I Never Got To Know Her
(written by Shel Silverstein)

Intro:
D E A* F#m E

D            E             A     A7
Never got to know her very well
D              E              A      A7
All we did was spend a little time
D                    E                 A              F#m
You're waiting for a story but there's really none to tell
E                                 A
She's just a passing shadow on my mind

E                         D                   Bm
And I remember her on the streets of New York City
E                          D                 E
As I walked along, looking for some place to go
Bm                                D                  Bm
As she passed I said "Hey there's snowflakes on your lashes"
E                                     A      A7
And she laughed and said, "That isn't snow"

                   D               E             A              F#m
She said, "they're feathers from a pillow God is shaking in the sky"
Bm                     E               A                 A7
And she opened smiling lips to catch a snowflake blowing by
D                    E                A               F#m
And we both began to laugh and then I looked into her eyes
E                    E7
It was warmer then.


But I never got to know her very well
All we did was spend a little time
If you're waiting for a story, there's really none to tell
She's just a passing shadow on my mind

But I remember her as we woke up warm together
In her flowered room, and she said, "I'll help you pack"
She sewed my shirt, I said, "I'll stay forever"
But she laughed and put some cookies in my sack

And she said "Leave a trail of cookie crumbs as you walk through the snow
And someday I'll follow after; find you where you go"
And I left her in her doorway.  Ah, why I'll never know
But I was younger then

I never got to know her very well
All we did was spend a little time
You're waiting for a story but there's really none to tell
She's just a passing shadow on my mind

E                          A
Never got to know her very well.
