      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.
