	        INTRO   C  C9  F  C   
	         C                    C9	 
I thought I knew, the girl so well 
F		  C 
if she was sad, I couldn't tell 
			        C9 
I missed the point, I missed the sings 
F	    		    C 	  
  so if she's gone, the fault is mine 
   Dm				          C 
I know, I know, a whole lot of little things 
       Dm 			            C	 
and even though, I could face them one by one 
		 G7sus 
she would still be gone 
 
Chorus 
G7		   C 
   Her eyes are blue 
	        C/E	 
her hair is long 
	 F 
sixty four 
	 C/G 
she was born 
      G               C 
in Batton rouge 
                C/E 
the very song 
	     F 
is in my life 
              C/G       G          Am 
I meorized her ev'ry move 
	       C/G		        Fmaj7 
I knew her books, her car, her clothes 
           C      C/E          F                 C/G    G  
	Csus 
but I paid,    no  attention   to what mattered most 
 
Verse 2 
I never asked, she never said 
And when she cried I turned my head 
She dreamed her dreams behind closed doors 
That made them easy to ignore 
And I know, I know, I missed the forest for the trees 
Now all I have to show 
Or would she walk out the door? 
The cold facts and nothin' more 
 
Chorus 
 
Chorus 2 
Her eyes are blue, her hair is long,   sixy four 
she was born, in Batton Rouge,  
Her father's tall, her mother's gone, 
She moved out when she was two, 
The way she laughed, the way she loved, 
Oh my God what did I do?
