Intro:

C C

C F^

              C      F^
She's walking away
               C      F^
She's making a stand
                  C         F^
She's moving to a new life
                    C        F^
She's moving with a new man
                 C        F^
But I got news for her
                      G          F^
The kind that I can't say
                   C             B          F^
Cause I came to my senses just a little too late

     Am            B          F^
So I watch her drive away
      C        B
And I wave goodbye
Am          B           F^    C       B     F^
And as her tail-lights fade into the night sky
      C   B   F^                         C          B  F^
I say hey         Don't you leave me, Annalee, alone
      C       B   F^                           C         B     F^
Lover please          Turn that car around and come back home
    C    B  F^                        C         B     F^
New York          is such a beautiful city, I'm sure
              C       B  F^
It's just too far for my California girl

C     F^

           C     F^              C     F^
She was so sweet,     she was so kind
                      C   F^                     C              F^
She'll leave it up to me,      not to make up my mind in time
                         C            F^               G        F^
So I guess she'll be the one to which no one will ever compare
                              C    B        F^
And I guess she couldn't wait on me forever, yeah

        Am         B         F^
So I'll watch her drive away
         C        B
And I'll wave goodbye
Am          B           F^    C       B     F^
And as her tail-lights fade into the night sky
      C   B   F^                         C          B  F^
I say hey         Don't you leave me, Annalee, alone
      C       B   F^                           C         B     F^
Lover please          Turn that car around and come back home
    C    B  F^                        C         B     F^
New York          is such a beautiful city, I'm sure
              C       B  F^
It's just too far for my California girl

       C                        F^             C             F^
Do you remember when we used to drive with the windows down?
       C                           F^           C               F^
Do you remember how I used to hold you when the lights went out?
       C                                  F^                     C                F^
Do you remember when we looked at the stars, and listened to the waves come down?
       C             F^
Do you remember the good times?
       C             F^
Do you remember the good times?
       C                 F^
Do you remember all the good times?
        Am            G            F^
'Cause I remember the good times we had

   C   B  F^                        C          B  F^
So hey,     don't you leave me, Annalee, alone
      C               B            F^
Lover please please please please
                         C         B     F^
Turn your car around and come back home
    C    B  F^                        C         B     F^
New York          is such a beautiful city, I'm sure
              C       B  F^
