  Em                                                 B7
I must have left my house at eight because I always do
                                                         Em
My train I'm certain left the station just when it was due
                                               D
I must have read the morning paper going into town
                                                                G
And having gotten through the editorial no doubt I must have frowned
                                                 D7
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine
                                                            G
With letters to be read and heaps of papers waiting to be signed
   C    Em
I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so 
           Am
The usual place the usual bunch
    Am7                                                B7
And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have rained
                    Em
The day before you came

  Em                                                 B7
I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
                                             Em
And at the time I never even noticed I was blue
                                               D
I must have kept on dragging through the business of the day
                                                   G
Without really knowing anything I hid a part of me away
                                                 D7
At five I must have left there's no exception to the rule
                                                  G
A matter of routine I've done it ever since I finished school
   C
The train back home again
   Em                                Am
Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
    Am7                                           B7
Oh yes I'm sure my life was well within it's usual frame
                  Em
The day before you came

  Em                                             B7
I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so
                                             Em
And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to go
                                         D
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV
                                                   G
There's not I think a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see
                                             D7
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten
                                                  G
I need a lot of sleep and so I like to be in bed by then
   C
I must have read a while
   Em                                Am
The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that style
    Am7                                      B7
It's funny but I had no sense of living without aim
                Em
The day before you came
   C
And turning out the light
   Em                                Am
I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night
    Am7                                      B7
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
                Em
The day before you came
