†††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (3x)

 

†††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

+Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (4x)

 

††††††† †††††Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

1. I am sitting in the morning at the diner on the corner,

††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† I am waiting at the counter for the man to pour the coffee.

†††††††††††††††† G††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A

††† And he fills it only halfway, and before I even argue,

†††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††B7

††† he is looking out the window at somebody coming in.

 

†††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††A

+Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (2x)

 

†††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

2. It is always nice to see you, says the man behind the counter,

†††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††A

††† to the woman who has come in, she is shaking her umbrella.

†††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† And I look the other way, as they are kissing their hellos,

††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††B7

††† and Iím pretending not to see them, and instead I pour the milk.

 

†††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††A

+Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (2x)

 

††† †††††††Em††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††A

3. As I open up the paper, thereís a story of an actor,

††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† who had died while he was drinking, it was no one I had heard of.

††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A

††† And Iím turning to the horoscope and looking for the funnies,

††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B7

††† when Iím feeling someone watching me, and so I raise my head.††

 

††††††††††† †††Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††A

+Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (4x)†† +Em

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

†††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

4. Thereís a woman on the outside, looking inside, does she see me ?

††† †††††††††††††††Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† No, she does not really see me, Ďcause she sees her own reflection.

†††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† And Iím trying not to notice that sheís hitching up her skirt,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B7

††† and while sheís straightening her stockings, her hair has gotten wet.

 

†††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

+Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (2x)+Em

 

††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

5. Oh, this rain, it will continue, through the morning as I'm listening.

††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - A

††† to the bells of the cathedral.

Em†††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - Em

††† I am thinking of your voice.

 

†††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

+Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da. (6x) ...
