1. She is fixed in his mind like the picture,

             D             Em             A

    he's kept in his wallet for years.

                  D

    And the image has never been tarnished,

                   D         A    G     A                 A7

    by the blood, sweat and tears, and to him it appears ...

 

                  G              A               D

That the moon is still over her shoulder,

              G            A               D     - D7

and the ribbon is still in her hair.

        G          A                Bm A

And he can still see her dancing,

                G          A            D    - G - A - A7

and the music is still in the air.

2. Sometimes he finds it's amazing,

            D            Em               A

    that all of his children are wed.

                         D

    When their mother, she is still turning eighteen,

            D  A     G     A            A7

    and turning his head, she still turns his head.

 

                 G               A               D

And the moon is still over her shoulder,

                G                A           D     - D7

and the stars are still falling above.

                G              A              Bm A

And she never gets one minute older,

            G        A            D

and he is still falling in love.           +  D - G - A - A7 (2x)
