INTRO: G Bm C Bm Am G (x2)

#1.
G     Bm                   C             G    C  Bm Am 
Oper..ator, well could you help me place this call..
Am                     D                   Em   D C Bm Am
see, the number on the matchbook is old an faded.
G                 Bm          C                   G   Bm Am C
She's living in L.A., with my best old ex-friend, Ray.
Am                    D7                  Em   D C Bm D
Guy she said she knew well, and sometimes hated.

CHORUS:
    G              C               G                  C
But isn't that the way they say it goes..but let's forget
    D                     G         Am               C   D
all that..and give me the number if you can find it..so, I
    Em           D             Em          C              D
can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show..I've overcome
    C                     Em      G            Am      C
the blow..I've learned to take it well..I only wish my words
              G                     C           D
could just convince myself..that it just wasn't real..but
C                     G     Bm C Bm Am G
that's not the way it feels.

#2.
G     Bm                   C                  G    C Bm Am 
Oper..ator, well could you help me place this call..
      Am               D                    Em      D C Bm Am
Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me.
G                       Bm                C             G
There's something in my eyes..you know it happens every time.
  Am              D7                        Em     D C Bm D
I think about the love that I thought would save me.

CHORUS:
    G              C               G                  C
But isn't that the way they say it goes..but let's forget
    D         G                     Am               C   D
all that..and give me the number if you can find it..so, I
    Em           D             Em          C              D
can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show..I've overcome
    C                     Em      G            Am      C
the blow..I've learned to take it well..I only wish my words
              G                     C           D
could just convince myself..that it just wasn't real..but
C                     G                      C
that's not the way it feels..no, no, no, no..that's not the
       G
way it feels.

#3.
G     Bm             C              G   C Bm Am 
Oper..ator, let's forget about this call.
        Am             D                Em      D C Bm Am
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to.
G                  Bm                    C  
Thank you for your time..oh, you've been so much 
          G   C Bm   Am      D7       Em   D C Bm Am 
more than kind.......you can keep the dime.

CHORUS:
    G              C               G                  C
But isn't that the way they say it goes..but let's forget
    D         G                     Am               C   D
all that..and give me the number if you can find it..so, I
    Em           D             Em          C              D
can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show..I've overcome
    C                     Em      G            Am      C
the blow..I've learned to take it well..I only wish my words
              G                     C           D
could just convince myself..that it just wasn't real..but
C                     G                      
that's not the way it feels..
