                The Carter Family - from No Secrets - 1972

A                      Em7

The Carter family lived next door

A               Em7

For almost 14 years

A                      Em7

With Gwen and I inseperatable

A                      Em7

D                    G7

Then Gwen began to bore me

           Cmaj7           Am7

With her giggles and her fears

Dm7                         Fmaj7

The day the Carters moved away

G7                 Cmaj7                  

I had to fake my tears

Bm        C       G

Oh   oh oh oh oh oh

G     Eb                 Bb

I told new friends Gwen Carter

A7                   D

Had become a silly pest

G                    D

And then I found I missed her

C      Cmaj7               G

More than I'd ever have guessed

A                      Em7

Grandma used to nag at me

A                      Em7

To straighten up my spine

A                      Em7

To act respectful and read good books

A                      Em7

To take care of what was mine

D                    G7

I hated being criticized

  Cmaj7           Am7

And asking her permission

Dm7                         Fmaj7

So what if her advise was wise

G7                 Cmaj7 

It always hurt to listen

Bm        C       G

Oh   oh oh oh oh oh

G     Eb                 Bb

I didn't cry when Granny died

A7                   D

She made me so depressed

G                    D

And then I found I missed her

C      Cmaj7               G

More than I'd ever have guessed

A                      Em7

You used to make me moan in bed

A                      Em7

But that can't be enough

A                      Em7

My friends complained your jokes were crude

A                      Em7

Your manners were too rough

D                    G7

Don't know just what I wanted

  Cmaj7           Am7

But I know I wanted more

Dm7                    Fmaj7

Someone smooth, presentable

G7                 Cmaj7 

To blend with my decor

Bm        C       G

Oh   oh oh oh oh oh

A                      Em7

And now at night I think of how

A                      Em7

You grinned when you undressed

A                Em7

And I find I miss you

A                      Em7

More than I'd ever have guessed

G   A   Em7
