C  Bb  F                        Bb
       It started way back in third grade
F                     Bb 
I used to sit beside Emmy Lou Hays
F                C 
A pink dress a matching bow in her pony tail
      Bb                              C    
She kissed me on the school bus but told me not to tell
F                                 Bb
Next day I chased her around the play ground
F                                       Bb 
Across the monkey bars to the merry-go-round
F                         Bb
And Emmy Lou got caught passing me a note
Bb                                           C
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote

CHROUS:
F                                     Bb               C
Do you love me?  Do you wanna be my friend? And if you do,
             F                                Bb               C
Well then, don't be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to.
   Bb                     C                 F    C  Bb  F  C  Bb 
I think this is how love goes. Check yes or no


F                       Bb
Now we're grown up and she's my wife
F                          Bb 
Still like two kids with stars on our eyes
F                            Bb 
Ain't much changed I still chase Emmy Lou
F                       C
Up and down the hall around the bed in our room
F                               Bb
Last night I took her out in a white limozine
F                           Bb
Twenty years together she still gets to me
F                   Bb
Can't believe it's been that long ago
                          C  
When we got started with just a little note

chours, chorus,
ENDING: vamp of F C Bb
