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


    [ 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


[ 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


    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 ]
