This is the first song I've ever really completely figured out.  Hope
you enjoy it.  If you find any mistakes please let me know.  

Also, if anyone has any the chords for Jim Croce's "I'll Have to Say I
Love You in a Song", I would greatly appreciate their posting (or emailing)

You took me by surprise.  You didn't realize that I was waiting.


E          A                   Dm-maj7          
|Time goes slowly, but carries on.
|            Dmaj7                    A7
|And now the best years have come and gone. 
|               Dmaj7
|You took me by surprise.
|            F                  E 
|I didn't realize that you were laughing.
|D    A                      D
|Laughing - look what you're doing to me.
|D    A                    D 
|Laughing - this ain't the way it should be.
|    D                      E                        A 
|You took away everything I had, you put the hurt on me.
|(repeat last three lines)

Verse 2: (same pattern as Verse 1)

I go alone now calling your name after losing at the game.
You took me by surprise.  I didn't realize that you were laughing.
