Intro note F G# Bb

Bb
Don't tell me the reason that you're calling  
       Eb                                     Bb
Is to see if I'm all right since you've been gone.
   F                 			Bb	
'Cause I know you and I know why we're talking
Eb	                                    F
You're wanting me to say I'm barely hanging on
       Eb             F   Eb              F      F#          F              Bb  
Well, maybe that was true for a night or two But now, I got better things to do

CHORUS:
                 Eb                                                Bb
I could         wash my car in the rain     Change my new guitar strings
                                           Eb
Mow the yard just the same as I did yesterday
Eb                        Bb               F F#          F              Bb
I don't need to waste my time crying over you    I got better things to do.


Bb                                        Eb                           Bb
Maybe when I don't have so much going   Or quite so many irons in the fire
F                                            Bb
I'll take the time to miss you like you're hoping
    Eb                                      F
But now, I can't put forth the effort it requires
           Eb             F              Eb            F
Well, I'd love to talk to you, but then, I'd miss Donahue
         F#           F              Bb
That's right, I got better things to do.
go to chorus
  Eb                                             Bb
Check the air in my tires  Straighten my stereo wires
Bb                                                Eb
Count the stars in the sky or just get on with my life
Eb                        Bb               F
I don't need to waste my time crying over you
F#         F              Bb  F#         F               Bb
   I got better things to do      I got better things to do.
