A                                                     D
Sally called when she got the word,
D                                                        E           A        E
And she said: "I suppose you've heard -  about Alice".
             A
When I rushed to the window,
And I looked outside,
D                                                      E
And I could hardly believe my eyes -
E                                               A                  E
As a big limousine rolled up into Alice's drive...
           A
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving,
Or where she's gonna go,
    D
I guess she's got her reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
                E
'Cos for twenty-four years
                                                A        E
I've been living next door to Alice.
A
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
      D
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
                 E                                 D                            A        E
Now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice...
A  D  E...
We grew up together, two kids in the park,
We carved our initials, deep in the bark, me and Alice.
Now she walks through the door,
With her head held high,
Just for a moment, I caught her eye,
As a big limousine pulled slowly
Out of Alice's drive.
A  D  E...
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving,
Or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
'Cos for twenty-four years
I've been living next door to Alice.
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice...
A  D  E...
And Sally called back and asked how I felt,
And she said: "I know how to help -
Get over Alice".
She said: "Now Alice is gone,
But I'm still here,
You know I've been waiting
For twenty-four years..."
And a big limousine dissapeared...
A  D  E...
I don't know why she's leaving,
Or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
'Cos for twenty-four years
I've been living next door to Alice.
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
But I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...
Now I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...

G                      Em               G     Em
Don't play your rock'n'roll to me,
G                  Em                     G   Em
That ain't the way it's meant to be,
G                    Em            G     Em
I ain't so blind that I can't see,
C           D          G    Em
Just let it lie, let it be.

Well I know you think I'm crazy, hangin' round,
G                                  Em                              G                    Em
But I was sort of hopin' you'd change, from the girl I'd found.
C                                                         D    G             Em
But your words just sound like rock 'n' roll lies to me,
C                                     D                              G                   Em
And they're just about as burned out, as a worn out forty-five,
C                                            D                     G    Em
And you can't expect them to keep our love alive.
G  Em  G  Em..
So, don't play your rock'n'roll to me,
That ain't the way it's meant to be,
I ain't so blind that I can't see,
Just let it lie, let it be.

Don't play your Rock n' Roll to me.
G  Em  G  Em...
Well I guess you had me fooled for a while,
With your come-on looks, and your Mona Lisa smile.
But your rock'n'roll is getting out of time, to me,
Go sing your lines to someone else, that someone else may be,
The fool you always thought you saw in me.
G  Em  G  Em...
So, don't play your rock'n'roll to me,
That ain't the way it's meant to be,
I ain't so blind that I can't see,
Just let it lie, let it be.
C  D  C  D...
So, don't play your Rock n' Roll, no,  
Don't play your Rock n' Roll, no,
Don't play your Rock n' Roll to me.

Easy Guitar Tabs : Smokie – So if you think you know how to love me




 
Am                                                 G
A breathless drive on a downtown street
Am                                          G
Motorbike ride in the mid-day heat
C                                                    G
The dust that hung from the desert skies
                                        D                      D7
Run, though we run it still burned our eyes
Am  G  Am  G...
Oh, yes we can walk on the wild, wild side of life
And our movements traced by a stranger close by your side
And in the shadows of a promise, you can take my hand
And show me the way to understand
                Am                                 G
So if you think you know how to love me
                 Am                               G
And you think you know what I need
                    Am                G
And if you really, really want me to stay
D                                   D7
You've got to lead the way
                   Am                                G
Yes, if you think you know how to love me
                Am                                G
And you think you can stand by me
                   Am                 G
And if you really, really want me to stay
D                                   G
You've got to lead the way
Am  G  Am  G...
A reckless night in a nameless town
And we moved out of sight, with a silent sound
A beach that wept with deserted waves
That's where we slept, knowing we'd be safe
Am  G  Am  G...
Now you may think you can walk on the wild, wild side with me
But there's a lot I can learn, and a lot that I've yet to see
You know you've got my life lying in your hands
It's up to you to make me understand
Am  G  Am  G...
So if you think you know how to love me
And you think you know what I need
And if you really, really want me to stay
You've got to lead the way
Yes, if you think you know how to love me
And you think you can stand by me
And if you really, really want me to stay
You've got to lead the way
Am  G  Am  G...
So if you think you know how to love me
And you think you know what I need
And if you really, really want me to stay
You've got to lead the way
Yes, if you think you know how to love me
And you think you can stand by me
And if you really, really want me to stay
You've got to lead the way
