Capo 2nd fret
Intro: G

G              D         Em             C             G
Started out so innocent, everything was simple and so plain
G            D           Em            C                G
She was in a doorway and I was walking nowhere down the main
    D                              C                G
She whispered something softly and stepped into the light
D                                  C             G
Can you help me out she said I'm a little lost tonight
G       D         C               G
One day love just hits you with a flash
G              D                 C      G
Lights go off around you like some photograph

G                  D               Em               C             G
Said her bags were stolen all they left her was the camera on her arm
G               D           Em    C                 G
Told me she was new in town, only two weeks off the farm
    D                      C           G
Oh, why did I believe her, heaven only knows
D                          C          G
One look in my eyes and my resolution goes
G       D         C               G
One day love just hits you with a flash
G                  D               C      G
Leaves you staring blindly like some photograph

Em                    D                     C                         G
Pictures of two fools laughing at the world smiling as only good luck does
Em                       D
Truth is you're not even looking at me girl
Am                         C                      Am            C            D
All the time I was falling, you kept on stalling, sizing up how big a fool I was

Pictures of two fools laughing at the world smiling as only good luck does
Em                       D
Truth is you're not even looking at me girl
    Am                            C                      Am            C            D
And all the time I was falling and you kept on stalling, sizing up how big a fool I was

G               D              Em               C               G
Woke up in the morning I don't think I that had been asleep too long
    G                  D             Em              C                      G
The room was dark and empty, I could see that all my clothes and money were gone
     D                      C            G
I've run out of excuses and people I can blame
D                           C          G
If she ever asked me to I'd do it all again
G       D         C               G
One day love just hits you with a flash
G                  D               C      G
Leaves you staring blindly like some photograph
