Capo first fret

       Dm
Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
           A7               G
About 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
Don't you know that I

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

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

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

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

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby, I heard it through the grapevine
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)
