Intro: D E F# A | 2x

                 D   G                D
It was a foggy mornin' south of San Jose
        D            A       B
We were sittin' in a crowded coffee shop
     E                G
With nothin' left to say
   D                   E 
My cup grew cold and a teardrop rolled
         A                      G
Down her cheek and I brushed it away
      A                              D
I remember it all just like yesterday


(Chorus) 
      F#     G               D  
And I see it now, I feel it still
G                      A               D
It's a day I can't forget and never will
               G                     F#        F
And I hear her voice on the winds of Abilene
    E       F#      G           A                    D
She used to call me Texas and I called her Norma Jean

Still see her wavin' through the radiator steam
She was stranded by the roadside on her way to bigger things
She threw her bags in back, said she liked my hat
Her name was Marilyn Justine
I fell into her California dream

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
        G                           D
Yeah we took a lotta detours on our winding way out west
G              A          B                         A
Livin' for the moment, forgettin' all the rest
G                                     D     A      B
The life that she had waitin' and the one I left behind
            E             
And now I'm back here tryin' to sort it out
   A
One fence post at a time
        D
In that coffee shop, the road just stopped
                    G
And we faced reality
             A                                   D
The place that she was goin' had no place for me

(Chorus)

Yeah I called her Norma Jean
