Simple, country flavoured song from The Quo. From the album In The Army Now.

         E                 B                        E    E7
I got an invitation from a girl I used to know back home
          A                 C#m       F#    B
It was an invitation asking me to telephone
               E              E7
She said, it's getting lonely here
              A                Am
And I've been gone for close a year
           E                            B                        E
I took the first flight out to meet the girl I used to know back home

C#m, B E
C#m

    B      E                         B                       E    E7
She met me off the flight, a million dollars in her long red gown
       A                          C#m              F#   B
With a man in a black hat just to drive us back to town
        E                  E7
Now the faces all look the same
            A                        Am
And all the places have the same old names
         E                                 B                        A
But in a year you've changed just like the girl I used to know back home
          E                                 B                        E
Yes, in a year you've changed just like the girl I used to know back home

A           B              E
 Maybe it's true that I go on and on and on
A           B                 C#m
 Maybe it's true that I'm the lonely one alone
           A                      B
What can I say to you, what can I say to you?
          E                                 B                        E
Yes, in a year you've changed just like the girl I used to know back home

C#m, B E
C#m, B E
C#m, B E
C#m, B A B


It took another year before I started getting itchy toes
And then I had to leave, but that's the way the story goes
Well I reckon if she'd made me stay
I'd never live to see another day
I took the first flight out and left the girl I used to know back home

Maybe it's true that I go on and on and on
Maybe it's true that I'm the lonely one alone
What can I say to you, what can I say to you?
I took the first flight out and left the girl I used to know back home
     E       C#m           B    E
Back home, I left the girl back home
C#m              B    E 
 I left the girl back home
C#m              B    E
 I left the girl back home
C#m              B    E
 I left the girl back home
C#m              B    E
 I left the girl back home
