Intro: G D A F#m D A D A D A
Well, me and Frank we're the best of friends,
D                             A
And our friendship will never end,
But it would hurt him so for him to know,
A                 A7 Dmaj7    D
That I'm in love with his girlfriend.

Now, the love of a girl and the love of a friend,
Are two things you can't compare,
G                        D6
Though my heart will ache I will let it break,
        A                       D
Cause I know that it just ain't fair,
         A7   A                     D
So go on home girl, let's call it a night,
              A                          D
You better go home girl, this just ain't right.

But before you go I want you to know,
That I love you, yes I do,
G                                      Dmaj7
And though it breaks my heart for us to part,
        A                    Dmaj7 D A D A
Still I know Frank loves you too.

Well, you say that a we can make him see,
D                            A
We have a love that's really real,
But I think that he is just like me,
                A7  A    D
And I know just how he'd feel.

Darling, people know it would hurt him so,
D                            G
If you told him that it must end,
G                          D
And I could never hold the love I stole,
          A6              D     A
From a man I call my best friend.
A               D                         G6 A Em7
Go on home girl, you better go home, girl,
       A                    D
Go on home, you better move on.

Break: G D A Em A D G D A D Em A D Dmaj7 D

Me and Frank been friends for so long,
D                            A
And our friendship is really strong,
He gives me his car to go for a ride,
Never knows how long I'll be gone.

Well, I'm trying to forget all the things that we've done,
D                                  Gmaj7
While Frank is just a-waiting back home,
Gmaj7                          D
Girl you can't go ride with me anymore,
           A7                          D A D A D G D
That's the way it's got to be from now on.
       A             D7 Em7 A
Better go home, girl, 
        D                    G D
Now you better move on, girl,
       A            Em D  Em7 Bm A
Better go home, girl,
    D                    G D
You better move on, girl,
          F#m   A    Em7 Bm A
Better go home, girl,
    D                    G D
You better move on, girl,
          A         Em7 A6
Better go home, girl,
                D        G D A Em Bm7 A D G
You better move on, girl.
