G
You think you know
                 D
The smile on her lips

The thrill an' the touch
             G
Of her fingertips
             C         G           D          C      C  G/b  Am  G
But I forgot more than you'll ever know about her.

You think you'll find
A heaven of bliss
In each caress
In each tender kiss
But I forgot more than you'll ever know about her.
C
You stole her love from me one day
G
You didn't care how it hurt me
A7
But you can never steal away
D7
Memories of what used to be.
You think she's yours
To have and to hold
Someday you'll learn
When her love grows cold
But I forgot more than you'll ever know about her.
