                The Best Thing - from Carly's debut album - 1971

D
I was his foreigner
     G
And he was mine
D
We ate on terraces
      G                      
And drank the cheapest wine
C    
And he believed in me
      G            G7
Down by the serpentine
F    Em  Dm C  G
How was I to know
             C
It was the best thing
         Bb           D    G  
To come along for a long time


D
I turned the page
                 G
And saw three children with smiles
D
I looked to see
               G             
What I could make of the youngest child
C                            G
And as she blew the candles out
           G7
She turned five
F    Em  Dm C  G
How was I to know
            C
It was the best thing
  Bb           D    G  
To come along for a long time

Em
What do the people at the end of the world do
       Bbm    Eb9
About time? What about time?

Abm Ab Abm  Ab 
Oh oh oh oh....

Em
What do the people at the end of the world do
       Bbm    Eb9
About time? What about time?
A                        D
Their secret sleeps with me


F    Em  Dm C  G
How was I to know
            C
It was the best thing
  Bb           D    G  
To come along for a long time
F    Em  Dm C  G
How was I to know
            C
It was the best thing
  Bb           D    G  
To come along for a long time
