        TOO BUSY BEING IN LOVE    Doug Stone

Intro chords  D F#m G A A7 D

D                   G                        A
If I had taken the time to write down a few lines
       A7             G            A   A7  D 
Every time that you crossed this heart of mine
D                      G                                   A
And put them all in a book How much time would that have took
A                  A7           G            A   A7   D
The words and the years have a way of just slip-ping by

CHORUS:

   Em  A      D  G           Em       A     
Oh no    too bad   There goes  the chance that I had
                D                G            A
I could have written a play so sweet and so funny
       D                    G            A
Given old Mr. Shakespear a run for his money
Bm            A            G        Em 
Written the words to the prettiest tune
D                   A         G          A  A7  
That would never leave a dry eye in the room
Bm                      Em     D
My only excuse for not doing enough
Em         F#m   Em       D      Em         F#m  Em        D  D F#m G A A7 D     
I was too busy being in love Yes I was too busy being in love

D                  G                        A
Brightly phrases appear everytime you are near
A7                     G           A   A7     D
All these words you inspire after all these years
D                            G                        A
But I never reached for the pen break the mood I was in
A         A7           G          A  A7 D
Before I knew it the words were gone a-gain  Woo ooooo

Go to chorus

                D                     G           A
I could have written a poem to make young lovers crazy
                D                   G          A
I could have written a movie for Hepburn and Tracy
Bm            A            G              Em
A beautiful song and it starts with your name
D                      G        A
Written my way into riches and fame
    Bm                         Em      D
But I have no regrets for not doing enough
Em         F#m  Em        D      Em         F#m  Em        D  
I was too busy being in love yes I was too busy being in love
