Intro: Dm

     Dm                                         A7               G
Ooh, bet you're wonderin' how I knew 'bout your plans to make me blue
                Dm                                              A7                        G
With some other guy that you knew before, between the two of us guys, you know I love you more
                 Bm            G           Dm              G
It took me by surprise, I must say, when I found out yesterday

       Dm                                       G
Ooh, I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be mine
       Dm                                     G
Ooh, I heard it through the grapevine and I'm just about to lose my mind
              Dm
Honey, honey, yeah

         Dm                                  A7                   G
I know a man ain't supposed to cry but these tears I can't hold inside
       Dm                                         A7                G
Losin' you would end my life, you see, 'cause you mean that much to me
               Bm          G             Dm            G
You could have told me yourself that you found someone else

          Dm                                       G
Instead I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be mine
       Dm                                     G
Ooh, I heard it through the grapevine and I'm just about to lose my mind
              Dm
Honey, honey yeah

                Dm                            A7                G
People say you "Hear from what you see, na na not from what you hear."
        Dm                               A7                      G
I can't help but bein' confused. If it's true, won't you tell me dear?
       Bm             G                Dm                  G
Do you plan to let me go for the other guy that you knew before?

       Dm                                      G
Ooh, I Heard it through the grapevine Not much longer would you be mine
       Dm                                     G
Ooh, I heard it through the grapevine and I'm just about to lose my mind
              Dm
Honey, honey, yeah
