  If you see her, say hello,    she might be in Tangier

C                            F (½)    C (½)        C                   Bb   G

   She left here last early spring,    is livin' there, I hear

Am                     F (½)    C (½)             C                              F

  Say for me that I'm all right though things get kind of slow

Am                                   Cmaj7/G                F                    C (2)

  She might think that I've forgotten her, don't tell her it isn't so.

 

C                F (½)  C (½)       G                 C (Bass run: g-a-c)

  We had a falling-out, like lovers often will

             C                      F (½)      C (½)     C                        Bb   G

And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill

           Am                F (½)    C (½)     C                           F

And though our separation,          it pierced me to the heart

Am                           Cmaj7/G         F                     C (2)

    She still lives inside of me, we've never been apart.

 

C                       F (½)  C (½)   G                             C (Bass run: g-a-c)

   If you get close to   her,        kiss her once for me

C                             F (½)      C (½)        C                                          Bb   G

   I always have respected her for       doin' what she did and gettin' free

Am                                  F (½)    C (½)     C                         F

Oh, whatever makes her happy,          I won't stand in the way.

            Am                   Cmaj7/G                 F                                    C (2)

Oh, the bitter taste still lingers on, from that night I tried to make her stay.

 

C                        F (½)  C (½)    G                        C (Bass run: g-a-c)

   I see a lot of people               as I make the rounds

           C                     F (½)       C (½)        C                     Bb   G

And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town

                   Am            F (½)    C (½)            C                            F

And I've never gotten used to it,    I've just learned to turn it off

Am                 Cmaj7/G    F                       C (2)

Either I'm too sensitive or   else I'm gettin' soft.

 

C                  F (½)          C (½)        G                   C (Bass run: g-a-c)

   Sundown, yellow moon,              I replay the past

C                           F (½)    C (½)     C                   Bb   G

I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast

Am                   F (½)       C (½)       C                      F

If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find

Am                      Cmaj7/G       F                      C (2)

Tell her she can look me up        if she's got the time.
