Capo 1st fret
Intro: Dm

       Dm
Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
           A7               G
'Bout your plans to make me blue
                Dm
With some other guy you knew before
                      A7                        G
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
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
         G
Not much longer would you be mine
      Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
        G                                         Dm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah

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

                      Dm
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
         G
Not much longer would you be mine
      Dm
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
        G                                         Dm
And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, well

                   Dm
People say believe half of what you see
         A7               G
Son, and none of what you hear
            Dm
But I can't help bein' confused
        A7                  G
If it's true please tell me dear
       Bm             G                Dm              G
Do you plan to let me go for the other guy you loved before?

                 Dm
Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
         G
Not much longer would you be mine
        Dm
Baby, I heard it through the grapevine
         G                                         Dm
Ooh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah

Honey, honey, I know that you're lettin' me go
Said I heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine (Repeat and fade)
