Carlene-crd

Phil Vassar

 EABC#mEABEC#mAB
                                       I was lousy at math, a failed historian
 EC#mAB
 Carlene was the valedictorian
 EC#mAB
I was the quarterback in the back of class
 EC#mABEAB
She was the whiz kid in horned rim glasses   
 EC#mAB
 It's been a long time since I've been around
 EC#mAB
 Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground
 EC#mAB
 I ended up by the old school yard
 EC#mAB
And this red head pulls up in a blue sports car
 F#mEAB
And says, "I bet you don't remember, I guess it's been forever."
 F#mG#mAB
 It took a second to put it all together and I said...
Chorus:
 EBA
 Ooh la la la la la
 BEAC#mB
Looking good Carlene  
 EBA
 Woh my my my my my
 BEC#m
 Times been good to you
 AB
If you know what I mean
 F#mE
 Girl you glitter like Hollywood
 F#mG#m
Good gosh Carlene
 ABEABC#mEAB
You sure are lookin good       
 EC#mAB
 She said, “Hop in let's go for a spin
 EC#mAB
Tell me whatcha been doing boy and where you been”
 EC#mAB
I said, “I write songs, you probably didn't know, but I
 EC#mABEAB
 Finally got a couple out on country radio”   
 EC#mAB
She said, "What a switch, ain't life funny, I've got a
 EC#mAB
 Ph.D  now I'm modeling for money."
 EC#mAB
 Imagine little miss 4 point 0 just
 EC#mAB
 Smiling for the camera on the cover of Vogue
 F#mEAB
I said, “You've come a long way since graduation, let me say without
reservation
 F#mG#mAB
 You've surpassed everyone's expectations”
CHORUS
 C#mB
I said, “I hope to see you again someday”
 AB
She said, “Another ten years is too long to wait
 F#mG#mAB
 Pick me up at my momma's at eight”
I said...
CHORUS
