Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town

Pearl Jam


D  Cadd9 G                    Cadd9   G/B

I seem to recognize your face

D     Cadd9  G                            Cadd9  G/B
Haunting, familiar yet, I can't seem to place it

D          Cadd9    G                          Cadd9     G/B
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name

D     Cadd9    G                        Cadd9   G/B
Lifetimes are catching up with me



Cadd9     Asus2                          
All these changes taking

Cadd9  Asus2

place, I wish I'd seen the

Cadd9       Asus2           Em

Place,  But no one's ever taken me




D                 Cadd9         G       Cadd9   G/B
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

D                 Cadd9         G       Cadd9   G/B

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away


D  Cadd9  G                      Cadd9   G/B

I swear I recognize your breath

D       Cadd9    G                    Cadd9   G/B
Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising

D            Cadd9     G                 Cadd9  G/B
Me, you wouldn't recall, for I'm not my former

D                 Cadd9     G                    Cadd9   G/B
It's hard when, you’re stuck upon the shelf


Cadd9          Asus2                          

I changed by not changing at

Cadd9       Asus2                          

all, small town predicts my

Cadd9    Asus2                           Em

fate, Perhaps that's what no one wants to see



D        Cadd9   G            Cadd9    G/B
I just want to scream...hello...

D    Cadd9  G                             Cadd9        G/B
My god its been so long, never dreamed you'd return

D    Cadd9           G            Cadd9    G/B
But now here you are, and here I am

D                 Cadd9           G        Cadd9   G/B
Hearts and thoughts they fade...away...



Chorus  (repeat and fade)
