  Well the first time that I saw her,

e|--------------------------------------------------|

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|-3-----------3-----------3-----------3------------|

  standing in the middle of the road

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---1-----1-----1-----1-----0-----0-----0-----0----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|
A|-3-----------3------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------3-----------3------------|

  eyes as bright as Christmas lights,

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---1-----1-----1-----1-----0-----0-----0-----0----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|
A|-3-----------3------------------------------------|

  wearing someone else's clothes.

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-----0-----0-----0-----3-----3-----3-----3----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----2--|
D|-------0-----------0-----0-----0-----0-----0------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|-3-----------3------------------------------------|

  I did my best to ignore her,

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|-3-----------3-----------3-----------3------------|

  but ignoring my best pretty soon,

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|

  in an armchair in my friend's front room...                        I said:

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0------|
A|-------------2-----------------------2------------|
E|-3-----------------------3------------------------|

   given my heart and my word to a girl far away..

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0------|

E|-3-----------------------3-----------2------------|

  I felt weak as she kissed my cheek, 

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-----0-----0-----0-----3-----3-----3-----3----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----------0-----------4-----------4------|
A|-------------2-----------2-----------2------------|
E|-3------------------------------------------------|

  and inside when I heard her say:

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---5-----5-----5-----5-----4-----4-----4-----4----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|-3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3------|

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|

D|-------0-----------0-----0-----0-----0-----0------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|-3-----------3------------------------------------|

  I did my best to assure her,

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0----|
G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|-3-----------3-----------3-----------3------------|

  but assurance isn't easy to give -

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|

E|-------------------------3-----------3------------|

  if you've never been sure of anything much,

G|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D|-------2-----------2-----------0-----------0------|

E|-------------------------3-----------3------------|

  you get less so, the longer you live...                           She said:
