      IT WAS TOO LATE             Dawn Sears

Slow strum on B7  E B7 E
         E
He had good intentions and that ain't bad
        B7                                   E
But he never followed through on a word he said
              A                                       E
He kept me waiting to long and that's where he went wrong
     B7                                    A
The sun was coming up when he came in He swore it'd never happen again
    E                 B7                 E
He got home early to-day but it was too late
CHORUS:
           A
As I was packing him up from one to two
      E                
The fool didn't know he was fixin' to move
      B7                                             E  
From three to four I put everything he owned by the door
    A 
By five I'd thrown his pictures away
    E                           A 
At six I knew exactly what I'd say-ay yeah
         E                 B7                  E
Well he got home early to-day but it was too late        Lead
                 E
Well you know I never could stand to see a grown man cry
       B7                               E
But I sure had a ball telling him good-bye
        A                              E
He was down on his knees beggin baby please
B7         
He thought those tears would change my mind
               A
But when he ticked me off he ran out of time
E                 B7                  E
Got home early to-day but it was too late
Chorus, lead  A E B7 E, key change
