The Day Before You Came  ABBA



I [Em]must have left my house at eight because I always d[B7]o
My train I'm certain left the station just when it was du[Em]e
I must have read the morning paper going into t[D]own
And having gotten through the editorial no doubt I must have fro[G]wned
I must have made my desk around a quarter after n[D7]ine
With letters to be read and heaps of papers waiting to be si[G]gned
I m[C]ust have gone to lunch
at [Em]half past twelve or so The usual p[Am]lace the usual bunch
And [Am7]still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have r[B7]ained
The day before you c[Em]ame
I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
And at the time I never even noticed I was blue
I must have kept on dragging through the business of the day
Without really knowing anything I hid a part of me away
At five I must have left there's no exception to the rule
A matter of routine I've done it ever since I finished school
The train back home again
Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
Oh yes I'm sure my life was well within it's usual frame
The day before you came
E Cdim Adim B7_ E Edim Em B7 Em (*)
I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so
And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to go
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV
There's not I think a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten
I need a lot of sleep and so I like to be in bed by then
I must have read a while
The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that style
It's funny but I had no sense of living without aim
The day before you came
And turning out the light
I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
The day before you came
E Cdim Adim B7_ E Edim Em B7 Em x2 (*)
