis Presley's recording, sub the following: G C/G for G and C F/C for C in the verses.
We're caught in a trap--; I can't walk out
D C G
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why can't you see what you're doing to me
D C D C Bm D7
When you don't believe a word I say?
C G Bm C D
We can't go on together, with suspicious minds.
Em Bm C D
And we can't build our dreams on suspicious minds.
So, if an old friend I know, drops by to say hello,
would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
Here we go again, asking where I've been.
You can see these tears are real I'm crying.
Em Bm C D
Oh, let our love survive. Ah, dry the tears from your eyes.
Em Bm C
Let's don't let a good thing die; when, honey,
D G C G D
You know I've never lied to you. Mmm, yeah, yeah!
FIRST VERSE REPRISE: [repeat first two lines as you fade out]
