INTRO   C  C9  F  C  

 	          C                    C9 	 
I thought I knew, the girl so well
F 	  	   C
if she was sad, I couldn't tell
I missed the point, I missed the sings
F 	      	  	     C  	  
  so if she's gone, the fault is mine
   Dm 	  	  	  	           C
I know, I know, a whole lot of little things
       Dm  	  	  	             C 	 
and even though, I could face them one by one
she would still be gone

G7 	  	    C
   Her eyes are blue
her hair is long
sixty four
she was born
      G               C
in Batton rouge
the very song
is in my life
              C/G       G          Am
I meorized her ev'ry move
 	        C/G 	  	         Fmaj7
I knew her books, her car, her clothes
           C      C/E          F                 C/G    G 
but I paid,    no  attention   to what mattered most

Verse 2
I never asked, she never said
And when she cried I turned my head
She dreamed her dreams behind closed doors
That made them easy to ignore
And I know, I know, I missed the forest for the trees
Now all I have to show
Or would she walk out the door?
The cold facts and nothin' more


Chorus 2
Her eyes are blue, her hair is long,   sixy four
she was born, in Batton Rouge, 
Her father's tall, her mother's gone,
She moved out when she was two,
The way she laughed, the way she loved,
Oh my God what did I do?
