<p>It's Happening to You - John Prine</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;John Prine cover</p>
<p>&nbsp;Year: 1993</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;Intro:</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Well it's the same old song</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Boy meets girl</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;And girl meets boy</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They carry on</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They close their eyes</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;And kiss until the world is gone</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Oh yes it's true</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;You know what they say</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They pledge their love forever</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Then they add a day</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They hold their hands so tight</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;In the fear</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;That one might stray</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Oh yes it's true</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;Chorus:</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;I loved her</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;She loved me too</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;We had a lot of love</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Now it's all through</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;And for a while</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Their hearts beat one</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;As they match each other</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Smile for smile</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They dance away the night</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;As they praise</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;The others style</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Oh yes it's true</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;(Repeat Chorus)</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Well it's the same old song</p>
<p>&nbsp;<strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Boy meets girl</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;And girl meets boy</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They carry on</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>G</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;They close their eyes</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;And kiss until the world is gone</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<strong>A</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Oh yes it's true</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>A</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>D</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;It's happening to you</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
