                Hanging On The Telephone by Blondie

Standard tuning

N.C.                              Eb 

I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall

Gm                             Eb 

If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall

Gm                     Eb               

I know he's there, but I just got to call

               Eb             Cm   Gm 

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

               Eb             Cm   Gm 

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

Gm                            Eb

I heard your mother now she's going out the door

Gm                    Eb

Did she go to work or just go to the store?

Gm                            Eb

All those things she said, I told you to ignore

                 Cm            Gm      

Oh, why can't we talk again

                 Cm            Gm      

Oh, why can't we talk again

                 Cm 

Oh, why can't we talk again

               Cm             Bb   Gm 

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

               Cm             Bb   Gm 

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

N.C.                              Eb 

It's good to hear your voice, you know it's been so long

Gm                            Eb 

If I don't get your call then everything goes wrong

Gm                           Eb 

I want to tell you something you've known all along

               Eb             Cm   Gm 

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

[Thought I'd better put the solo in since it absolutely rocks.]

N.C.                   Eb 

I had to interrupt and stop this conversation

Gm                               Eb 

Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation

Gm                          Eb 

I'd like to talk when I can show you my affection

               Cm            Gm      

Oh, I can't control myself

               Cm            Gm      

Oh, I can't control myself

               Cm               

Oh, I can't control myself

               Cm             Bb   Gm 

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

     Eb 

Hang up and run to me

Gm         Eb 

Woah, hang up and run to me

Gm         Eb 

Woah, hang up and run to me

Gm         Eb 

Woah, hang up and run to me

Gm            Eb 

Woah oh oh oh oh run to me

Then the last part of the solo repeats once more -

e]-------------|

B]-------------|

G]-8-7-3-------|

D]---------3-5-|

A]-6-5-1-------|

E]---------1-3-|

...and thats it.
