You Couldn't Get The Picture

Song Author Chuck Harter Performer: George Jones og Burl Stephens Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I walked in the front door turned the light on [F]in the [C]hall

Then I saw the post-it notes that she had stuck up on the wall
The [F]first one said I love you [G7]but I can't live on love [C]alone
The Little yellow post-it-notes were stuck up [F]every[C]where
One was on the microwave and [F]one on the Frigi[C]daire
[F]It said I cried all night
But you weren't there to watch the teardrops [C]fall
But if [G7]you couldn't get the picture
Maybe [F]you can read the [G7]writing on the [C]wall

[F]Sometimes you do what you've gotta do if you do anything at [C]all  
[G7]Sometimes it takes a freight train coming
Sometimes it takes a mountain to [C]fall
[F]Sometimes you do what you've gotta do
Sometimes you gotta walk before you [C]crawl
But if [G7]you couldn't get the picture
Maybe [F]you can read the [G7]writing on the [C]wall

The post-it note on her pillow said the [F]lonely nights were [C]hell

The one on the mirror said take a good look at yourself
And the [F]ones you put on the closet door
Said I waited long enough for you to [C]call
But if [G7]you couldn't get the picture
Maybe [F]you can read the [G7]writing on the [C]wall

[F]Sometimes you do what you've gotta do if you do anything at [C]all  
But if [G7]you couldn't get the picture
Maybe [F]you can read the [G7]writing on the [C]wall
But if [G7]you couldn't get the picture
Maybe y[F]ou can read the [G7]writing on the [C]wall


I walked in the front door turned the light on in the hall

Then I saw the post-it notes that she had stuck up on the wall
The first one said I love you but I can't live on love alone
The Little yellow post-it-notes were stuck up everywhere
One was on the microwave and one on the Frigidaire
It said I cried all night
But you weren't there to watch the teardrops fall
But if you couldn't get the picture
Maybe you can read the writing on the wall

Sometimes you do what you've gotta do if you do anything at all
Sometimes it takes a freight train coming
Sometimes it takes a mountain to fall
Sometimes you do what you've gotta do
Sometimes you gotta walk before you crawl
But if you couldn't get the picture
Maybe you can read the writing on the wall

The post-it note on her pillow said the lonely nights were hell

The one on the mirror said take a good look at yourself
And the ones you put on the closet door
Said I waited long enough for you to call
But if you couldn't get the picture
Maybe you can read the writing on the wall

Sometimes you do what you've gotta do if you do anything at all
But if you couldn't get the picture
Maybe you can read the writing on the wall
But if you couldn't get the picture
Maybe you can read the writing on the wall
