    Em Em/F# Em
    Well I'll be damned
    C
    Here comes your ghost again
    G
    But that's not unusual
    D
    It's just that the moon is full
    Em Em/F# Em
    And you happened to call

    Em Em/F# Em
    And here I sit
    C
    Hand on the telephone
    G
    Hearing a voice I'd known
    D
    A couple of light years ago
    Em Em Em/F# Em 2x
    Heading straight for a fall

    Em Em Em/F# Em
    As I remember your eyes
    C
    Were bluer than robin's eggs
    G
    My poetry was lousy you said
    D
    Where are you calling from?
    Em Em Em/F# Em 2x
    A booth in the Midwest

    Em Em Em/F# Em
    Ten years ago
    C
    I bought you some cufflinks
    G
    You brought me something
    D
    We both know what memories can bring
    Em Em Em/F# Em 2x
    They bring diamonds and rust

    Well you burst on the scene
    Already a legend
    The unwashed phenomenon
    The original vagabond
    You strayed into my arms
    And there you stayed
    Temporarily lost at sea
    The Madonna was yours for free
    Yes the girl on the half-shell
    Would keep you unharmed

    Bm
    Now I see you standing

    With brown leaves falling around
    Am
    And snow in your hair
    Bm
    Now you're smiling out the window

    Of that crummy hotel
    Am
    Over Washington Square
    C
    Our breath comes out white clouds
    G
    Mingles and hangs in the air
    Fmaj7
    Speaking strictly for me
    G B7
    We both could have died then and there

    Now you're telling me
    You're not nostalgic
    Then give me another word for it
    You who are so good with words
    And at keeping things vague
    Because I need some of that vagueness now
    It's all come back too clearly
    Yes I loved you dearly
    And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
    I've already paid
