D At a quarter to midnight she was pacing the floor, A Asking herself, 'What am I loving him for? D G He's been out on the town six nights in a row, D A D If this is how its gonna be, I'd be better off alone'. As she walked to her car the night was cold and still, A She thought to herself, 'I'll drive up to Lover's Hill D G And I'll tell each and every star how this man has done me wrong, D A D And I'm sure they'll agree I'd be better off alone'. G A D Mmmmmm, better off alone. D He was closing the store as the clock was striking twelve, A He'd been working extra hours, he was proud of himself. D G To surprise her with a ring, he'd worked his fingers to the bone, D A D He joked to his boss, 'I'd be better off alone'. Now the road to his house went right by Lover's Hill, A When he saw her car parked there, well his heart, it just stood still. D G 'What could she be doing? God, I hope I'm wrong, D A D If she's there with someone else, I'd be better off alone'. G A D Mmmmmm, better off alone. G A Bm A Mmmmmm, better off alone. E He parked his car beside her, got out and cut the lights, B She rolled down her window and looked up in surprise. E A When he saw that she'd been crying, he said 'Babe, what's going on'? E B E And through her tears she whispered, 'I'd be better off alone'. Then he kissed her through the window, and wiped away her tears, B Told her 'bout his secret, and she told him 'bout her fears. E A He said, 'We'll get your car tomorrow, come on, I'll drive you home. E B E The way that I'm feeling, we'd be better off alone'. A B E Mmmmmm, better off alone. A B E Mmmmmm, better off alone. A B E Mmmmmm, better off alone. A B E Mmmmmm, better off alone.
