    Living Next Door To Alice:Smokie.
#5 in UK and #2 in USA in 1976.

#1. (Capo 7th fret for original.)
D
Sally called when she got the word,
G A A7 D A
And she said: "I suppose you've heard - About Alice".
A D
Well, I rushed to the window, and I looked outside,
G A
and I could hardly believe my eyes - as a big limousine
D A
rolled up into Alice's drive.

CHORUS:
D
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's

gonna go.
G
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't want

to know.
A
Cause for twenty-four years I've been living next door
D A7
to Alice.
D
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
G
to tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
A G D A7
now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

#2.
D
We grew up together, two kids in the park.
G
We carved our initials, deep in the bark.
A D A7
Me...and Alice.
D
Now she walks through the door, with her head held high,
G A
just for a moment, I caught her eye, as the big limousine
D A7
pulled slowly out of Alice's drive.

CHORUS:
D
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's

gonna go.
G
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't want

to know.
A
Cause for twenty-four years I've been living next door
D A7
to Alice.
D
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
G
to tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
A G D A7
now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

#3.
D
Then Sally called back and asked how I felt,
G A A7 D A7
And she said: "I know how to help..you..get over Alice".
D
She said: "Now Alice is gone, but I'm still here,
G
you know I've been waiting for twenty-four years..."
A7 D
And the big limousine dissapeared...

CHORUS:
D
Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's

gonna go.
G
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't want

to know.
A
Cause for twenty-four years I've been living next door
D A7
to Alice.
D
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
G
to tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
A G A D
But I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...

OUTRO:
A G A D
No, I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...


A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
