First Episode at Hienton Elton John
[Gm]I was one as you were one, [F]and we were two so much in love for[Eb]ever.
I loved the white socks [Bb/D]that you wore.
But you don't wear white [Gm7/Eb]socks no more, now you're a [Dm]woman.
I [Gm]joked about your turned-up nose, [F]criticized your school girl clothes-
Eb Bb Gm7/Eb | Dsus D |
but would I then have paced these roads - to love you?
[Asus] For [A]seasons come [Dm]& seasons go.[Asus] Bring forth the[A7sus] rain [-] [A7] - [Dm] the sun & snow-
make Valerie a [Gm]woman. And Valerie is [F]lonely.
[Em]No more to roam on the [Am]snow hills of Hienton.
Unde[Em]cided with the guardians of the [Am]older generation.
A d[F]oormat was a sign of welcome [C]- in the winter months to come.
And in the [Dm]summer laughing through the [Am]castle ruins we'd run.
[Em]For the quadrangle sang to the [Am]sun, and the grace of our [Em]feeling -
And the candle burned l[F]ow.
As we talked of the [C]future underneath the [Dm]ceiling.
[Gm]There were tears in the sky [F]& the clouds in your eyes were just [Eb]cover.
For your thighs were the [Bb/D]cushions of my love and yo[Gm7/Eb]urs for each ot[Dsus]her.[-] [D]
[Bb]The songs still are sung. [Ab] It was fun to be young.
But p[Eb]lease don't be s[F]ad where you [Gm]are.
I am who I am. [F]You are who you are.[Eb]
[Bb/D] Now Valerie's a [Gm7/Eb]woman. [Bb/D] Now Valerie's a [Gm7/Eb]woman.
Now Valerie's a wo - man.
