UP UNTIL THEN
by John Gorka
>From the album "Out of the Valley" High Street Records, 1994


Intro: F/G/F/G (x4)

               F           G           F          G
They dropped a dime on the girl in the parking lot
        F             G      F      G
Who was looking for a man of steel
          F           G           F         G
Who would fill up her nights with forget-me-nots
      F            G          F       G
And a dream no one else could reveal

    F       G            F      G
Her new man said to meet him at eight
    F       G              F       G
She came in dressed to the nines
       F          G            F         G
But by ten it was clear he was more than late
        F             G            F       G
And she just wouldn't take it this time

    Am                     G
The bartender said she had had enough
          F                          F
That he'd call a cab to take her somewhere
        Am                   G
But she wasn't a stranger to loneliness
        F                           F
She had grown up and spent her life there

CHORUS
     F              G
Up until then, up until then
            F              Am
It happened over and over again
     F              G              F         G
Up until then, up until then, up until then

     F            G             F        G
Well practice had increased her tolerance
            F      G         F       G
And she had hardly eaten all day
        F         G         F       G
She was all hyped up on her new romance
        F            G     F       G
But she drank in the usual way

    F              G              F       G
She stepped out to breathe and to dry her eyes
   F         G               F        G
To check her machine just in case
       F           G       F     G
He had called to excuse or apologize
         F         G        F        G
When she saw his unpenitent face

   Am                             G
He approached with a girl she had seen before
  F                       F
A bimbo up from Raspberry Street
        Am                     G
When he saw her he laughed and so did the whore
               F                        F
They dropped a ten dollar bill at their feet

[CHORUS]

[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK: F/G/F/G (x2)]

        F            G            F           G
She was small he was tall but she blocked his path
      F            G         F        G
She explained in unprintable words
    F          G             F       G
The reason she seized him so full of wrath
               F           G            F        G
That more than half of the neighborhood heard

    F                G             F        G
She sprayed him with mace from her pocketbook
         F             G        F        G
And then kicked in his personal zones
    F                G        F       G
Her high heels would ruin his perfect looks
           F         G        F        G
She left a couple of unbroken bones

         Am                  G
Well the bimbo she ran in to get the cops
        F                         F
But the owner had called from the bar
        Am                         G
It took two cars with dogs just to make her stop
    F                          F
I'm told that's how some women are

[CHORUS]

               F           G           F          G
They dropped a dime on the girl in the parking lot
              F            G         F        G
But she would suffer in no permanent way
    F            G           F         G
She spent thirty nights on a county cot
            F           G              F        G
And she's regarded with fear till this day

     F                    G
Up until then, but never again
            F              Am
It happened over and over again
     F              G              F        G
Up until then, up until then, up until then

Am                              G
Now she's tending bar where the Pagans
    used to meet
         F
And he's living with that bimbo up on
    G                F
    Raspberry Street

Outro: F/G/F/G [repeat to fade]
