Tried So Hard

 

written by Gene Clark

 

D
Stopped awhile this morning on my way back home
         A
I had to realize this time that I'd be all alone
             Em                             G
Cause she is moving somewhere far away  not slow
             D        A       E
And though I tried so hard to please her
D            A             G   D
She said she really had to go
D
Even though this time it really hurts me bad
               A
I've been thru similarities it's not the first break I've had
      Em                                  G
And I just can't let it bring me down too low
             D        A       E
And though I tried so hard to please her
D             A                 G
There must be something more to know

Bm
Never thought that we would wind up in this way
   F#m
It seemed  that everything was going fine
Bm
Still with all the things that I can do or say
         D                                 E     G    D
It won't change the fate I know so well is mine

SOLO

D
So I'll stop again and look right past the pain
           A
Cause I've been in love before and I can love again
             Em                            G
While she is moving somewhere far away not slow
             D        A       E
And though I tried so hard to please her
D            A             G    D
She said she really had to go
