The Marys - The Day Roy Orbison Died




[Verse 1]
G
I came home early one fine Wednesday morning
Em
Something was waiting for me
                       C
There without warning, something had happened
                      G     D
I couldn't believe my eyes 


[Verse 2]
G
I turned the knob and the front door swung open
    Em
The closets were empty, our picture was broken
C
Either you'd packed up and left
                    G
Or we'd been burglarized


[Chorus]
   D                 Am        C   D
Oo-ooh, that doesn't matter to me 
              Am      C        D
That's just a bad memory, woah-oh
             Am            C 
The day that you picked to leave 
        D               G
Was the day Roy Orbison died


[Verse 3]
G
I don't think some things you ever get used to
Em
I don't think some things you're really supposed to
C
I see your face every time
                    G      D
That I turn out the light


[Verse 4]
        G
But the song that was playing the first time I kissed you
       Em
Is the song that is playing tonight when I miss you
C
I don't think some things
                          G   
Are ever supposed to seem right


[Chorus]
   D                 Am        C   D
Oo-ooh, that doesn't matter to me 
              Am      C        D
That's just a bad memory, woah-oh
             Am            C 
The day that you picked to leave 
        D               G
Was the day Roy Orbison died


[Verse 5]
G
My sister only had three 45 records 
    Em
And she used to play them over and over
  C
Until she had every note
                G     D
Every word memorized


[Verse 6]
G
And every time I hear "Only the Lonely"
Em
And every time I hear "Oh Pretty Woman"
    C
Or "Crying"
                        G 
I feel like he's still alive



[Chorus]
   D                 Am        C   D
Oo-ooh, that doesn't matter to me 
              Am      C        D
That's just a bad memory, woah-oh
             Am            C 
The day that you picked to leave 
        D               G     Em  C  G
Was the day Roy Orbison died
