            I Know How to Lose You (John Hiatt, Mystic Pinball)

G      C       D       G
I don't know how to keep a good thing
C       D       G
I've lost it all before
G       C       D       G
Had a sweet girl back awhile
C               D
I walked right through her door
D       G       C       G
Out of town, out of state
C
Out of all she could see through
Em      D       C       G
Don't think I'll ever find love again
Em      D       G
But I know how to lose you

G       C       D       G
Down the hall, she turns off the lights
C       D       G
I left before the dawn
G       C       D       G 
No word said, not one tear shed
C               D
But for a while you're gone
D       G       C       G
Then I'm neatly dressed, in my emptiness
C
Out on the bright avenue
Em      D       C       G
Don't think I'll ever find love again
Em      D       G
But I know how to lose you

B7              Em
You know the story, still I hope for myself
C                               G       D
Like a man who plays the lottery expecting great wealth
B7                      Em              C
No regard for his mental state, his emotions or his health
C                               D
Like this was all happening to some other version of himself

G       C       D       G
People see me on the street
C       D       G
They don't recall your name
G       C       D       G
It's like they've never seen us before
C               D
How well I hide the pain
D       G       C       G
And tip my hat, and crack a grin
C
And remark on a sky so blue
Em      D       C       G
Don't think I'll ever find love again
Em      D       G
But I know how to lose you

Em      D       C       G
Don't think I'll ever find love again
Em      D       G
But I know how to lose you
