"Distantly in Love."

Csus4: 000233
F:        002220
Gsus2: 002200

Payphones all were ringing as the crowd went roaring by,

C                     F                 F          C
Lovely dancers swayin' to an island lullaby

C                            F                  F                          C
Beside the southern ocean, taking thought of what's to be

C                      F                     F                C
Writing you this letter that you'll prob'ly never see

     F  C    F               F     C       F                  F           C
          F               C
But I can't help but be ruled by inconsistancies, now you need this distantly
in love.

C                           F                   F                     C
Tried to phone from Paris, thinking things could be arranged

C                          F                       F
                          C
Me and you would roundez-vous, but I found your number changed

C                        F                        F                  C
So I drove to San Ramos where the crazy painter dwells

C                      F                     F                      C
Toasted our old photographs still up there on the shelves

      F C     F               F         C     F           F           C
            F              C
But I can't help but be ruled by my intiguities, now you need this distantly
in love

I can't be the one to fill your times and all your places

F                  F                    D                       F

C                     F                   F                   C
I heard it from a friend of ours I saw in Timber Bay

C                    F                   F              C
You had a new lover who had stolen you away

C                        F                 F              C
That could be the reason that I never got in touch

C                       F                 F                        C
He presents like problems if he loves you half as much

F           C            F               F         C      F           F
         C            F              C

distantly in love

           C            F
You know I can't help but be part of my own philosophies, now you need this
distantly in

C
love

I've been playing this song for years, but I never actually wrote it down to
send it in until now.  The best memory I have of this song is when Jimmy did
it acoustic both nights at Irvine Meadows in Irvine, CA on the '94 Fruitcakes
tour.  Anyhoo, Enjoy!
