I said [G]howdy there lady
This [C]sure is some [G]party
I've [C]never seen [G]anything
Like [D]this before
She said [G]howdy there honey
It's [C]just barely [G]started
But if [C]you think this is [G]something
Just [D]stand here some more

Then she [G]looked at me
Then she [C]laughed at me[G]
Then she lifted her [D]glass to me
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]   [G][D][G]

I said that [G]girl in the corner
[C]She looks so [G]pretty
Oh the [C]girls all [G]around her
She [D]makes 'em look plain
[G]Lady I need a drink
Can I [C]bring you [G]another
I'm [C]hoping these [G]bubbles
They [D]might know her [G]name

Well she [G]looked at me
Then she [C]laughed at [G]me
Then she lifted her [D]glass to me
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]  [G][D][G]
But [G]when I returned
Cham[C]pagne in my [G]hands
[C]There stood two [G]strangers
Where [D]we both did stand
And the [G]lady was gone
And the [C]evening wore [G]on
And the [C]girl in the [G]corner
Was [D]never al[G]one

But she [G]looked at me
And she [C]smiled at [G]me
But she turned her eyes [D]away from me
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]  [G][D][G]

[G]Tim he was tall
And [C]Susan was [G]smart
And [C]Francis she [G]looked
Like a [D]fine work of art
[G]Melissa was sad
But [C]that made her [G]sweet
And [C]Dan and [G]Elaine
Had the [D]world at their feet
[G]Debra had Pliny
[C]Lisa had [G]Tony
And the [C]girl in the [G]corner
She could've [D]had anybody
[G]Richard was cool
And [C]Tubb he was [G]funny
And [C]the tarot card [G]lady
She had [D]everyone's [G]money
So I [G]said my goodbyes
When it [C]came time to [G]leave
And [C]as I walked [G]out
Someone [D]pulled at my sleeve
She said [G]honey we never did of[C]ficially meet
[C]But I sure am [G]happy you [D]came

She said that [G]girl in the corner
She's [C]more than [G]pretty
And [C]man you're not the [G]first
To look [D]over her way
But [G]if you still wanted
I [C]could introd[G]uce you
But [C]you never will be the [G]same

Then she [G]looked at me
Then she [C]laughed at [G]me
Then she extended her [D]hand to me
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]  [G][D][G]

very easy sort of blues progression, but he plays it in A, not G = G as A, C as D, and D as E. voilĂ !
