Living Next Door To Alice:Smokie.
#5 in UK and #2 in USA in 1976.

#1. (Capo 7th fret for original.)
D           
Sally called when she got the word,
G                               A    A7       D     A
And she said: "I suppose you've heard - About Alice".
A       D
Well, I rushed to the window, and I looked outside,
G                                         A
and I could hardly believe my eyes - as a big limousine 
                       D    A
rolled up into Alice's drive.

CHORUS:
      D
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's

gonna go.
  G
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't want 

to know.
          A 
Cause for twenty-four years I've been living next door 
   D    A7
to Alice.
D
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
   G
to tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
         A                      G                   D    A7
now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

#2.
   D
We grew up together, two kids in the park.
   G      
We carved our initials, deep in the bark.
A        D    A7
Me...and Alice.
        D
Now she walks through the door, with her head held high,
G                                           A
just for a moment, I caught her eye, as the big limousine 
                             D    A7
pulled slowly out of Alice's drive.

CHORUS:
    D
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's

gonna go.
  G
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't want 

to know.
          A 
Cause for twenty-four years I've been living next door 
   D    A7
to Alice.
D
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
   G
to tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
         A                      G                   D    A7
now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

#3.
     D
Then Sally called back and asked how I felt,
G                                  A  A7         D   A7
And she said: "I know how to help..you..get over Alice".
               D
She said: "Now Alice is gone, but I'm still here,
    G
you know I've been waiting for twenty-four years..."
        A7            D
And the big limousine dissapeared...

CHORUS:
    D
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's

gonna go.
  G
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't want 

to know.
          A 
Cause for twenty-four years I've been living next door 
   D    A7
to Alice.
D
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
   G
to tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
         A                     G           A       D
But I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...

OUTRO:
         A                     G           A       D
No, I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...
