Anthony John Clarke - An Acquaintance Of Mine


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
C  G/B  Am  C/G  F  C  G

[Verse 1]
     C              G/B     Am           C
He's out on the road now, a quarter past nine
Dm7      C              F            G
His destination, it's a way down the line
              C             G/B          Am            C
He's done his fair share of talking, his fare share of time
       Dm7     G
And he know


[Verse 2]
      C                 G/B       Am           C
As he kicks off the dust from the place he has been
  Dm7             C            F          G
A white car pulls over, and as he bundles in
      C              G/B      Am           C
I see lines on his face, grey hairs on his chin
       Dm7     G
And he know


[Chorus]
       C         G/B         Am            C
He's a winner, a loser, an acquaintance of mine
       F           C                G
He's a page from a novel, she's the dust on his wine bottle
C          G/B          Am        C     Dm7   G
He's never early, she's rarely on time


[Instrumental]
C  G/B  Am  C/G  F  C  G


[Verse 3]
   C              G/B        Am       C
He stops from his travels, a lonely hotel
     Dm7            C            F            G
Puts four suitcases down, gently rings on the bell
        C       G/B          Am           C
And the lady is smiling, she knows him so well
    F          C          G
And he follows her in the hall


[Verse 4]
             C           G/B        Am          C
To where the carpets are faded, the windows are stained
    Dm7           C          F      G
The portraits are hung in Victorian frames
       C           G/B         Am           C
And he touches her face as she whispers his name
         Dm7     G
And they know


[Chorus]
       C         G/B         Am            C
He's a winner, a loser, an acquaintance of mine
       F           C                G
He's a page from a novel, she's the dust on his wine bottle
C          G/B          Am        C     Dm7   G
He's never early, she's rarely on time


[Instrumental]
C  G/B  Am  C/G  F  C  G  (2x)


[Verse 5]
   C            G/B         Am           C
He wakes in the morning and she is still there
    Dm7          C             F              G
Her shoes on the floor and her clothes on the chair
         C           G/B            Am          C
He tries hard not to wake her as he touches her hair
        Dm7     G
It's as though


[Verse 6]
    C             G/B           Am            C
The wall clock is broken, so he keeps his own time
   Dm7            C              F        G
He knows that she loves him, one day at a time
        C            G/B             Am       C
And her breathing is sweet love in a Burgundy wine
         Dm7     G
And they know


[Verse 7]
         C          G/B                Am          C
There is no need to speak out, there's no one else there
 Dm7            C          F             G
Alone words are only loose shapes in the air
    C          G/B              Am           C
And she may be sleeping, but at least she is there
        Dm7     G
And she knows


[Chorus]
       C         G/B         Am            C
He's a winner, a loser, an acquaintance of mine
       F           C                G
He's a page from a novel, she's the dust on his wine bottle
C          G/B          Am        C     Dm7   G
He's never early, she's rarely on time


[Chorus]
       C         G/B         Am            C
He's a winner, a loser, an acquaintance of mine
       F           C                G
He's a page from a novel, she's the dust on his wine bottle
C          G/B          Am        C     Dm7   G   F   C
He's never early, she's rarely on time
