Chords with Lyrics:
E                               B        (Fill)
As I was walkin round grosvenor square
E                                          B      (Fill)
Not a chill to the winter but a nip to the air,
A              E    B     A                      E
From the other direction, she was calling my eye,
A              E   B     A                   E
It could be an illusion, but I might as well try, might as well try.

Intro Riff

E                                             B        (Fill)
She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes.
E                                         B         (Fill)
And I knew without askin she was into the blues.
A                E    B   A                      E
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls,
A            E  B          A               E
I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls.

Intro Riff

E                                                B      (Fill)
In the thick of the evening when the dealing got rough,
E                                        B             (Fill)
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff.
A                 E   B    A                       E
As I picked up my matches and was closing the door,
A                  E  B     A             E
I had one of those flashes Id been there before, been there before.

Well, I aint always right but Ive never been wrong.
B                                     A
Seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
Once in a while you get shown the light
B                                 A           E
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.


E                                              B         (Fill)
Well there aint nothing wrong with the way she moves,
E                                  B           (Fill)
Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues.
A                  E      B       A                      E
And theres nothing wrong with the look thats in her eyes,
A                   E    B     A             E
I had to learn the hard way to let her pass by, I let her pass by

Intro Riff

E                                    B    (Fill)
Wind in the willows playin tea for two;
E                                    B     (Fill)
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue,
A                  E    B    A                       E
Strangers stoppin strangers just to shake their hand,
A           E    B   A                  E                    B
Everybodys playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band.
