[Verse]
G                          Am
  Something told me it was over
                     G
when I saw you and her talking,

Something deep down in my soul said 'Cry Girl',

when I saw you and that girl, walking out.

Ooooh. I would rather, I would rather go blind boy,

Than to see you, walk away from me child, and all.

That I don't want to watch you leave me baby,

Most of all, I just don't,

I just don't want to be free no


[Verse]
                      Am
I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking
                               G
Of your kisses and your warm embrace, yeah,

When the reflection in the glass
           Am
that I held to my lips now baby,
                               G
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah.


[Chorus]
                                  Am
And baby, baby, I would rather be blind boy
                                                 G
Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah
                                Am
Baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind now
