She wore a blue dress when she walked in the room
G          C               Am                  D
And in her eyes the look I saw was filled with gloom
G           Am                Em             A
Is this the question I would answer all too soon
C              D                        C G D
Come tell your friend what's wrong with you
G             C       C/B  Am      D
Why don't you call me your baby anymore
G       C                C/B      Am             D
Am I so changed from some strange love that went before
G           Am                  Em                 A
Is this the change of mind that I've been designed for
C            D    C G  D
Why not your baby anymore
G              C               Am                  D
Those words we spoke they only seemed to block our way
G               C           Am                       D
The truth rang out when you called me and called my name
G            Am         Em           A
I don't know what I can do or I can say
C              D             C  G D
Your good friends also find a way

SOLO

G             C       C/B  Am       D
Why don't you call me your baby anymore
G       C                 C/B      Am               D
Am I so changed from some strange love that went before
G           Am             Em                      A
Is this the change of mind that I've been designed for
C            D    C  G D   G
Why not your baby anymore
