       A LESSON IN LEAVING   Jo Dee Messina

CHORUS I:
C
Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in leaving
C
Somebody's gonna give you back what you're been giving
            F                               G
And I hope that I'm around   To watch 'em knock you down
C
It's like you to love 'em and leave 'em
C
Just like you to love me and leave me
                           F                      G
it's like you to do that sort of thing  over and over again
                       C
You're a fool hearted man

                     F                               C
I hear you're been asking about me from some of my friends
                     F                                 G
Well, you better be-lieve I'm not going through that again
(G)                 F                           G 
You're the kind of man a woman thinks she can change
             F                
Oh but the only thing changing is my way of thinking 
(F)                                  G
And I'm thinking that maybe some day-a     go to chorus II

CHORUS II:
C
Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in losing
C
Somebody's gonna do to you what you've been doing
            F                             G
And I hope that I'm around to watch 'em knock you down
C        
Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in hurting
C
Somebody's gonna leave you with our fire burning
           F                              G
No way to put it out Baby There ain't no doubt
(G)                    C     
You're a fool hearted man

Go to lead, 
(G)                 F                           G 
You're the kind of man a woman thinks she can change
             F                
Oh but the only thing changing is my way of thinking 
(F)                                  G
And I'm thinking that maybe some day-a     go to chorus II

And I hope that I'm around   To watch 'em knock you down
