The day before you came - ABBA chords

Singer/Band: ABBA


Tone: [Am] Capo: 3
Verse 1:
I [Am] must have left my house at eight, [F] because I always [E] do
My train i,m certain left the station just when it was [Am] due
I [Am] must have read the morning paper going into [G] town
Having gotten through the editorial, no doubt i,m I must have [C] frowned
I must have made my desk around a quarter after [G] nine
With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to be [C] signed
Chorus:
I [F] must have gone to lunch at [E] half past twelve or [Am] so
The usual [Dm] place, the usual bunch
And [D] still on top of this I'm pretty [B7] sure it must have [E] rained
The day before you [Am] came
Verse 2:
I [Am] must have lit my seventh [F] cigarette at half past [E] two
And at the time I never even noticed I was [Am] blue
I must have kept on dragging through the business of the [G] day
Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me [C] away
At five I must have left, there's no exception to the [G] rule
A matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished [C] school
Bridge:
The [F] train back home again
[Am] Undoubtedly I must have read the [Dm] evening paper then
Oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within its usual [E] frame
The day before you [Am] came
[Am] Ohhhhh ohhh [E] ohhh
[Dm] [G] Ohhhhhhhhh [Am] hhhhhh
[Am] Ahhhhh [Am] Ahhhhh [E] Ahhhh [Am] Ahhhhh
Verse 3:
I [Am] must have opened my front door at [F] eight o'clock or [E] so
And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to [Am] go
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on [G] TV
There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I didn't [C] see
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after [G] ten
I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed by [C] then
Chorus:
I [F] must have read a while the [E] latest one by [Am] Marilyn
French or [Dm] something in that style
It's funny, but I had no sense of [B7] living without [E] aim
The day before you [Am] came
Bridge:
And [F] turning out the light
I [Am] must have yawned and cuddled up for [Dm] yet another night
And rattling on the roof I must have [B7] heard the sound [E] of rain
The day before you [Am] came
[Am] Ohhhhh ohhh [E] ohhh
[D] Ohhhhhhhhh [Am] hhhhhh
[F] Ahhhhh [Am] Ahhhhh [Am] Ahhhh [E] Ahhhhh [Am] Ahhhhh
