The Very Lucky Few --- Bob Clevenger  ©2006

My first song -- well, first that still survives, anyway.

 

Oh I [A]met her there in a [D]dingy bar,
She was [A]singin for her [E]pay.
When her [A]set was done we [D]talked a while
ĎBout our [A]hopes for a [E]future [A]day. 

            And the [D]roads to see are [A]many
            And the paths to reach them, [E]too.
            Every [A]now and then they [D]meet again
            For the [A]very [E]lucky [A]few. 

Well I [A]joined her band and went [D]on the road,
Singiní [A]nights and traveliní [E]days.
It was [A]hard to earn a [D]living wage
So we [A]went out [E]separate [A]ways. 

            And the [D]towns to see are [A]many
            And the paths to reach them, [E]too.
            Every [A]now and then they [D]meet again
            For the [A]very [E]lucky [A]few. 

Now I [A]signed up on a [D]freighter,
Per- [A]haps to forget [E]her.
But [A]every new port [D]that Iíve seen,
I re- [A]member [E]as a [A]blur. 

            And the [D]lands to see are [A]many
            And the paths to reach them, [E]too.
            Every [A]now and then they [D]meet again
            For the [A]very [E]lucky [A]few. 

Well I [A]got on board a [D]singleship,
My [A]mind must be quite [E]lame,
For Iím [A]searching all the [D]universe
To re- [A]kindle [E]an old [A]flame. 

            And the [D]memories are [A]many
            And the paths to reach them, [E]too.
            Every [A]now and then they [D]meet again
            For the [A]very [E]lucky [A]few. 

Yes, Iíve [A]come now to the [D]meeting place,
The [A]one I know so [E]well,
And I [A]see her waiting [D]there for me
At the [A]old Mars-[E]port Ho-[A]tel. 

            And the [D]worlds Iíve seen are [A]many
            And the paths to reach them, [E]too.
            Every [A]now and then they [D]meet again
            For the [A]very [E]lucky [A]few.
