INTRO


    C                      G
She left without leaving a number,
         C                   G
Said she needed to clear her mind.
   C             D            Em
He figured she'd gone back to Austin,
           C                       D
'Cause she talked about it all the time.
G/B             C            D
It was almost a year, before she called him up.
G/B                C      
Three rings and an answering machine,
Dsus        D
Is what she got:


          G                 Em
If you're calling 'bout the car, I sold it.
C                  Dsus       D
If this is Tuesday night, I'm bowling.
Em                         G                         C
If you've got something to sell, you're wastin' your time,
        Dsus   D
I'm not buyin'.
       G       Am7                G
If its anybody else, wait for the tone,
                 C  
You know what to do.
Am      F             Dsus   D
  And P.S, if this is Austin...
        C         G   C   G
I still love you.



    C                     G              
The telephone fell to the counter.
      C                         G
She'd heard, but she couldn't believe.
C            D         Em
What kind of man would hang on that long,
C                           D
What kind of love that must be.
G/B              C              D
She waited three days, and then she tried again.
G/B                        C
She didn't know what she'd say,
        Dsus                  D
But she heard three rings and then:


        G                 Em
If it's Friday night, I'm at the ballgame,
    C                   Dsus    D
And first thing Saturday, if it don't rain.
Em                    G                 C                Dsus  D
I'm headed out to the lake, and I'll be gone all weekend long.
         G                  Am     
But I'll call you back when I get home
   G           C    
On Sunday afternoon.
Am      F             Dsus    D
  And P.S, if this is Austin...
        G
I still love you.


     Am 
Well this time she left her number,
    Em
But not another word.
         Eb             
Then she waited by the phone on Sunday evening,
Dsus                  D       Dsus  D 
  And this is what he heard:


          Aadd9          F#m
If you're calling 'bout my heart,

Its still yours.
D                 Esus    E
  I should listen to it a little more.
F#m                     E           D
  Then it wouldn't have taken me so long
               E
To know, where I belong.
    A             Bm7            A                    D
And by the way boy, this is no machine you're talkin' to.
Bm          G                 Esus    E
  Can't you tell that this is Austin...
            D         A   D   A
And I still love you.
        D          A  D   A
I still love you....

-reeldeal4 | 9/20/2003
fingerpicking or strumming?
-jtholobaugh | 1/17/2004
Great tab! I think there's just a few modifications to the chorus though:

CHORUS (Changes apply to 2nd Chorus too):
G Em
If you're calling 'bout the car, I sold it.
C Dsus D
If this is Tuesday night, I'm bowling.
Em D
If you've got something to sell,
C
you're wastin' your time,
Dsus D
I'm not buyin'.
G Am7 Bm
If its anybody else, wait for the tone,
C C-C/B-Am
You know what to do.
F Dsus D
And P.S, if this is Austin...
C G C G
I still love you.


THIRD CHORUS:
A(add9) F#m
If you're calling 'bout my heart,

Its still yours.
D Esus E
I should've listened to it a little more.
F#m E D
Then it wouldn't have taken me so long
E
To know, where I belong.
A Bm7
And by the way boy,
C#m D D-D/C#-D
This is no machine you're talkin' to.
Bm G Esus E
Can't you tell that this is Austin...
D A D A
And I still love you.
D A D A
I still love you....

Great Song PERFECT

-JoshHubbard | 11/7/2004
i also give it a 10, a fricken 10
-Billybob4x4 | 11/8/2004
This song is awseome, but curfingil must be on crack, because the song is great the way it is.
-Blischke | 1/25/2005
I've got to agree with the guy who made the changes. There are some spots that are way off. Try singing with it.
-sgtporter44 | 3/16/2005
what is the strumming pattern for this song
-zchamballin56 | 8/28/2005
Can't imagine it being any better.
-bbarker | 10/31/2005
I agree with curfingil on the first change but on the second one I think it is like this:
G Am7 G/B
If it's anybody else, wait for the tone

Playing a G doesn't sound right in either place. If you play along with the song you will hear it.
-ChiefKomosakawa | 11/2/2005
You are completely insane
-larryamiller | 1/22/2006
you guys that suggested changes need to get ears.... axhappy got it spot on
-austinax | 6/30/2008
For the intro, try playing with Cadd9 instead of just a C. It sounds better, and from watching a live version of the song, that's how Blake plays it. As a mattter of fact, just playing the song with Cadd9 instead of C makes the song sound better.

But awesome chords you layed out for us!
-AWesker | 7/2/2010
In the Chorus
G Em D C
If it's anybody else wait for the tone u know what to do
G Am F D
P.S. if this is Austin
