I Tried
Recorded by Ricky Nelson
Written by Jerry Fuller

C Am C Am
I tried I tried

C Am
You said to go out and find another girl well I tried
C Am
Yes I looked all over this world and I tried
C E7
Some were pretty some even rich
F F#m
Still you know I'd rather fight than switch
C G7 C
Cause each lonely day that I've been away I've cried

F Em F Em
I tried to forget you leave my past behind
F Em D7 G7
I tried oh and yet you seem to always be here on my mind

C Am
When you told me you never cared you lied
C Am
Don't deny at times you were oh so satisfied
C E7
I always knew that our love could be
F F#m
If you'd only gone about it like me
C G7 C
I did the one thing you never seem to do I tried

repeat #2,3

Am C Am C
I tried I tried I tried baby I tried
Am C Am C
I tried baby I tried I tried baby I tried
