D
I saw the long row of bluebells

I saw the foxglove and the nightshade
G
I saw the cool garden and I thought awhile about how
            D
how I'd been waiting for you since the second grade.
A7
the flowers made the air boil.
G
the boiling air made me think of you a while.
D                      G
I did not come here to suffer.
D                      A
I did not come here to suffer.


I heard the ducks all quacking.
I saw the sunshine on the lake.
I saw you standing near the water
and wondered how long I'd be paying for one dumb mistake.
the sight of you was really something else.
but I don't know what that something else was.
I did not come here to suffer.
I did not come here to suffer.
