UP UNTIL THEN
by John Gorka
>From the album "Out of the Valley" High Street Records, 1994


Intro: G/D/C/D (x4)

               G           D           C          D
They dropped a dime on the girl in the parking lot
        G             D      C      D
Who was looking for a man of steel
          G           D           C         D
Who would fill up her nights with forget-me-nots
      G            D          C       D
And a dream no one else could reveal

    G       D            C      D
Her new man said to meet him at eight
    G       D              C       D
She came in dressed to the nines
       G          D            C         D
But by ten it was clear he was more than late
        G             D            C       D
And she just wouldn't take it this time

    Em                     D
The bartender said she had had enough
          G                          C
That he'd call a cab to take her somewhere
        Em                   D
But she wasn't a stranger to loneliness
        G                           C
She had grown up and spent her life there

CHORUS
     G              D
Up until then, up until then
            C              Em
It happened over and over again
     G              D              C         D
Up until then, up until then, up until then

     G            D             C        D
Well practice had increased her tolerance
            G      D         C       D
And she had hardly eaten all day
        G         D         C       D
She was all hyped up on her new romance
        G            D     C       D
But she drank in the usual way

    G              D              C       D
She stepped out to breathe and to dry her eyes
   G         D               C        D
To check her machine just in case
       G           D       C     D
He had called to excuse or apologize
         G         D        C        D
When she saw his unpenitent face

   Em                             D
He approached with a girl she had seen before
  G                       C
A bimbo up from Raspberry Street
        Em                     D
When he saw her he laughed and so did the whore
               G                        C
They dropped a ten dollar bill at their feet

[CHORUS]

[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK: G/D/C/D (x2)]

        G            D            C           D
She was small he was tall but she blocked his path
      G            D         C        D
She explained in unprintable words
    G          D             C       D
The reason she seized him so full of wrath
               G           D            C        D
That more than half of the neighborhood heard

    G                D             C        D
She sprayed him with mace from her pocketbook
         G             D        C        D
And then kicked in his personal zones
    G                D        C       D
Her high heels would ruin his perfect looks
           G         D        C        D
She left a couple of unbroken bones

         Em                  D
Well the bimbo she ran in to get the cops
        G                         C
But the owner had called from the bar
        Em                         D
It took two cars with dogs just to make her stop
    G                          C
I'm told that's how some women are

[CHORUS]

               G           D           C          D
They dropped a dime on the girl in the parking lot
              G            D         C        D
But she would suffer in no permanent way
    G            D           C         D
She spent thirty nights on a county cot
            G           D              C        D
And she's regarded with fear till this day

     G                    D
Up until then, but never again
            C              Em
It happened over and over again
     G              D              C        D
Up until then, up until then, up until then

Em                              D
Now she's tending bar where the Pagans
    used to meet
         C
And he's living with that bimbo up on
    D                G
    Raspberry Street

Outro: G/D/C/D [repeat to fade]
