Intro 

Verse 

G                Bm      Em       C 
If I ever get to Saginaw again, 
                         G              D      G 
A locale that's somewhat off the beaten track. 
                      Bm        Em      C 
Get to see the girl I never saw again 
                         G 
Who must know why I have never ventured back. 
G 
We we young, 
       Bm     Em 
And so alive 
          G               C 
And now I wonder if she'd cling to me, 
               G              D 
Become my very own as she did then, 
                         G 
If I ever get to Saginaw again. 


Bm Em C 

Verse 

G                Bm      Em     C 
If I ever get to Saginaw again, 
                           G               D       G 
It won't be in Spring with meadows turning green. 
                      Bm           Em     C 
It won't be to tangle with the law again. 
                             G 
And it won't be with someone only seventeen, 
G 
Who gave her love, 
            Bm     Em 
And made me hers. 
             C 
And when you find the one you're dreaming of 

Who thinks to ask, 'How old is love?', 
D 
Not 'when' 
                             G 
You may never get to Saginaw again. 

Bm Em C 

Verse 

G                Bm      Em    C 
If I ever get to Saginaw again 
                  G                D       G 
I will get to see son who bears my name. 
                 Bm                        C 
And perhaps I'll quietly withdraw again 
                      G 
When I see the little man that he became. 
G 
And how I yearn 
             Bm    Em 
To watch him grow. 
           C 
A father's love is maybe all it takes 
                                    D 
To not repeat those sad mistakes of men 
D 
If I ever get to Saginaw again
