[Verse 1]
C                           D
Three streets off the grid, we were barely kids
            Dm             G          Cadd9 C
But we were old enough to drink in Louisiana
   C                                  D
We listened to ‘The King Must Die’, ‘On the Willows’ drank the wine
         Dm             G          Cadd9 C
We could afford from the work study manna

           Am                Em
Were were young but not that young 
                  Dm                     C
To be cutting our fingers and mixing our blood
Dm                                  C      G
Climbing the fence of the St. Louis cemetery
    Am                  Em
We caught on my heart’s desire
       F        C
Big as the 1788 fire
Dm                        C
Put on Little Queenie and bring me another whiskey

[Chorus]
C                     Em               Am
Elizabeth, the last I heard, you’re in Savannah
                      F         C      Dm    G
You got married after art school    happily
          C                              Am
I didn’t want to look you up, I’m pretty sure it’s just enough 
            F       G     C/G
That I remember you fondly

[Verse 2]
C                           D
I didn’t have a car, but I did have a guitar 
        Dm             G              Cadd9 C
And I played to my advantage when you let me
   C                                  D
I only stayed 2 years, but it still appears 
         Dm                   G            Cadd9 C
After all of this time the memories still get me

       Am                Em
I was young but not that young
                  Dm                     C
To be tied in a knot that was coming undone
Dm                           C                G
The spooks and haunts that vexed me veiled my eyes
        Am               Em
It was always dark back then
       F        C
It was always 3 am
Dm                                    C
I shake my head to think I made it out alive

[Chorus]
C                     Em               Am
Elizabeth, the last I heard, you’re in Savannah
                      F         C      Dm    G
You got married after art school    happily
          C                              Am
I didn’t want to look you up, I’m pretty sure it’s just enough 
F                          G
Put on Little Queenie and bring me another whiskey

[Bridge]
G
Out at night under the lights 
             F            C
Some band is singing a memory
    Am            Em              F         G
Everybody hits record to play it back over time

G
But when I look back on our dance
             F
I only wanna hear that music once 
      Am           Em           F   G
And remember it forever in my mind

[Chorus]
C                     Em               Am
Elizabeth, the last I heard, you’re in Savannah
                      F         C      Dm    G
You got married after art school    happily
          C                              Am
I didn’t want to look you up, I’m pretty sure it’s just enough 
F                          G
Put on Little Queenie and bring me another whiskey
            F        G    F  C/G
That I remember you fondly
