The day before you came (ABBA)

Emi B7 1. I must have left my house at eight because I always do Emi My train I'm certain left the station just when it was due D I must have read the morning paper going into town G And having gotten through the editorial no doubt I must have frowned D7 I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine G With letters to be read and heaps of papers waiting to be signed C I must have gone to lunch Emi Ami at half past twelve or so The usual place the usual bunch Ami7 B7 And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have rained Emi The day before you came 2. 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 away 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 Oh yes I'm sure my life was well within it's usual frame The day before you came 3. 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 It's funny but I had no sense of living without aim The day before you came And turning out the light I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain The day before you came
