ARTIST: Jim Croce
TITLE: Lover's Cross
Lyrics and Chords

Guess that it was bound to happen
Was just a matter of time
But now I've come to my decision
And it's one of the painful kind

/ C Am Dm G7 / / / C - Am - /

'Cause now it seems that you wanted a martyr
Just a regular guy wouldn't do
But baby I can't hang upon the lover's cross for you

/ F G Am - / F C Dm G7 / C Am Dm G7 C - - - /

Yes, I really got to hand it to you
'Cause girl, you really tried
But for every time that we spent laughing
There were two times that I cried

And you were tryin' to make me your martyr
And that's the one thing I just couldn't do
'Cause baby, I can't hang upon the lover's cross for you

'Cause tables are meant for turnin'
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burnin' 
When the people and mem'ries they join aren't the same

/ F G Am Em / F C Dm G7 / :

So I'll hope that you can find another
Who can take what I could not
He'll have to be a super guy
Or maybe a super god

'Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't bout to start nothin' new
And baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you
