E               D           A              D
 Won't you come see about me? I'll be alone, dancing you know it, baby
E             D                   A                    D
 Tell me your troubles and doubts giving me everything inside and out and
E                  D                 A                          D
 Love's strange so real in the dark, think of the tender things that we were working on
E                D            A                    D
 Slow change may pull us apart when the light gets into your heart, baby

E         D              A  D
 Don't you forget about me. Don't, don't, don't, don't
E         D              A
 Don't you forget about me

C                        G
Will you stand above me? Look my way, never love me
D                                     A
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling down, down, down
C                      G
Will you recognise me? Call my name or walk on by
D                                     A
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling down, down, down, down

E          D                A                     D
 Don't you try and pretend, it's my feeling we'll win in the end
       E            D                    A             D
I won't harm you or touch your defenses, vanity and security
E             D             A              D
 Don't you forget about me, I'll be alone, dancing you know it, baby
E         D              A                   D
 Going to take you apart, I'll put us back together at heart, baby

E         D              A  D
 Don't you forget about me. Don't, don't, don't, don't
E         D              A  D
 Don't you forget about me
               E  D                 A     D
As you walk on by, will you call my name?
               E  D                 A     D
As you walk on by, will you call my name?
               E  D  A  D
When you walk away
                  E  D  A  D
Or will you walk away?
                 E  D  A                   D
Will you walk on by?     Come on - call my name
E                 D                 A     D
 Will you call my name?
       E        D  A  D
I say, la la la         (Repeat la's and fade)
