VERSE 1:
Am               D
 She was not the girl next door
         G                    C
 But the girl from 'round the corner
Am                 D
 S'at the tail end of grade four
          G                  C
 When she came to school one morning
C               D      G       G/F#     Em
 All eyes were upon her as she took her seat
C              D     G            G/F#    Em
 Her name was Amanda, with pretty eyes of green
             C     D            G
 And hair of blonde, strawberry blonde


VERSE 2:
 Springtime and dandelions
 And summer 'round the corner
 At the tail end of age nine
 With a million dreams before her
 She lived with her mother in an old decrepit house
 If there was trouble at home she kept it to herself
 All summer long, the strawberry blonde

CHORUS 1:
Em          Bm  C             G
 And by her face there was no way to tell
C               G           D             B7
 It seemed like all was well in her world
Em                  Bm  C              G
 But the neighbours said her mother had lost her will
C           G
 To gin and sleeping pills
    D                        G
 It was no life for a little girl


SOLO: (pick melody out from within chords)
    Am7               D                 G

CHORUS 2:
 Still I see her face framed in blue sky
 At the top of a slide coming down
 And when the sirens wailed her mother had failed to rise
 All the neighbours stood outside
 As Amanda just stared at the ground


VERSE 3:
 Time flies and years are piled
 I'd forgotten all about her
 When I saw her down the aisle
 Of a streetcar with her daughter
 Then I heard Amanda say as she got up
 "C'mon Samantha, girl this is our stop"
               C    D   C
 And they were gone,
D               G    Gadd2 G
 Two strawberry blondes
