Sequel Harry Chapin
I got into town a little early D Am
Had eight hours to kill before the show
First I though about heading up north of the bay
Then I C knew where I Bb had to go D
I thought about taking a limousine D Am
Or at least a fancy car
But I ended up taking a "Taxi'
'Cause C that's how I Bb this D far
You see G ten years ago it was the Em front seat
Drivin' D stoned and feelin' no Bm pain
Now G here I am straight and D sittin' in the back
Hitting C Sixteen Bb Parkside D Lane C Bb D D
[C] [E] The driveway was the same as I remembered E Bm
And a butler came and answered the door
He just shook his head when I asked for her
And said "She D doesn't live C here E anymore D C E
But he offered to give me the address E Bm
That they were forwarding her letters to
I just took it and returned to the cabbie
And said "I got D one more C fare for E you." D C E
E And so we rolled back into the G city
Up to a A five story old brown C stone
I rang the D bell that had her name on the E mailbox
The D buzzer said somebody's E home D C E C D
[E] E And the look on her face as she G opened the door
Was like an A old joke told by a C friend
It'd taken D ten more years but she'd E found her smile
And I D watched the corners start to E bend
And she A said, ?How are you B7 Harry?
Haven't we E played this scene before??
I A said, "It's so good to E see you , Sue.
Had to D play it out C just once E more
She said ?I've heard you flying high on my radio.? E Bm
I answered "It's not all it seem."
That's when she laughed and she said,
"It's better sometimes, when we don't D get to touch our E dreams."
D - E x2
That's when I A asked her where was that F#m actress
She E said "That was somebody C#m else."
And then I A asked her why she looked so E happy now
She said, "I D finally like myself, at last I like E myself."
[E] [Abm] [E7] [E7/Db] [F#m] [D7] [C] [E] E So we talked all through that afternoon
Abm Talking about where we'd been
E7 We talked of the tiny difference
E7/Db Between ending and starting to begin
F#m We talked ?cause talking tells you things
D7 Like what you are really thinking about
C But sometimes you can't find what you're feeling
E ?Til all the words run out
So I asked her to come to the concert E Bm
She said ?No, I work at night."
I said, ?We've gotten to damn good at leaving, Sue."
Don't A ask me if I made F#m love to her
Or which E one of us started to cry.
Don't A ask me why she wouldn't take the E money that I left.
If I D answered at all I'd E lie. D C E C Bb D
So I thought about her as I sang that night Am D
And how the circle keeps rolling around
How I act as I'm facing the footlights
And how she's C flying with both Bb feet on the D ground
I guess G it's a sequel to our Em story
>From the D journey ?tween heaven and Bm hell
With G half the time thinking of what D might have been been
And C half thinkin' Bb just as D well
I guess G only A7 time will D tell
