Living Next Door To Alice

Smokie

 G
 Sally called when she got the word.
 CDGD7
  She said:"I suppose you´ve heard   about Alice".  
 G
Well, I rushed to the window, well I looked outside,
 C
  I could hardly believe my eyes,
 DGD7
as a big limousine pulled slowly into Alice´s drive. 

REFRAIN:
 G
don´t know why she´s leaving or where she´s gonna go
 C
but I guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t want to know.
 D7GD7
´Cos for twenty-four years I´ve been living next door to Alice. 
 G
 Twenty-four years just waiting for the chance
 C
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance,
 DCDGD7
now I´ve got to get used to not living next door to Alice. 

 G
We grew up together, two kids in the park.
 CDGD7
  We carved our initials deep in the bark,  me and Alice. 
 G
Now she walks through the door with her head held high,
 C
  just for a second I caught her eyes.
 DGD7
big limousine pulled slowly out of Alice´s drive. 

REFRAIN:
 G
don´t know why she´s leaving or where she´s gonna go
 C
but I guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t want to know.
 D7GD7
´Cos for twenty-four years I´ve been living next door to Alice. 
 G
 Twenty-four years just waiting for the chance
 C
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance,
 DCDGD7
now I´ve got to get used to not living next door to Alice. 
 DCDGD7
Now I´ve got to get used to not living next door to Alice. 
(slow down)
 DCDG
Now I´ve got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

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.

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."
