C F A7 D7

The last time that I saw her, she was standing in the rain

 

G C
With her overcoat under her arm, leanin on a horse head cane

 

C F A7 D7
She said "Carl, take all the money." She called everybody Carl

 

G C
"My spirit's broke, my mind's a joke, and getting up's real hard"


Chorus

F C F
Don't you know her when you see her? She grew up in your back yard

 

C G C
Come back to us Barbara Lewis, Hare Krishna Beauregard



C F A7 D7

Selling bibles at the airports, buying Quaaludes on the phone

G C
Hey, you talk about a paper route, she's a shut in without a home

C F A7 D7

God save her, please, she's nailed her knees to some drugstore parking lot

G C
Hey, Mr. Brown turn the volume down I believe this evening's shot

Repeat Chorus

C F A7 D7

Can you picture her next Thursday? Can you picture her at all?
G C

In the Hotel Boulderado at the dark end of the hall.
C F A7 D7

I gotta shake myself and wonder why she even bothers me
G C
For if heartaches were commercials, we'd all be on T.V.

Repeat Chorus Twice

Repeat Last Line of Chorus
