Am                  G          Am   F      G             C
I've wondered where she'd wind up,  before she called or wrote.
    F             G   Am               G                Am
The answer's in a circle,  through the word 'Love' on a stamp,

She never mentioned Alabama,  so I don't understand.

A two-page letter written on,  Ramada stationary.

So the day she left she made it,  two hundred miles south.
        Am                    G         Am

on her way out of town.
     F                  C                   G           Am

       F                    C   Am
Hopin' there's that certain circle,  
            G                Am
Through the word 'Love' on a stamp.
Dm  C      G      C
