Hard to Explain

Ray Agee
as performed by Cowboy Junkies


[Bm] [F#7] [Bm7] [Em] [Bm] [Bm7] [G7] [F#7] [Bm7]

[Bm7] If it ain't one thing,
I'll tell you it's always another
[Em] I wonder why
[Bm] I started treatin' you [Bm7] like a step brother
[G7] love is hard to [F#7] explain,
I know my [Bm7] loss is someone else's gain

[Bm7] Sometimes love is like a bitter pill,
but we just have to take it like it is
[Em] sometimes love is the sweetest
[Bm] thing, sometimes [Bm7] it's just naked pain
[G7] oh it's so [F#7] hard to explain,
I know my [Bm7] loss is someone else's gain

[Bm7] My troubles started when I found you,
that's when I built my world around you
[Em] and now my livin' ain't so easy
[Bm] but I thought that's what a woman was [Bm7] supposed to do
[G7] see it's so [F#7] hard to explain,
I know my [Bm7] loss is someone else's gain

[Bm7] I went to see my doctor,
'cuz I thought I had a hole in my heart but he said
[Em] Girl, you're just wastin' my time because some man
[Bm] When he messed up he messed up your [Bm7] mind,
it's [G7] so hard to ex- [F#7] plain,
I know my [Bm7] loss is someone else's gain

[Bm7] Love is so hard to explain,
it'll make ya forget your own name
[Em] it'll turn you upside down
[Bm] it'll make you wish [Bm7] that you never been found [G7] [F#7] [Bm7]

Tabbed by bbkim: A personal favorite, it's a blues tune that works best if you play all barre chords, except the Em of course:

Bm  = 224432
F#7 = 242322
Bm7 = 224232
Em  = 022000
G7  = 353433
