Modern Day Romance Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Modern Day Romance
By The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
[G]We met on the [C]highway, she flagged me down[G]
Had a flat on her [C]Stingray, with nobody a[G]round
So I helped her [Em]out, [C]she said climb [G]in[C]
So I [G]ditched me old [D]truck just to [C]see where the [D]party would [G]end
We spent the weekend in Reno in a honeymoon suite.
Never saw the casinos, barely took time to eat.
Well I never dreamed she'd take me that far.
But by Sunday that lady had taken a hold of my heart.
[G]It's just a modern day [C]romance, a new kind of [G]game
With no time to [D]slow dance[C] in the fast [G]lane.
Well I tried to [C]love her without any [G]strings[C]
But a [G]modern day [D]romance has [C]left me some [D]old-fashioned [G]pain
She never said goodbye, just a note by the phone
It said thanks for the good time, but it's time to move on.
Now I'm out here walking with my thumb in the air
Wondering where she might have gone and why I even care
