Paroles et musique : Joan Baez
Well, I Em 'll be damned
Here comes your gh C ost again
But that's not un G usual
It's just that the m D oon is full
And you happened to c Em all.
Here I sit
Hand on the te C lephone
Hearing a voice G I'd known
A couple of light y D ears ago
Heading straight for a f Em all.
As Em I remember your eyes
Were bluer than C robin's eggs.
My poetry was l G ousy, you said.
Where are you D calling from ?
A booth in the Midw Em est.
Ten years ago
I bought you some c C uff links.
You brought me s G omething.
We both know what memor D ies can bring
They bring diamonds and r Em ust.
Well, Em you burst on the scene
Already a legend.
The unwashed phe G nomenon
The original D vagabond
You strayed into my a Em rms.
And there you stayed
Temporarily l C ost at sea.
The Madonna was yours f G or free.
Yes, the girl on the half-sh D ell
Would keep you unh Em armed.
Now I Bm7 see you standing
With brown leaves falling
And snow in your h Am air.
Now you're Bm7 smiling
Out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington S Am quare.
Our br C eath comes out
Mingles, and hangs in the a G ir.
Speaking s Fmaj7 trictly for me
We both could have died then and th G ere.
Now you're Em telling me you're not nostalgic
Then give me another w G ord for it
You who are so g D ood with words
And at keeping things v Em ague.
Because I need some of that vagueness now
It's all come back too c C learly.
Yes, I loves you dear G ly
And if you're offering me
