DON'T PASS ME BY
written by Ringo Starr


C
I listen for your footsteps coming up the drive
F
Listen for your footsteps but they don't arrive
G7
Waiting for your knock dear on my own front door
F C
I don't hear it. Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

I hear the clock a-ticking on the mantel shelf
See the hands a-moving but I'm by myself
I wonder where you are tonight, why I'm by myself
I don't see you. Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

C
Don't pass me by don't make me cry don't make me blue
F
'Cause you know darlin I love only you
C
You never know it hurt me so. I'l hate to see you go
G F C
Don't pass me by. Don't make me cry

Sorry that I doubted you I was so unfair
You were in a car crash and you lost your hair
You said that you would be late about an hour or two
Said "that's alright, I'm waiting here just waiting to hear from you"

Don't pass me by don't make me cry don't make me blue
'Cause you know darlin I love only you
You never know it hurt me so. I'l hate to see you go
Don't pass me by. Don't make me cry

Don't pass me by don't make me cry don't make me blue
'Cause you know darlin I love only you
You never know it hurt me so. I'l hate to see you go
Don't pass me by. Don't make me cry
