Intro:
Cm Cm D7 D7 Gm Gm Gm 

Gm                    Cm    D7
Lonely table just for one     
                        Gm  
In a bright and crowded room
                      Cm     D7
While the music has begun      
                             Gm  
I drink to memories  in the gloom
           Gm     
Though the music's
          Cm     D7
Still the same     
                        G   
It has a bittersweet refrain

    G                   
So play the song the way
           D7
It used to be
  D7                       
Before she left and changed
          G      
It all to sadness
    C                       
And maybe   if she's passing
       G     
By the window
         G        D7       
She will hear   a love song
      D7  G 
And a melody
    C                      
And even   if the words are
       G     
Not so tender
         G          D     
She will always   remember
                   Gm  Eb Abm
The way it used to be        

Abm                       C#m   Eb7
Friends stop by and say hello      
      Eb7                Abm 
And I laugh and hide the pain
                          C#m   Eb7
It's quite easy 'til they go       
                      Ab  
Then the song begins again

    Ab                  
So play the song the way
           Eb
It used to be
  Eb                       
Before she left and changed
          Ab     
It all to sadness
    C#                      
And maybe   if she's passing
       Ab    
By the window
         Ab       Eb       
She will hear   a love song
     Eb7  Ab
And a melody
    C#                     
And even   if the words are
       Ab    
Not so tender
                  Eb    
She will always remember
    Eb               Ab
The way it used  to  be
