Intro:
A A C#m C#m Bm Bm Esus4 Esus4 E E

A A
Well she picked me up in a German car
C#m C#m
and she took me out to an Irish bar
Bm Bm
where I drank some beer in a plastic cup
ED
'til I had some trouble standing up
A A
And then she drove downtown to a strobe-lit space
C#m C#m
where all the guys wore chains and the thumping bass
Bm Bm
was so intense I could barely feel my face
E E
and I think I asked her back to my place



F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
But that's all I recall
E E A A
and when I woke up in the hall
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
I was alone and softly groaning
E E Fdim Fdim
and I lost my keys and I lost my phone
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
and I wonder what I did or said
E E A A
that I might soon regret
F#m F#mBm7 Bm7
It was a night I can't remember
E E A A
with the girl I can't forget


Repeat intro:
C#m C#m Bm Bm Esus4 Esus4 E E


A A
Well I was reeling, watching the ceiling spin
C#m C#m
the next evening when my friends walked in
Bm Bm
and when I asked them if they knew where I'd been
E E D D
they didn't speak at first, they only grinned
A A
You see I'm not the type to get in fights
C#m C#m
but that might not have been the case last night
Bm Bm
because they heard that I had a word or two
E E
with a man who asked, "Is she with you?"


F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
And if I took it the wrong way
E E A A
I guess that's not for me to say
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
though it seems I may have slipped up
E E Fdim Fdim
when I offered him some grooming tips
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
But at least that helps explain
E E A A
the cuts and bruises on my head
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
from the night I can't remember
E E A A
with the girl I can't forget


Bridge:
C#m C#m F#m F#m Bm Bm E E C#m C#m

F#m F#m
And it's all coming back now
Bm Bm
Don't know how to react now
E E
Guess I'll let it go

I'm not so sure I want to know


A A
Well I was back at work at 9:15
C#m C#m
when a message popped up on my screen
Bm Bm
It said, "Pick me up at 8:45
E E
and we can give it one more try"


F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
And now that I'm with her
E E A A
the whole thing seems a bit absurd
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
though she never fails to tell the tale
E E Fdim Fdim
of the time she had to post my bail
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
And for giving me a second chance
E E A A
I'm forever in her debt
F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7
since the night I can't remember
E E D D A A D D A A D D A A Bm Bm A A A6 A6
she's the girl I won't ever forget
