G
This is the dinner prepared
Gmaj7
This is the dress that I made
G7
This is the child I brought up
E7 Am
And this is the woman you laid
C G
This is the woman you laid

G
This is the perfume I wore
Gmaj7
This is the hotel we stayed
G7
This is the way that I lay
E7 Am
And this is the woman you laid
C G
This is the woman you laid

D Bm Eb
We promised ourselves this is no one-night stand
D Bm Eb
Let us draw all the curtains and strike up the band
D Bm Eb
And I'm thrilled by the gentlest touch of your hand
D7
We pretend

G Gmaj7
There's a tear, there's a tear
G7 E7 Am Cm G
Not through confusion through fear, through fear

G
This is the smile that I wore
Gmaj7
This is the song that we played
G7
This is the way that I lay
E7 Am
And this is the woman you laid
C G
This is the woman you laid

D Bm Eb
Next morning our eyes filled with sleepy regret
D Bm Eb
A kiss and good-bye and a long cigarette
D Bm Eb
But the pillow I lay on is cold and it's wet
D7
Can't pretend

G Gmaj7
It's a tear, it's a tear
G7 E7 Am Cm G
Not through confusion through fear, through fear
Dm G Bb
And knowing at least that love came so near
Dm C G
Just adds to the weight of this bell bottomed tear
Gmaj7 G7 E7 Am Cm G

D Bm Eb
Roll out the red carpets and unplug the phone
D Bm Eb
Root out the photos you've already shown
D Bm Eb
'Cos this one night you won't sleep alone
D7
Just one night

G Gmaj7
It's a tear, it's a tear
G7 E7 Am Cm G
Not through confusion through fear, through fear
Dm G Bb
And knowing at least that love came so near
Dm C G
Just adds to the weight of this bell bottomed tear
Gmaj7 G7 E7 Am Cm G

G Gmaj7
There's a tear, there's a tear
G7 E7 Am Cm G
Not through confusion through fear, through fear
G7 E7 Am Cm G
Not through confusion through fear, through fear
