About this tab version
Its a combination of the favorite version 2 with the voicing of version 3 by (randykirsh). Unfortnately, to my ear, there is a key change in the middle of version 3 that I don't like. (or is an error). Was this info helpful? Yes No

Capo 3 (Chords at bottom)

A - Em/A - A - Em/A - A - Em/A - A - Em/A

       A           Em/A   A  Em/A
It was raining hard in Frisco 

         A          Em/A   A        Em/A
I needed one more fare to make my night

  A        Em/A     A            Em/A
A lady up ahead waved to flag me down 

G        F             A       A  Em/A  A Em/A
She got in at the light

A               Em/A   A   Em/A
Where you going to my Lady Blue

         A     Em/A        A     Em/A     A    Em/A
It’s a shame you ruined your gown in the rain

A           Em/A        A       Em/A
She just looked out the window

           G         F
She said, "16 Parkside Lane."

A - Em/A - A - Em/A - G - F - A - G - F - A - Em/A

  A          Em/A         A       Em/A
Something about her was familiar

       A                 Em/A        A    Em/A
I could swear I seen her face before

        A          Em/A            A       Em/A
But she said, "I’m sure you’re mistaken."

        G          F             A - Em/A - A - Em/A
And she didn’t say anything more. 

               A          Em/A         A       Em/A
It, took a while but she looked in the mirror 

          A             Em/A        A        Em/A
Then she glanced at the license for my name

   A              Em/A        A        Em/A
A smile seemed to come to her slowly. 

        G       F          A     Em/A - A - Em/A
It was a sad smile just the same

        D                   A
And she said, "How are you, Harry?" 

  G          D               A
I said, "How are you, Sue?

            D                      A         F#m
Through the too many miles and the too little smiles 

  Bm7 Bm/E       A      Em/A
I still remember you."

A - Em/A - A - Em/A - A - Em/A - A - Em/A
A - Em/A - G - F - A - Em/A - A

Em/A   A     Em/A     A     Em/A
It was somewhere in a fairy tale 

  A                Em/A       A     Em/A
I used to take her home in my car

    A            Em/A        A               Em/A
We learned about love in the back of a Dodge, 

    G              F           A - Em/A - A - Em/A
The lesson hadn’t gone too far

         D                   Bm
You see, she was gonna be an actress 

    A                        F#m
And I was gonna learn to fly

 D                       A
She took off to find the footlights, 

G        F            A   Em/A
I took off to find the sky. 

A - G - G - G

    G
Oh, I've got something inside me 

F#m                    B7
To drive the princess blind

         Em  Em/D  Em/C#  Em/D  Em      Em/C# Em/B
There’s a wild man wizard he’s hiding in me 

A               Bm
Illuminating my mind

G
I got something inside me 

F#m                        B7
Not what my life’s about

Em       Em/D  Dm/C#  Em/D Em    Em/D Em/C#
’Cause I been letting my outside tide me 

Fmaj7                 A#maj7
Over ’til my time runs out. 

A#maj7 - A#maj7 - A#maj7 - Fmaj7 - C

C                         Gmaj7
Baby’s so high that she’s skying 

           Dm7                   G7
Yeah she’s flying, but afraid to fall 

C                 Cmaj7        Bm
And I’ll tell you why Baby’s crying 

             Em9              Dm9    A  Em/A
’Cause she’s dying, aren’t we all? 


          A        Em/A           A           Em/A
There was not much more for us to talk about 

    A       Em/A         A      Em/A
Whatever we had once was gone. 

      A           Em/A        A        Em/A
So I turned the cab into the driveway

         G            F                    A - Em/A
Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns

        A         Em/A
And she said, "We must get together." 

       A             Em/A          A - Em/A
But I knew it’d never be arranged. 

          A              Em/A          A         Em/A
And she handed me twenty dollars for a two-fifty fare 

           G        F
She said, "Harry, keep the change."

A - Em/A - A - Em/A

      Aadd2
Well another man might have been angry 

And another man might have been hurt 

But another man never would have let her go 

G             F                A - Em/A - A - Em/A
I stashed the bill in my shirt. 

        D                A
And she walked away in silence 

      G              D           A
It’s strange how you never know 

    D                          A     F#m
But we’d both gotten what we’d asked for 

       Bm7   Bm/E        A   Em/A - A - Em/A
Such a long, long time ago

    A    Em/A              A      Em/A
You see, she was gonna be an actress 

    A           Em/A         A   Em/A
And I was gonna learn to fly

A         Em/A           A         Em/A
She took off to find the footlights

G        F                 A - Em/A - A - Em/A
I took off to find the sky

    D                   Bm
And here she’s acting happy, 

A                         F#m
Inside her handsome home 

    D                   A
And me I’m flying in my taxi

       G  F            A
Taking tips and getting stoned

      Bm         E             A   Em/A  A - Em/A
I go flying so high when I’m stoned
