 [D (part 2a)]
  Up on a hill, thatДs where we begin
                                     [G (part 2b)]
  This little story, a long time ago,
                                       etc.

chorus:

[G]             [D/F# *]
   Leavin' just in time
                [Em  **]   
   Stayed here for a while
                [F#m]          
   Rollin' in the ocean
                [A] 
   Trying to catch her eye
                [D/F#] 
   We're caught, and say it's easy 
                [Em] 
   Do it just to please me
                [F#m]  
   Tomorrow it is different 
                [A]
   So I pretend, I pretend
                [D]   
   I'm leavin'
