“Fool that I Am” by Rita Coolidge: Chords & Lyrics

I’ve always loved this song since I heard it years ago in Grandy’s having a lunch with a friend, Robert Ables, in Columbia SC. ¬†Coolidge had just (or was going through) a divorce with Kris Kristofferson when the song was published. Here’s the chords and lyrics. A video recording of the song is below. I’m working on my own arrangement for my show.

“Fool that I Am”

G D
Oh, I tried to make the best of
G C (walk down)
All the sweet love that you gave me
Am (walk up to C)
Maybe I’m crazy
C B7 Em
But I keep on losing ground

C D G
Fool that I am, fool that I may be
Am D G
When will I ever know what’s true
C B7 Em
And if I found out differently
Am D G
Would I still love you?

Two hearts breakin’, two hearts achin’
Someone’s takin’ more than they gave
Trusting in someone
Who has no trust in me

Fool that I am, fool that I may be
When will I ever know what’s true
And if I found out differently
Would I still love you?

ROBERTS, BRUCE / SAGER, CAROLE BAYER
