Aubrey

by: Bread

((INTRO:)) 
   [G-G/F#-Em-GM7-C-Em-Am-D7-]


[G    G/F#           Em]
And Aubrey was her name
[GM7       C     Bm]
A not so very ordinary girl or
[  Am-D7]
  name
[              G-G/F#-Em]
But who's to blame
[       Em+M7-Em7]
For a love       that wouldn't
[   Em6]
  bloom
[C]
For the hearts that never
[ GM7]
  played in tune
[Am            Bm]
Like a lovely melody that
[   C            Bm]
  everyone can sing
[Am            Bm]
Take away the words that rhyme
[    C             CM7/C#]
It doesn't mean a thi--ee--
[  D7-D7sus-D7]
  ing

[G    G/F#           Em]
And Aubrey was her name
[GM7             C]
We tripped the light and danced
[     Bm            Am]
  together to the moon
[D7             G-G/F#]
But where was June
[Em     Em+M7-Em7          Em6]
No, it ne-------ver came around
[C                  GM7]
If it did it never made a sound
[ Am         Bm]
Maybe I was absent or was
[   C             Bm]
  listening too fast
[ Am              Bm]
Catching all the words but then
[        C              CM7/C#-G]
  the meaning couldn't pass

[B7                  Em]
But God I miss the girl
[        G7]
And I'd go a thousand times
[              C]
  around the world
[            Cm]
Just to be closer to her than
[     (intro)]
  to me

[G    G/F#           Em]
And Aubrey was her name
[GM7      C           Bm]
I never knew her but I loved
[              Am]
  her just the same
[D7          G-G/F#]
I loved her name
[Em          Em+M7-Em7]
Wished that I          could
[         Em6]
  find a way
[C]
And the reasons that would
[  GM7]
  make her stay
[Am                Bm]
I have learned to lead a life
[   C                  Bm]
  apart from all the rest
[   Am               Bm]
If I can't have the one I want
[     C                CM7/C#-G]
  I'll do without the best

[B7                 Em]
But how I miss the girl
[        G7]
And I'd go a million times 
[               C]
  around the world
[             Cm]
Just to say, She had been
[             G]
  mine for a day.
