   Went to the fortune teller

And had my fortune read

I didn't know what to tell her

I left there in a hurry
B      |E       E     D   D |B   A B|
Lookin' forward to my big surprise
   |E    E   D D |B  B    A
The next day I discovered
B       |E       E      D    D |B   A  B|
That the fortune teller told me lies

I hurried back down to that woman
As mad as I could be
I told her I didn't see nobody
And that she made a fool out of me

|E    D        |B      B   A  B
 Then something struck me
  |E               D  |B    A  B|
As if it came from up above
     |E              D      |B     
While lookin' at the fortune teller
A B      |D5     |     
I fell in love
