        Intro:          A       E       A  (on 3, quick strums) 
        (A)  I had forgotten the (Bm) dress you wore 
        The (D) first time I ever saw you walking (A) through a door 
        And I had forgotten your (Bm) secret smile 
        That (D) seemed to say it's OK you can (A) stay a while 
        And I (D) never (A) kept a (E) trace 
        (D) Of your (A) voice your (E) touch your taste 
        (F#m) Or your per(Bm)fume 
        (D) I had for(A)gotten you 
        Then I got a letter it came today 
        From an old friend this is what he had to say 
        You know Frank Hannon well his wife just died 
        But the big news is he's already found another bride 
        You may remember her 
        She says you once went out with her 
        She was 22 
        She still remembers you 
                (F#m) She's been a widow for six (A) years 
                Now her children have left (D) home 
                She nursed Frank's wife for a (Bm) while 
                But nobody knew this was (E) going on 
                G       D       F#m     E       (2 bars each) 
        Now Mary comes to me she turns out the light 
        The after a while she asks me if I'm all right 
        Well I turn to hold her but I'm not there 
        Tonight I feel like both of us are made of air 
        Mary's hair is turning grey 
        And she worries about her weight 
        Do you too? 
        I had forgotten you 
        Nothing new I had forgotten you
