G                                                           D7
When I was young and I went to school they taught me how to write
                                                        G
To take the chalk and make a mark and hope it turns out right
                                        G7             C
Well that's the way it is with love and what you did to me
                    G               D7          G
I wrote it so you'd know that I was yours eternally

                                                              D7
But my tears have washed I love you from the blackboard of my heart
                                                  G
It's too late to clean the slate and make another start
                                 G7                 C
I'm satisfied the way things are although we're far apart
                       G                 D7               G
My tears have washed I love you from the blackboard of my heart

                                                         D7
If you'd been true the way you should and not have gone astray
                                                            G
Those tears would not have fallen down and washed the words away
                                          G7                C
No need to talk cause if the chalk should write those words again
               G                D7                     G
It will be for someone else not things that might have been
