[D]Payphones all were ringing a[G]s the crowd went roa[A]ring by,[D]

in love.

[D] [G] [A] 
Me and you would roundez-v[D]ous, but I found your number changed

I've been playing this song for years, but I never actually wrote it down to
send it in until now. The best memory I have of this song is when Jimmy did
it acoustic both nights at Irvine Meadows in Irvine, CA on the '94 Fruitcakes
tour. Anyhoo, Enjoy!
