Intro:  G           Bm          C  (2X's)

G              Bm               C                                G
   You don`t write, tonight I`m waiting for your call
               Bm             C                        G
You say you`re busy baby, but is that really all
                    Bm                C
Maybe it`s just the loneliness that`s driving me insane
                    G     Bm                 C
But when we used to play, oh...was it just a game

Chorus:
Am           D7       G                            
     If it`s so, that we were meant to be,      
Am                     D7          G (tacet)
         then why, oh why, did you go away
             C      Bm  Am    D7(tacet 2x)          G        Bm     C
And leave me blue, ooh, ooh,              you don`t write             
             G       Bm      C
No you don`t write

G             Bm           C                          G
    You don`t write, don`t give me no excuse
             Bm       C                      G
I`m sick and tired of all your abuse
                 Bm                  C
So don`t say you love me when you`re miles and miles away
                       G         Bm              C
`Cause when the cat`s awake, the mice pretend to play

(Chorus)

(Repeat 2nd verse + chorus)

          G        Bm       C                                  G
You don`t write       to me anymore, you hardly call me on the phone, 
         Bm                      C
I`m all alone, won`t you come on home 
             G         Bm     C                   G       Bm     C
No you don`t write,                 No, you don`t write. 
              G        Bm     C                   G       Bm     C    
Oh, you don`t write,                No, you don`t write. 

D7(tacet 2x)
