/ = slide up

*Standard Tuning*

These are all the chords you will need. In brackets are alternative positions 
which in some cases I think sound better.

B                    Emaj9
So I'm the first one in again
         C#m9                         B
with the quiet and the window growing snow.
B                       Emaj9
When I hear the furnace rouse itself
         C#m9                         B
From its slumber, somehow suddenly I know

      Abaug5           Bb5             B2          Emaj9(2) E6  E  *walk down
As my eye stops on one curled up in my lesson plan
         Bbaug5           B
That I'm just your little ampersand


B                                Emaj9
When your voice springs from the intercom
      C#m9                             B
with announcements and reminders and a prayer
B                  Emaj9 
I remember how you made me feel
      C#m9                           B
I was funny, I was thoughtful, I was rare

             Abaug5            Bb5
But like the jokes about my figure
           B2               Emaj9(2)  E6  E
kids think I don't understand
           Bbaug5            B
I know I'm just your little ampersand.

                
B               Emaj9
After Christmas holidays
    C#m9                           B 
you never asked to drive me home again
B                Emaj9
Sometimes in the staff room I'd
C#m9                                  B 
catch your eye with "why'd it have to end"

      Abaug5            Bb5           B2           Emaj9(2)  E6  E
But I know from how you worry at your wedding band
         Bbaug5           B
That I'm just your little ampersand

I was just your little ampersand.
