|D    |E    |G    |D    |./.    |E    |G    |D    |./.    |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------1:

D                                |E
MERRY ENGLAND LIVES JUST SOUTH OF NOTTINGHILL,

  |G                                    |D          |
IN DAILY DREAMS OF SHAKESPEARE LIKE SOME PISCES WILL.

./.                               |E
THOUGH SHE'S NEVER BEEN BEYOND THE LADBROKE GATE,

   |G                               |D
THE WORLD HAS SPUN AROUND THERE MANY TIMES OF LATE.
======================================================================CHORUS:

   |Bm                |D
CAN CAROLINE REMEMBER, HE THAT DID BEFRIEND HER,

   |G                                |D   (2-count)  |A
AND SCARCELY TOUCHED THE BEAUTY, OF A SADNESS  ON HER SOUL.

  |Bm                      |D
SO SUBTLE WERE HER CHANGES, NO ONE EVEN NOTICED,

    |G                            |D  (2-count)  |A
THAT MANY YEARS OF CRYING  AND SHE BARELY  LET IT SHOW.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rodney_crowell/the_one_about_england_crd.html ]
          |G                 A7             |D     |./.    |
THAT'S THE PRICE YOU HAVE TO PAY  TO GROW SO OLD.

D                                     |E
ENGLAND'S TURNING GREEN FROM ALL THOSE YEARS OF RAIN,

    |G                             |D           |
LIKE MOSS ALONG THE FENCES DOWN OL' MEMORY LANE.

./.                       |E
POETRY IN MOTION WHILE SHE STANDS THERE STILL,

    |G                       |D           |
SOME MAIDEN IN A CASTLE UP ON NOTTING-HILL.
