I said [G]howdy there lady 
This [C]sure is some [G]party 
I've [C]never seen [G]anything 
Like [D]this before 
She said [G]howdy there honey 
It's [C]just barely [G]started 
But if [C]you think this is [G]something 
Just [D]stand here some more 

Then she [G]looked at me 
Then she [C]laughed at me[G] 
Then she lifted her [D]glass to me 
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]   [G][D][G]

I said that [G]girl in the corner 
[C]She looks so [G]pretty 
Oh the [C]girls all [G]around her 
She [D]makes 'em look plain 
[G]Lady I need a drink 
Can I [C]bring you [G]another 
I'm [C]hoping these [G]bubbles 
They [D]might know her [G]name 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lovett_lyle/the_girl_in_the_corner_crd.html ]
Well she [G]looked at me 
Then she [C]laughed at [G]me 
Then she lifted her [D]glass to me 
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]  [G][D][G]
{colb}
But [G]when I returned 
Cham[C]pagne in my [G]hands 
[C]There stood two [G]strangers 
Where [D]we both did stand 
And the [G]lady was gone 
And the [C]evening wore [G]on 
And the [C]girl in the [G]corner 
Was [D]never al[G]one 

But she [G]looked at me 
And she [C]smiled at [G]me 
But she turned her eyes [D]away from me 
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]  [G][D][G]

[G]Tim he was tall 
And [C]Susan was [G]smart 
And [C]Francis she [G]looked 
Like a [D]fine work of art 
[G]Melissa was sad 
But [C]that made her [G]sweet 
And [C]Dan and [G]Elaine 
Had the [D]world at their feet 
[G]Debra had Pliny 
[C]Lisa had [G]Tony 
And the [C]girl in the [G]corner 
She could've [D]had anybody 
[G]Richard was cool 
And [C]Tubb he was [G]funny 
And [C]the tarot card [G]lady 
She had [D]everyone's [G]money 
{colb}
So I [G]said my goodbyes 
When it [C]came time to [G]leave 
And [C]as I walked [G]out 
Someone [D]pulled at my sleeve 
She said [G]honey we never did of[C]ficially meet 
[C]But I sure am [G]happy you [D]came 

She said that [G]girl in the corner 
She's [C]more than [G]pretty 
And [C]man you're not the [G]first 
To look [D]over her way 
But [G]if you still wanted 
I [C]could introd[G]uce you 
But [C]you never will be the [G]same 

Then she [G]looked at me 
Then she [C]laughed at [G]me 
Then she extended her [D]hand to me 
And the [G]rest they say is [C]history [G]  [G][D][G]
