Operator, number please, it's been so many years
     C     G7     C      G7    Am      G         F     F
Will she remember my old voice while I fight the tears
   C      A7        Dm      G7      C       A7      Dm    G7
Hello, hello there, is this Martha? This is ol' Tom Frost
    C    A7      Dm   G7              Am     G        F    F
And I am calling long distance, don't worry about the cost
       C         A7     Dm       G7        C       A7       Dm   G7
'cause it's been fourty years or more now, Martha, please recall
    C       A7      Dm     G           Am    G       F   F
And meet me out for coffee where we'll talk about it all


    C          C       F      F    C  C       F
And those were days of roses,   of poetry and prose
    F       Am    Am      F       F       Dm  G   C  F
And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me
C         C    F        F    C       C       F
There was no tomorrows,   we packed away our sorrows
F      Am         Am    F  G  C   F C
And we saved them for a rainy day


C  G7  C  G7  Am  G  F  F


    C      G7      C     G7   Am          G     F   F
And I feel so much older now, you're much older too
C          G7           C          G7                  Am    G        F   F
How's your husband, and how's your kids? You know that I got married, too
C        A7       Dm        G7     C        A7     Dm   G7
   Lucky that you found someone to make you feel secure
       C       A7     Dm        G7       Am     G     F    F
'cause we were all so young and foolish, now we are mature


    C          C       F      F    C  C       F
And those were days of roses,   of poetry and prose
    F       Am    Am      F       F       Dm  G   C  F
And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me
C         C    F        F    C       C       F
There was no tomorrows,   we packed away our sorrows
F      Am         Am    F  G  C   F
And we saved them for a rainy day

C  G7  C  G7  Am  G  F  F


    C     G7     C    G7         Am         G       F  F
And I was always so impulsive, I guess that I still am
C               G7     C        G7       Am    G        F   F
   And all that really mattered then was that I-- was a man
  C          A7    Dm    G7         C     A7       Dm G7
I guess that our bein' together was never meant to be
C       A7 Dm      G7   Am        G         F   F
Martha,    Martha,    I love you, can't you see


    C          C       F      F    C  C       F
And those were days of roses,   of poetry and prose
    F       Am    Am      F       F       Dm  G   C  F
And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me
C         C    F        F    C       C       F
There was no tomorrows,   we packed away our sorrows
F      Am         Am    F  G  C   F
And we saved them for a rainy day


C  G7  C  G7  Am  G  F  F


    C   G7     C     G7        Am        G        F
And I remember quiet evenings, trembling close to you
