Living Next Door To Alice  Smokie

[G]Sally called when she got the word.
[C] She said:"I suppose you´ve heard[D]   about [G]Alice". [D7]
Well, I [G]rushed to the window, well I looked outside,
[C] I could hardly believe my eyes,
as a [D]big limousine pulled slowly into [G]Alice´s drive.[D7]


REFRAIN:
I [G]don´t know why she´s leaving or where she´s gonna go
but I [C]guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t want to know.
´Cos for [D7]twenty-four years I´ve been living next door to [G]Alice.[D7]
[G]Twenty-four years just waiting for the chance
to [C]tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance,
now I´ve [D]got to get used to not [C]living next [D]door to [G]Alice.[D7]


We [G]grew up together, two kids in the park.
[C] We carved our initials deep in the bark[D],  me and [G]Alice.[D7]
Now she [G]walks through the door with her head held high,
[C] just for a second I caught her eyes.
A [D]big limousine pulled slowly out of [G]Alice´s drive.[D7]
REFRAIN:
I [G]don´t know why she´s leaving or where she´s gonna go
but I [C]guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t want to know.
´Cos for [D7]twenty-four years I´ve been living next door to [G]Alice.[D7]
[G]Twenty-four years just waiting for the chance
to [C]tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance,
now I´ve [D]got to get used to not [C]living next [D]door to [G]Alice.[D7]
Now I´ve [D]got to get used to not [C]living next [D]door to [G]Alice.[D7]
(slow down)
Now I´ve [D]got to get used to not [C]living next [D]door to [G]Alice.

Hey thanks love the song missing the last verse:

"And Sally called back and asked how I felt
And she said I know how to help, get over Alice
She said, now Alice is gone, but I'm still here
you know I've been waiting for 24 years
And the big limosine dissapeared."

ok guys if you want to play along with Smokie on this song put a capo on fret 2 and play the chords as stated. This will give you the corect key sig for the original song.
