Jimmy Buffett
[Intro]
E     D B A  D B A B   E
 
[Verse 1]
E
As large as life she stood there
                                      D   B A B A D B A B A
Kissed my cheek and called my old nickname
B
And though several years had passed
                                  E
Both of us still looked quite the same
E
I said hi relaxed a bit
                                        D    B A B A D B A B A
Then asked her how she'd been all these years
    B
She told me she was feeling fine
                                  E
Came to see a friend who lived up here
 
[Verse 2]
E
Told me she had finished school
                                  D   B A B A D B A B A
And then went on to college for a year
  B
I asked if she had married
                                   E
Slowly down her cheek there came a tear
E
She said just an itchy eye
                              D   B A B A D B A B A
It must be the weather way up here
B
Told her I can't stand the cold
                                  E
It freezes me and I can't feel my ears
 
[Verse 3]
E
We talked a bit about Mobile
                                       D   B A B A D B A B A
And thought about how it has never changed
  B
I told her I was a comin' home
                                         E
To spend some time and hoped it wouldn't rain
E
She asked if she could see me then
                                     D   B A B A D B A B A
And we could spend some time now and then
  B
Because I lived so far away
                                        E
Was still no chance why we could not be friends
E
I drove her to the waiting plane
                                           D  B A B A  D B A B A
Watched that big jet streaking through the sky
B
Thought about the sad young girl
                                 E
And the time that I just saw her cry
E
That flame must still be burning bright
                                    D   B A B A D B A B A
I think I'll catch a later flight today
     B
It's time for me to go on home
                                   E
And spend a day or two down by the bay
