This song should really be played in the key of E to be plucked
the same as the recording, but this version will do well for
by Beautiful South

[D]Line One [G] is the time
[D] when you, you [A]first stayed [G]over at [D]mine.
And we [A]drank our first [G]bottle of [D]wine.
[A] [G]Then we [D]cried.
Two, we're a[G]way,
[D]and we both, we [A]both had [G]nowhere to [D]stay.
Well the [A]bus shelters [G]always o[D]kay,
[A] [G]when you're [D]young.
Now you're [D]older and I look at your [G]face,
Every [D]wrinkle is so easy to [G]place,
And I [D]only write them down just in [Bm]case
You should [A]die.
Just take a look at these [D]crows feet, just [Bm]look
[G]Sitting on the prettiest [A]eyes,
[D]Sixty twenty-fifth of [Bm]Decembers,
[G]Fifty-nine fourth of Ju[A]lys.
[G]Not through the age or the [A]failure children,
[D]Not through the hate or des[Bm]pise.
[D]Take a good look at these [Bm]crows feet,
[A]Sitting on the [G]prettiest e[D]yes
Line Three, I forget,
But I think, I think it was our first ever bet,
And the horse we backed was short of a leg --
Four, in a park,
And the things, the things that people do in the dark.
I could hear the faintest beat of your heart
Then we did.
Just take a look at these crows feet, just look
Sitting on the prettiest eyes
60 25th of Decembers
59 4th of Julys
You can't have too many good times children
You can't have too many lines
Take a good look at these crows feet sitting on the prettiest eyes
Well my [D]eyes look like a [G]map of the [D]town
And my [D]teeth are either [G]yellow or they're [D]brown
But you'll [G]never hear the [A]crack of a [D]frown when you are [Bm]here
No you'll [G]never hear the [A]crack of a [D]frown.
Of a frown...
