WHEN COULD WE HAVE MET?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          INTRO:  Dm - G - C - F
                  F#dim - G - Em7 - Am
                  Dm - Bb - F# - A7

                           Dm           G
                  were our parents ever children?
                    C             F
                  I can't imagine that.
                         F#dim           G
                  and it seems even more certain
                        Em7            Am
                  we've always been ourselves:
                        Dm             Bb
                  me, a veteran of the war.
                          F#        A7
                  you, no virgin anymore.


                      Gm               F
                  and now we mourn the death
                     Bb(6)            C
                  of all our separate years
                  Cm              Bb
                  that could have been
                  Eb(6)             F
                  measured with one clock.


                  A7
                  but...


                  Dm                 G
                  when could we have met?
                  C                  F
                  when could we have met?
                  F#dim   G
                  in what season?
                  Em7            Am
                  when did you become
                  Dm                   Bb
                  what I've learned to love?
                  F#    A7
                  when?


                  Dm                 G
                  when could we have met?
                  C                  F
                  when could we have met?
                  F#dim   G
                  in what hour
                         Em7             Am
                  did my eyes learn to divine
                      Dm          Bb
                  the underground springs
                  F#     A7
                  you possess?


                  A7                 E
                  when could we have met?
                  Bb     Bm
                  surely not
                         Dm
                  in the crib,
                         Bb
                  on the playground,
                     C          A7
                  or homecoming day.


                  Dm                 G
                  when could we have met?
                  F#dim   G
                  not one day
                            F     C
                  before we did.


         ENDING:  Dm - G - C - F
                  F#dim - G - G#dim - A7
                  Dm
