Lovers Cross

Song Author Jim Croce Lyrics by: Jim Croce Performer: Jim Croce Submitted by: Hjalti_G
[C]Guess that [Am]it was b[Dm]ound to ha[G7]ppen; w[C]as just a m[Am]atter of t[Dm]ime    [G7]    
But now I've co[C]me to [Am]my deci[Dm]sion, And it's a-o[C]ne of the p[C/B]ainful k[Am]ind   
[Am/G]'Cause now it se[F]ems that you wa[G]nted a ma[Am]rtyr, [Am/G]    
Just [F]a regular [C/E]guy wouldn't [Dm]do [G7]    
But ba[C]by, I[C/B] can't h[Am]ang up[Dm]on no lover's cr[G7]oss for y[C]ou. [C7]    

Yes I re[C]ally g[Am]ot to h[Dm]and it t[G7]o you, 'cause [C]girl, you r[Am]eally tr[Dm]ied    [G7]    
But for e[C]very t[Am]ime that [Dm]we spent la[G7]ughin'
There were t[C]wo t[C/B]imes tha[Am]t I cr[Am/G]ied.     
And you were try[F]in' to ma[G]ke me your m[Am]art   [Am/G]yr     
And that's the o[F]ne thing I j[C]ust couldn't [Dm]do    [G7]    
'Cause [C]baby, [C/B]I can't h[Am]ang u[Dm]pon no lo[G7]ver's cross for y[C]ou.  [C7]    

'Cause[F] tables are m[G]eant for t[Am]urn   [Em]in',   
And p[F]eople are b[C]ound to ch[Dm]ange [G7]    
And [F]bridges are me[G]ant for b[Am]urn   [Em]in',   
When the p[F]eople and m[C]emories they j[Dm7]ust aren't the s[G7]ame    [Dm7]    [G7]    

So I'll ho[C]pe that y[Am]ou can fi[Dm]nd ano[G7]ther who can ta[C]ke what [Am]I could [Dm]not   [G7]    
[C]He'll have to [Am]be a s[Dm]uper g[G7]uy or may[C]be a s[C/B]uper g[Am]od    [Am/G]    
'Cause I n[F]ever was m[G]uch of a ma[Am]rtyr b[Am/G]efore     
And I ai[F]n't 'bout to st[C/E]art nothin' [Dm]new [G7]    
And ba[C]by, I c[C/B]an't h[Am]ang u[Dm]pon no lover's c[G7]ross for y[C]ou.  

[E]    [Am]    [F#m7]    [G]    [F]    [G7]    [C]    

Guess that it was bound to happen; was just a matter of time
But now I've come to my decision, And it's a-one of the painful kind
'Cause now it seems that you wanted a martyr,
Just a regular guy wouldn't do
But baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.

Yes I really got to hand it to you, 'cause girl, you really tried
But for every time that we spent laughin'
There were two times that I cried.
And you were tryin' to make me your martyr
And that's the one thing I just couldn't do
'Cause baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.

'Cause tables are meant for turnin',
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burnin',
When the people and memories they just aren't the same

So I'll hope that you can find another who can take what I could not
He'll have to be a super guy or maybe a super god
'Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't 'bout to start nothin' new
And baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.
