Intro- G  Em  F  C  G  C  G

G                  C      G              C
Coming through the filter, sweet upon my lips
Am            Em            Am            Em
the smoke mollifies the lung into which it rips
G          C       G           C
In a sunlit tavern, in a corner booth
Am           Em       Am               Em
sucking stale popcorn, there I met dear Ruth
C                       G     C                  Em
She'd only just lost the baby, seven months and a week
Am               Em       Am               Em
Drank a month of Seagrams, kissed me on the cheek

F                     D7
Never would've been my style
F                         D7
But I could spot it from a mile
F                             D7
That it would mean a world of good
F                       D7
If we got friendly for a while

Am        G            C              G
Oh what a dear my dear girl might have been

G  Em  F  C  G  C  G

G                C     G                    C
In my nine dollar room, there was nothing on TV
Am                           Em          Am               Em
She asked if she could use my toothbrush, "It don't bother me.”
C                   G        C                 Em
"I thank you for the company" she most solemnly said
Am                  Em       Am                      Em
When I woke the next morning, she had fallen from the bed

F                      D7
Quite a sight I have to say
F                         D7
Where once had blossomed a bouquet
F                         D7
Now all but wilting like a leaf
F                       D7
In the ruthless light of day

Am      G            C               G
O what a dear my dear girl might have been

G          Em            F            C          
Ruth, sweet girl, there's no place for you
       G         C           G 
here in my little nine dollar room
