The Day Before You Came
* = 2/4 measure
Otherwise in 4/4.


                                    |  *        |  |
    Must have left my house at eight, because I always do
     |                                    | *             |  | |
    My train, I'm certain, left the station just when it was due
    |                              | *             |  |
    I must have read the morning paper going into town

    And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I must have frowned

I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine

With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to be signed

I      must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so

The usual place, the usual bunch
  |                             | -5 *         |      |
And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have rained

The day before you came

|                           | *               |   |
I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
  |                      |          * |   |
And at the time I never even noticed I   was  blue
|                                   |         *    |  | |
I must have kept on dragging through the business     of the day

Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me a - way

At five I must have left, there's no exception to the rule

A matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished   school

The train back home again,

undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
 |                               | -5 *      |     |
Oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within  its usual frame

The day before you came

  (  ) |    |  | |

                                   |  *           |  |
    I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so
      |                               |          * |  |
    And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to  go
      |                           | *           |  |
    I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV

    There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see

I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten

I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed  by then

I must have read a while

The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that style
   |                          | -5 *         |  |
It's funny, but I had no sense of liv - ing without aim

The day before you came


And turning out the light

I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night
  |                              | -5 *          |  |
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain

The day before you came

  (  ) |    |  | |
