“You Don’t Know” by Rashida Jones Chords and Lyrics

Rashida Jones “You Don’t know”

I was waiting on the movie Sylvia to come on and a movie, Monogamy, was ending.  Rashida Jones, pictured here, was playing an acoustic version of this song. You can here her play it here on YouTube. I was so moved by the song, I wanted to post it.  The chords are a simple C to F and back to C progression.

C                                  Fimages

There was once a boy, nine years old
C                            F
Wanted a girl to have and hold
C                                 F
There was once a girl, she was out there too
C
Told the boy, I’m going to marry you
C                                      F
You don’t know what I can do
Gonna be the one to fill my shoes (C)
You don’t know what I can be (F)
Gonna be the one who looks like me (C)

There was once a girl, nine years old,
She wanted a boy to have and hold
There was once a boy, he was out there too
Said to the girl, I’m gonna marry you.

You don’t know what I can do,
Gonna be the one to fill my shoes,
You don’t know what I can be
Gonna be the one who looks like me.

I don’t want to let you down
But I gotta let you go,
Don’t want to talk about what we did or didn’t know
There’s nothing left to do
There’s nothing left to say
Never really lived here anyway.

You don’t know what I can do,
Gonna be the one to fill my shoes,
You don’t know what I can be
Gonna be the one who looks like me.

What’cha want
What’cha what’cha want now (fades)
