Natalie  David Crosby



[E9]First time I [E]saw her
She was [E9]still in s[E]chool
[E9]Chewin' on a pencil
Playin' [E]pool
Stayin' [A]up all night [F#m]
Full of [E]dreams [E9] [E] [E9] [E]
[E9]I've known her [E]family
Ever s[E9]ince we were [E]small
[E9]Gettin' in trouble
Drivin' our [E]folks up the wall
[B]Wastin' [A]time
Yeah....but we had [E]fun [E9] [E] [E9] [E]
[E]She was gonna
Ride her [A9]bike to China
Sail [Bsus]away on a bottle t[B]op
And as the [E]years passed by
One night I [F#9]held her close to [F#]me
[A9]That was the first time I
Said I [Bsus]love [B]you
To [E]Natalie [E9] [E] [E9] [E]
[E9]Carousel was [E]crowded
So we [E9]talked for a [E]while
[E9]Natalie said, "Baby,
You know I [E]miss your smile...
Whenever you g[A]o away [F#m]
Away from [E]me [E9] [E] [E9] [E]
You know that [A9]time starts tickin'
When a l[Bsus]ove starts to [B]fade
I knew [Esus]something was [E]wrong but still
I [F#9]thought we had it [F#]made
[A]The first time I
Said I [Bsus]love [B]you
To [E]Natalie
[A9]That was the first time I
Said I [Bsus]love [B]you
To [A]Natalie[E]
Now I [D]look at her [F#m]pictures
And I [A]talk to the [B]walls
[D]Call out her [F#m]name
But S[D]he don't [A]hear
Me at a[E]ll
And she got [A]wild and restless
Tried [Bsus]everything
She could t[B]ake
One [E]night I tried to stop her
But [F#9]I was too l[F#]ate
[A]That was the last time I
Said I [Bsus]love [B]you
To [E]Natalie
And [A]that was the last time I
Said I l[Bsus]ove y[B]ou
To [E]Natalie
