The One That Got Away

Steve Goodman

 DA7D
There were two old middle aged men,
 DA7D
They were sittin , in the corner bar.
 BmGD
They were all lying about what wonderful lovers they are.
 F#m
Bending each other's ears,
 D
Bending their elbows too.
 Bm
Holding their arms apart
 E7
The way that fishermen do, singin'

(CHORUS)
 DA7
You should have seen the one that got away,
 DA7D
Oh you should have seen the one that got away.

There were two old middle aged women,
And they were sitting in the beauty salon.
Waiting for their nails to dry,
And puttin' each other on.
Trading their recipes,
All of the ways to save
A hundred and one night stands
With a brand new permanent wave, singin'

(REPEAT CHORUS

Hindsight makes the heart grow fonder,
But that's what it costs
When you run around sayin' "I love you"
With your fingers crossed.
And it's too late to go back now
And that's just about as good as it gets,
For Rock'N'Roll Romeos and their juke box Juliets.
And you can see them out on the street
Trying to figure out what it all means.
When they try to make their lives complete
In the safety of their dreams.
By putting their arms around the one that got away.

(REPEAT CHORUS)
