We Let The Stars Go

Intro:  Gmaj7   Bm7    Am7   (Am7/G)

Cmaj7          Bm7Am7
There was a girl     I used to know -  She'd tease me about my name
Gmaj7       Bm             Am7/G
Fan the embers long enough, I sometimes catch her flame
Cmaj7           Bm7                 Am7
The soothing voice of distance tells me, "That was just a fling"
Gmaj7    Bm          Am7/G
Other music fills my ears, but I still hear her sing. . . .  She sings :

Chorus:
Gmaj7       Bm7        Am7    Am7/G
Paddy Joe, say Paddy Joe, don't you remember me ?
Cmaj7 Bm    Am    Am7  C      Cmaj7
How long ago one gorgeous night we let      the     stars go
Gmaj7          Bm7        Am7    Am7/G
Paddy Joe, say Paddy Joe, don't you remember me ?
Cmaj7 Bm   Am    Am7   C      Cmaj7     Gmaj7    Bm7   Am7
How long ago one gorgeous night we let   the   stars  go        free

(same as above)
There was a boy I used to be - I guess that he was cold
If she came to buy him now, how cheaply he'd be sold
But the light is gone and it is dark: what used to be the sky
Is suddenly embarrassing to the naked eye. . . . You see :

Chorus:
Gmaj7       Bm7       Am7    Am7/G
Paddy Joe, see Paddy Joe can't face this memory
Cmaj7 Bm    Am    Am7  C     Cmaj7   
How long ago one gorgeous night we let      the     stars go         
Gmaj7          Bm7        Am7    Am7/G
Paddy Joe, see Paddy Joe can't face this memory
Cmaj7 Bm    Am    Am7  C     Cmaj7     Gmaj7    Bm7   Am7
How long ago one gorgeous night we let    the  stars go        free
