Too busy being in love
By: Doug Stone

Key of D
Intro: D G A G A

D G F#m
If I would take a little time to write down a few lines
G A D
Every time that you cross this heart of mine
D G F#m
And put them all in a book, how much time would that have took
G A
The words and years have a way of slipping by
Bm A D Bm G A
Oh no, too bad, there goes the chance that I had

Chorus:
D Bm G A
I could have written a play so sweet and so funny
D Bm G A
Given old Mr. Shakespeare a run for his money
Bm A G
Written the words to the prettiest tune
D G A
That would never leave a dry eye in the room
Bm G A Bm
My only excuse for not doing that
G D A Bm
Well I was too busy being in love,
G D A D G A G A
Yes, I was too busy being in love.

D G F#m
Brand new phrases appear every time you are near
G A D
All these words you inspire after all these years
G F#m
But I never reach for a pen, break the mood that I’m in
G A
Before I knew it the words were gone again
Bm A D Bm G A
Oh no, too bad, there goes the chance that I had

Chorus

G A D Bm G A
I could have written a poem to make young lovers crazy
D Bm G A
Could have written a movie for Hepburn and Tracy
Bm A G
A beautiful song and it starts with your name
D G A
Written my way into fortune and fame
Bm G A Bm
But I have no regrets for not doing that
G D A Bm
Well I was too busy being in love,
G D A D G A G A D
Yes I was too busy being in love.
