VERSE 1:
Am D
She was not the girl next door
G C
But the girl from 'round the corner
Am D
S'at the tail end of grade four
G C
When she came to school one morning
C D G G/F# Em
All eyes were upon her as she took her seat
C D G G/F# Em
Her name was Amanda, with pretty eyes of green
C D G
And hair of blonde, strawberry blonde


VERSE 2:
Springtime and dandelions
And summer 'round the corner
At the tail end of age nine
With a million dreams before her
She lived with her mother in an old decrepit house
If there was trouble at home she kept it to herself
All summer long, the strawberry blonde


CHORUS 1:
Em Bm C G
And by her face there was no way to tell
C G D B7
It seemed like all was well in her world
Em Bm C G
But the neighbours said her mother had lost her will
C G
To gin and sleeping pills
D G
It was no life for a little girl

CHORUS 2:
Still I see her face framed in blue sky
At the top of a slide coming down
And when the sirens wailed her mother had failed to rise
All the neighbours stood outside
As Amanda just stared at the ground


VERSE 3:
Time flies and years are piled
I'd forgotten all about her
When I saw her down the aisle
Of a streetcar with her daughter
Then I heard Amanda say as she got up
"C'mon Samantha, girl this is our stop"
C D C
And they were gone,
D G Gadd2 G
Two strawberry blondes
