Are green grape vines of betrayal, or jealousy?

Wild grape vines

This guy hears he’s being cheated on, and his girlfriend’s going back to her old boyfriend, and he’s very upset and shocked by the news. But is she really cheating on him? He hasn’t heard it from her, only some news via the grapevine, just some rumors. So is she deceiving him or not? Is this about her actually two-timing him, or about his worrying about her possible betrayal?

If he wrote a letter, would it sound like this?
I bet you’re wondering about this: how did I know about your plans to make me so sad with some other guy, you know, that guy you knew before? Your old boyfriend? You know, between the two of us, I’m the one who loves you more than he does. So, I gotta say, it really surprised when I heard about this yesterday. And you know how I found out? I heard it by listening to rumors, not even by you directly, but by the grapevine. From somebody else. I heard you’re going to leave me. You said you don’t want to be with me any longer. And I’m a man, and I’m not supposed to be crying if I’m a man, but I’m crying right now because I can’t hold my feelings for you inside of me. I mean, I can’t bear the idea of losing you. It would just kill me. You mean so very much to me, you know that? You could have told me, you could have told me that you’re in love with somebody else, instead of me hearing it the way I did. You know, people have told me I should only believe half of what I see, and I should believe nothing that I hear. But I’m confused. If it’s true, let me know! Tell me! Are you going to leave me for your old boyfriend? I’m going crazy with this! Are you leaving me? I just know you’re leaving me. You’re letting me go. I heard it. Is it true? I heard that it’s true. I heard it.


Ooh, I bet you're wondering how I knew
About your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys you know I love you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don’t you know that I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losing you would end my life you see
'cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you love someone else
Instead I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can't help being confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?
Don’t you know I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby I heard it through the grapevine
Ooh I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Honey, honey, I know
That you're letting me go
Said I heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
