      TRACKS OF MY TEARS   Linda Ronstradt  

A       D           Bm           E   
People say I'm the life of the party 
  A             D            F#m  OPEN  E  A
Cause I tell a joke or two
               A          D     Bm       E       
All though I might be laughing loud and hearty
  A     D             F#m  OPEN  E  A 
Deep inside I'm blue

CHORUS:
           A     D         Bm
So take a good look at my face
              A     D            Bm
You know my smile looks out of place
              A           D      Bm
If you look closer it's easy to trace
       E           A
The tracks of my tears

       D
Oh, I need you (need you), need you

A           D            Bm             E 
Since you left me if you see me with another guy
A             D              F#m  OPEN  E  A
lookin' like I'm havin' fun
E                   D          Bm            E    
I know it might be cute, he's just a substitute because..
A             D           F#m  OPEN  E  A
you're the permanent one

go to chorus

  A    D
(Out-side)  I'm masqueradin'
  A   D
(In-side)  My heart's a-fadin'
  A           D
(I'm just a clown)  since you put me down
F#m                                                  E
My smile is my makeup I wear since my break up with you

Baby take a real good
