"Carlene"
by Phil Vassar

*Chord changes are really fast in this song, I tried to write them above the 
exact word in the lyric the chord changes at*

Intro: E   A   B <--(3 times)
       E   A   B  C#m
       E   A   B

E              C#m      A         B
I was lousy at math, a failed historian
E       C#m      A      B
Carlene was the valedictorian
       E         C#m          A       B
I was the quarterback in the back of class
    E            C#m     A          B     E   A   B
She was the whiz kid in horned rim glasses
E                C#m         A          B
It's been a long time since I've been around
E               C#m     A        B
Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground
E       C#m        A          B
I ended up by the old school yard
          E             C#m      A          B
And this red head pulls up in a blue sports car
           F#m        E             A              B
And says, "I bet you don't remember, I guess it's been forever."
F#m        G#m       A           B
It took a second to put it all together and I said...

Chorus:
E      B     A
Ooh la la la la la
  B      E       A   C#m  B
Looking good Carlene
E      B     A
Woh my my my my my
B          E      C#m
Times been good to you
        A           B
If you know what I mean
F#m                    E
Girl you glitter like Hollywood
     F#m     G#m
Good gosh Carlene
     A        B          E   A   B   C#m   E   A   B
You sure are lookin good


E          C#m          A        B
She said, “Hop in let's go for a spin
         E           C#m            A         B
Tell me whatcha been doing boy and where you been”
         E        C#m        A               B
I said, “I write songs, you probably didn't know, but I
E            C#m            A       B     E   A   B
Finally got a couple out on country radio”
           E       C#m     A           B
She said, "What a switch, ain't life funny, I've got a
E  C#m         A            B
Ph.D  now I'm modeling for money."
E        C#m        A       B
Imagine little miss 4 point 0 just
E               C#m            A        B
Smiling for the camera on the cover of Vogue
         F#m                           E          A              B
I said, “You've come a long way since graduation, let me say without 
reservation
F#m       G#m          A          B
You've surpassed everyone's expectations”


CHORUS

           C#m                B
I said, “I hope to see you again someday”
            A                    B
She said, “Another ten years is too long to wait
F#m     G#m       A          B
Pick me up at my momma's at eight”

I said...
