[Intro]

G C G G C G G C G D C


[Verse 1]
G      C            G
I was 19 when I came to town
G                    C          G
They called it the summer of love
G                     C                  G
They were burning babies, and burning flags
     D                   C
The hawks against the doves


G         C                   G
I took a job at the steaming way
G         C        G
Down on Caltrim St
G                     C         G
Fell in love with a laundry girl
           D              C
That was workin' next to me



[Chorus]
                Em                     G
She was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
    Em                D                    C
So fine, a breath of wind would blow her away
                     Em                        G
And she was a lost child, oh she was runnin' wild
              Em                 D                    C
She said "As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay
           Em             D          C
And you wouldn't have it any other way"

[Verse 2]
G                C                G
Brown hair zig zagged around her face
G             C          G
In a look of half surprise
G           C                    G
Like a fox caught in the headlights
            D               C
There was an-i-mal in her eyes


G               C                G
She said "Young man can't you see"
G                 C          G
That I'm not the factory kind?
G             C              G
If you don't get me out of here
           D           G
I'll surely lose my mind"



[Chorus]
                Em                     G
She was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
    Em                D                    C
So fine, that I might crush her where she lay
                     Em                        G
And she was a lost child, oh she was runnin' wild
              Em                 D                    C
She said "As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay
           Em             D          C
And you wouldn't have it any other way"

[Verse 3]
G                C                   G
We was campin' down the Gower one time
G              C          G
And the work was pretty good
G                C                    G
She said "we shouldn't wait for the frost"
           D               C
But I thought maybe we should


G                    C                G
And we were drinking more in those days
G                   C         G
Our tempers had reached a pitch
G                   C              G
And like a fool I let her run 'round
           D          C
With that ramblin' itch


G                  C               G
And they say her flower has faded now
G              C          G
Hard weather and hard booze
G                         C           G
But maybe that's just the price you pay
            D                C
For the chains that you refuse



[Chorus]
                Em                     G
She was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
    Em                D                    C
So fine, a breath of wind would blow her away
                     Em                        G
And she was a lost child, oh she was runnin' wild
              Em                 D                    C
She said "As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay
           Em             D          C
And you wouldn't have it any other way"

[Chorus]
                Em                     G
She was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
    Em                D                    C
So fine, a breath of wind would blow her away
                     Em                        G
And she was a lost child, oh she was runnin' wild
