Performed: Smokie[3]

C
Sally called when she got the word
F G C G
And she said I suppose you've heard - about Alice
C
Well I rushed to the window and I looked outside
F
I could hardly believe my eyes
G C G
As a big limousine rolled up - into Alice's drive
 
C
I don't know why she's leaving, away she's gonna go
F
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't want to know
G C G
Cause for twenty four years I've been living next door to Alice
C
Twenty four years waiting for the chance
F
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second chance
G F Em C G
Now I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice
 
C
Grew up together, two kids in a park
F G C G
We carved our initials deep in the bark - me and Alice
C
Now she walks through the door with her head held high
F
Just for a moment I catch her eye
G C G
The big limousine pulled slowly - out of Alice's drive
 
Chorus
 
C
Sally called back and asked how I felt
F G C G
And she said I know how to help - get over Alice
C
She said now Alice is gone, but I'm still here
F
You know I've been waiting for twenty four years
G C G
And the big limousine disappeared
 
Chorus
G F Em C
Now I've never get used to not living next door to Alice
