       B                               G#m
Well I see ya holdin' hands with your lover
                                  E         F#                B
And you're makin' plans with each other, it fits real good on you
            B                                     G#m
Well don't worry, I didn't come to make things strange
                                      E             F#               B
'Cause there's a reason that things change, there's nothin' we can do

              E              B           E                  B
And it's been five long years since I've seen your lovely eyes
E                  B                      A                F#
 Your girls have grown; she sees right through my thin disguise
E                          B                     G#m
 You know I still love you, you knew I'd never change
              E                      F#
And it's been five long years and I love you just the same

         B                                           G#m
When you see me, do you remember the times when we travelled
                              E              F#                 B
South of the borderline when love was young, time was on our side
   B                             G#m
We met in the Rio Grande and we listened to all the Mexican bands
         E             F#                     B
Singin' songs of love, when our hearts were young, yeah

              E              B           E                  B
And it's been five long years since I've seen your lovely eyes
E                  B                      A                F#
 Your girls have grown; she sees right through my thin disguise
E                          B                     G#m
 You know I still love you, you knew I'd never change
              E                      F#
And it's been five long years and I love you just the same
B        E
 Oh, yeah
      B         E                F#
Five long years, five long years
