    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

     

     

    CHORUS:

    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)
