More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

C   Am   C    Am            F        G
So,           she says it's time she goes
                 F      G
But wanted to be sure I know
                   C        Am   C    Am
She hopes we can be friends

C   Am   C      Am               F       G
I        think, yeah, I guess we can say I
                    F       Em
But didn't think to ask her why
                         F        E/G#
She blocked her eyes and drew the curtains
     Am         Am/G       D9/F#
With knots I've got yet to untie

               F        Am          C
What if I were Romeo in black jeans
              F                   G
What if I was Heathcliff, it's no myth
D/F#             F
Maybe she's just looking for
Dm         Bb
Someone to dance with

See, it was just too soon to tell
And looking for some parallel
Can be an endless game

We, we said goodbye before hello
My secrets she will never know
And if I dig a hole to China
I'll catch the first junk to Soho

    Bb                    Dm
Sometime from now you'll bow to pressure
G                                      C           Am
Some things in life you cannot measure by degrees
      Bb                     Dm
I'm between the poles and the equator
G                                     C              G/B
Don't send no private investigator to find me please
                E        E7
'Less he speaks Chinese
        Am            Am/G         D9/F#
And can dance like Astaire overseas, okay
