Am    D    Am    D  (low E|--0—3—4--| play beginning of each verse)

[Verse 1]
Am                     D                             Esus2    Em
    Thinkin' 'bout the times your drove in my car.
Am                  D                               Esus2    Em
    Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far.
C                             Am                         Bm     Amadd9
    And I'm thinkin' bout the love that you laid on my table.

[Verse 2]
Am                    D                          Esus2    Em
    I told you not to wander 'round in the dark.
Am                       D                                  Esus2       Em
    I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park.
C                             Am                         Bm    Amadd9
    Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mable.

 each line)     G|--------2--------0--------0-----2--|

Yes, I told you that the light goes up and down.
Don't you notice how the wheel goes 'round.
And you better pick yourself up from the ground
before they bring the curtain down.
Yes, before they bring the curtain down.

Am                  D                          Emadd9    Em
    Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you.
Am                      D                          Emadd9   Em
    She didn't have the time to wait in the queue.
C                      Am                             Bm     Amadd9

(Listen to song , there are many hammer on and pull offs played throughout. Examaple 
would be during verses try use hammer on the B string |--0—1--|for the “Am” chord. Just 
play around and give it your own special sound. It is a great song to )

It's "you drove in my car" not "your".

> Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mable

Worst lyric in rock, until Saxon came up with "maybe you could learn to play the bass".
