Spare Me The Details

[ capo 4 ]

/ E - B A / : throughout, except bridge

[ rhythm pattern - &1& &2& &3& etc. ]
My girlfriend, my dumb donut
Went out to a party just the other night
But 3 hours later and 7 shots of Jäger,
She was in the bedroom with another guy

    {refrain}
    [ big folk strum ]
    And I don't really want to know
    So don't tell me anymore
    And I really don't want to hear
    About her feet all up in the air

    [ rhythm ]
    And well, I'm not the one who acted like a ho
    Why must I be the one who has to know?
    I'm not the one who messed up big time
    So spare me the details, if you don't mind

Now I can understand friends who want to tell me
Think they're gonna help me open up my eyes
But the play-by-play makes me want to lose it
Every time you do it, man, it turns the knife

{refrain}
[ end on big E, building into the bridge ]

        [ power ]
        Now I don't need to hear about the sounds they were making
        And I don't need to hear about how long he was taking
        Or how the walls, they were shaking, whoa!
        
        / C#m F#m B G#m / C#m F#m B - / A - /

[ bass only? ]
Now I'm lying in bed, wallowing in sorrow
Missing the tomorrow that we could have had
Running through my head, over and over
Things I never told her now just make me sad

[ rhythm, looser vocals ]
And it drives me insane, sitting with a vision
Stuck with that image burned into my brain
And I feel so dumb that I could ever trust her
But someone else fucked her, then he walked away

{refrain}

    Because I don't want to know
Spare me the details if you don't mind
    Don't want to know
Spare me the details if you don't mind
[ repeat until done ]
