[Verse]
N.C. DIt was the first time we really took a chance
DTo view the world behind our fathers' backs
D AWe left our parents playing rummy by the cottage porch light
C Em G DAnd went walkin' down to Helen's on that sweet summer night
C Em AAnd we flipped a coin to see
C Em AWho would have to knock when she
DOpened up her door,
C Em Aand asked us in...
[chorus]
D N.C. Helen of Troy, Pennsylvania
[Hook 2] D D D D [Verse 2]
DShe was twice the age of me and Tony
DBrown eyed, recently divorced, and lonely
D AAnd we lied about our high school football team
C Em G DNumber one in the state because of Tony and me
C Em AAnd she sensed our awkwardness
C Em AAnd unzipped her calico dress
DAnd called us over to kiss her
C Em AOne at a time (one at a time boys, can you hear me)
[chorus]
D N.C. Helen of Troy, Pennsylvania
[Hook 2] D D D D [Verse 3]
DWell we rocked to the drone of large mosquitoes
DRhythm of moths against drumhead screen
DSyncopation of Frigidaire motor
C AWith her bobtail cat looking at us, real mean
[chorus]
D N.C. Helen of Troy, Pennsylvania
[Hook 2] D D D D [Hook 2] D D D D [Solo] [Bridge]
DShe went to the kitchen, to get us something to drink
DAnd me and Tony washed ourselves in the bathroom sink
DDoin' the chicken-neck, the high-five, and the monkey noise
[Outro]
C Em A DGlad to be happy, healthy, heterosexual boys
C Em AAnd we drank her herbal tea (red zinger I do believe)
N.C.And good golly miss molly-ed all the way home
[chorus]
D N.C. Helen of Troy, Pennsylvania
[Hook 2] D D D D D D D D [Hook 1] D D Em C Em G Em D D Em C Em G Em D D Em C Em G Em D D Em C Em G Em
