Affair on Eighth Avenue
By: Gordon Lightfoot


Em                   D             Am          Bm           C            D
The perfume that she wore was from some little store on the down side of town.
Em               D      Am           Bm       C          D
But it lingered on long after she?d gone,  I remember it well.
        G        D             C          D
And our fingers entwined like ribbons of light,
G                     Em          Am     F      D
And we came through a doorway somewhere in the night.


Em                D        Am     Bm           C            D
Her long flowing hair came softly undone in a pile all around.
Em               D            Am           Bm             C          D
And she brushed it down as I stood by her side in the warmth of her love.
        G             D             C          D
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin,
G               Em       Am          F    D
And we played a game only she could win.
        G        D             C          D
And she told me a riddle I?ll never forget
G                     Em      Am     F      D
And left with the answer I've never found yet.


Em              D             Am  Bm   C             D
How long,said she, Can a moment like this belong to someone
Em                      D      Am     Bm         D
Whats wrong, what is right?  For to live or to die,
G   D    C       D
We all must be born.
        G        D             C          D
So, if you should ask me what secrets I hide,
G              Em          Am   F      D 
I’m only your lover, don’t make me decide!


Em                   D             Am          Bm           C            D
The perfume that she wore was from some little store on the down side of town.
Em               D      Am           Bm       C          D
But it lingered on long after she?d gone,  I remember it well.
        G              D          C          D
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin,
G               Em       Am          F    D
And we played a game only she could win.
        G        D             C          D
And our fingers entwined like ribbons of light 
G                     Em          Am     F      D
And we came through a doorway somewhere in the night.
