Operator, number please, it's been so many years.
D        A7     D      A7    Bm      A         G
She'll remember my old voice while I fight the tears.
D      B7            Em      A7       D       B7      Em     A7
Hello, hello there.  Is this Martha?  This is ol' Tom Frost.  
D    B7      Em   A7              Bm    A         G
I am calling long distance, don't worry about the cost.
D         B7       Em       A7        D       B7       Em    A7
It's been fourteen years or more now; Martha, please recall,
    D       B7      Em     A           Bm   A        G
And meet me out for coffee where we'll talk about it all.

Chorus:
D                      G         D          G
And those were days of roses, of poetry and prose

And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me.
D              G          D               G
There was no tomorrow, we packed away our sorrows
       Bm               G  A  D     G    D  A7  D  A7  Bm  A  G
And we saved them for a rainy day.


Verse -same chords as before-:
I feel so much old now, you're much older too.
How's the husband, how's the kids? 
You know that I got married too.
Lucky that you found someone who makes you feel secure.
We were all so young and foolish, now we are mature.

And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me.
D              G          D               G
There was no tomorrow, we packed away our sorrows

And we saved them for a rainy day.


Verse -same chords as before-:
I was always so impulsive, guess that I still am.
All that really mattered then was that I was a man.
Guess that our bein' together wasn't meant to be.
Martha, Martha, I love you, can't you see.

And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me.

And we saved them for a rainy day.

I remember quiet evenings trembling close to you.
