Beaumont Hayes Carll Capo 3
I saw you leanin[C]g on a memory, with your [Am]back turned to the crowd
In that litt[F]le bar on Murphy, where they p[G]lay guitar too loud
There were people drinking whiskey, there were hearts about to leave
It was cold as hell for Houston, it was almost New Year?s Eve
[F]All the way from Beaumont, with a w[G]hite rose in my hand
I coul[C]d not wait [Am]forever babe I [F]hope you u[G]nders[C]tand
The night was feeling lucky, so I asked you to dance
And the way you looked up at me, made me think I had a chance
But when I put my arms around you, I knew you weren?t giving in
I hope it will be different if I pass this way again
All the way from Beaumont?..
I walked the road to get here, with a guitar and a case
I?d of stopped in Pasadena, if I?d known about this place
But you looked like forever, where the water meets the shore
I?ve been thinking ?bout you baby, I can?t do that anymore
I saw you leaning??
