"Make It Easy On Yourself"

(Burt Bacharach - Hal David)

[Note: This arrangement is from the Walker Brothers' 1965 hit. Yes, I know

that Jerry Butler and Dionne Warwick both recorded it earlier...]



	C#m7     F#m7     Dmaj7   Bm7/E
	 / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	    Dmaj7         Bm7 E7             Amaj7  B13      B7  1
	Oh, breaking up is so    very hard to do   [797897] [79780x]

Verse 1:

	E              C#m

	If you really love him

	E                  C#m       C#
	And there's nothing I can do

	       E                       E+
	Don't try to spare my feelings

	                         C#m7    Bm7/E
	Just tell me that we're through

Chorus 1:

	    Bm7 Bm7/E C#m7        F#m7
	And make it   easy on yourself

	Dmaj7 Bm7/E   C#m7        F#m7
	      Make it easy on yourself

	       Dmaj7         Bm7 E7             Amaj7
	'Cause breaking up is so    very hard to do

	[1: B13 B7  2: Bm7/E  3: to coda  4: to string tag]

Verse 2:

	And if the way I hold him
	Can't compare to his caress
	No words of consolation
	Will make me miss you less

Chorus 2:

	My darling, if this is goodbye
	I just know I'm gonna cry
	So run to him
	Before you start crying too

[repeat chorus 1]


	(Amaj7)  C#m7     Dmaj7 C#m7/E                Amaj7  Bm7/E
