         CARLENE      Phil Vassar

E               A             B
I was lousy at math failed historian 
  E      A                B
Carlene was the Valedic-torian
             E     A           B 
I was the quarter-back in the back of the class
                 E           A            B     E A B
And she was the wiz kid in horn rimmed glasses-es
E               A                  B
Been long time since I'be been a-round
           E     A          B   
Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground
E                  A          B
I ended up by the old school yard
          E                      A           B
And this red head pulls up in a blue sports car and says
  C#m                B
I be you don't re-member  I guess it's been forever
C#m                               B
It took a second to put it all together  I said

CHORUS:
E               A               B
Oh la la la la la la  looking good Carlene
    E                 A              B
Wo my my my my my my my time's been good to you
B             
If you know what I mean
A                         E
Girl you glinter like Hollywood
      B                                 E   E A B E A B
Good God Carlene you sure are looking good


              E            A         B
And she said Hop in let's go for a spin
         E                              A               B 
Tell me what you've been doing boy and where've you've been
       E                  A                  B
I said I write songs and you probably don't know
       E             A                B            E  A B
And finally got a couple out on the country radio-oh-oh-oh
            E             A           B
She said, What a switch Ain't life funny
      E        A             B
I've got my ph-D  now I'm modeling for money
   E                A 
Imagine little Miss 4 point oh  
       B                          
Just smiling for the camera on the cover of Vogue
         C#m                       B
I said, Come a long ways since graduation Let me say without reservation
      C#m                         B
You surpassed everyone's expect-ations now        go to chorus
A
I said I hope to see you again someday
E
She said another ten years is too long to wait
A
Pick me up at my momma's at eight

Go to Chorus to ending

ENDING:
    E              A           B  
Oh la la la la la la looking good Carlene
    E                 A              B
Wo my my my my my my my time's been good to you
B
If you know what I mean
