* Special thanks to Deacon Jim (JPalavin@exchange.ureg.ohio-state.edu) for not only pointing out to me that my original chart on this song lacked the intro verse, but also for providing the basis on which this one is built.
**Lenny Welch actually sings this line as "I guess I'll never be the same."
