A                         A(?)

It's a long time since I saw you last

A                     A(?)

So tell me how you've been

Em                  F#m             Bm 

Did you ever get to buy that yellow coat?

A                     A(?) 

Do the flowers in you window box

A                         A(?) 

Still smile when you walk in?

Em               F#m            Bm 

Did you read the letters that I wrote?

                         G

And I've been on the road since Christmas

G

But it don't seem so long

A                                   D

Outside of that there isn't much to say.

G

I cut down on my drinkin' some

                       Bm   Em 

And wrote another song

Em                  F#m             Bm 

I wish you wouldn't look at me that way

A                A(?)

Remember all the mornings

A                    A(?)

We'd walk around the park

Em                F#m             Bm 

The nights we babysat for Billy's kids

A                    A(?) 

And all the times we used to talk

A                 A(?) 

Of having one ourselves

Em               F#m          Bm 

I don't remember why we never did

       G

Do the neighbors still complain a bit

G

When the music gets too loud?

A                                       D

Does your old cat still sleep up on the bed?

G

And do you still walk around

                                  Bm  Em 

With your head up in the clouds?

Em               F#m               Bm 

Have you heard a single thing I've said?

A

It's a two day drive to New York

G                D 

Guess I'd better go

Em                   F#m               Bm 

Have you noticed the weather's gettin' cold?

A                            A(?)

And it's a long time since I saw you last

A                  A(?)

Tell me how you've been

Em                  F#m             Bm 

Did you ever get to buy that yellow coat?

Em                  F#m             Bm 

Did you ever get to buy that yellow coat?
