(Original Key: Ebm)


Intro:

Dm  Dsus4, Dm  Dsus4  Dm (x5)

Verse 1:

       Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew,
           A                G
'Bout your plans to make me blue.
                Dm      Dsus4   Dm
With some other guy you knew be-fore,
                  A                G
Between two of us guys, you know I loved you more.

Bridge 1:

G                  Bm            G
 It took me by sur-prise, I must say,
       Dm               G
When I found out yester-day. Don't you know that:

Chorus 1:

  Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
I heard it through the grape-vine;
         A                         G
Not much longer, would you be mine.
      Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        A                     G                   Dm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.

Break:

   Dm
(I heard it through the grapevine,
                          Dsus4 Dm       Dsus4  Dm, Dsus4, Dm
Not much longer would you be    my baby).

Verse 2:

         Dm            Dsus4    Dm
I know a man ain't sup-posed to cry,
          A                      G
But these tears, I can't hold in-side.
       Dm                Dsus4     Dm
Losing you, would end my life, you see,
         A                 G
'Cos you mean that much to me.

Bridge 2:

G               Bm           G
 You could have told me your-self,
         Dm            G
That you loved someone else.

Chorus 2:

           Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
Instead, I heard it through the grape-vine;
         G
Not much longer would you be mine.
      Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        A                     G                   Dm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.

Break:

   Dm
(I heard it through the grapevine,
                          Dsus4 Dm       Dsus4  Dm, Dsus4, Dm
Not much longer would you be    my baby).

Interlude:

Dm  Dsus4, Dm  Dsus4  Dm (x5)

Verse 3:

Dm
 People say; believe half of what you see,
         A                G
Son, and none of what you hear.
            Dm
But I can't help, but be con-fused,
        A                     G
If it's true, please tell me, dear.

Bridge 3:

       Bm             G
Do you plan to let me go,
              Dm               G 
For the other guy you loved be-fore?

Chorus 3:

  Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
I heard it through the grape-vine;
         A                         G
Not much longer, would you be mine.
      Dm                   Dsus4 Dm
Oh, I heard it through the grape-vine;
        A                     G                   Dm
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah.

Break:

   Dm
(I heard it through the grapevine,
                          Dsus4 Dm       Dsus4  Dm, Dsus4, Dm
Not much longer would you be    my baby).
