Intro:  E  A7   D7   /

E            A7             D7

Clair,  the moment I met you I swear,

   H7                   E

I felt as if something somewhere

      A7                  F#         D7         E

Had happened to me,  wich I couldn?t see. And then

     A7                 D7

The moment I met you again,

    H7                             E

I knew in my heart that we were friends

    A7               F#          D7      G

It had to be so, it couldn?t be no; But try

    E7                    A7

as hard as I might do I don?t know why,

D7                          Gmaj7

- You get to me in a way I can?t describe.

Cmaj7                          A7I

Words mean so little when you look up and smile

              G6

I don?t care what people say.

                A7II                  A7      D7

To me, you?re more than a child. Oh Clair, Clair.

E        A7                D7

Clair if ever a moment so rare

     H7                   E

was captured for all to compare

         A7            F#           D7      G

That moment is you, in all that you do. But why

    E7                         A7

In spite of our age diff?rence do I cry

D7                             Gmaj7

- each time I leave you I feel I could die,

Cmaj7                          A7I

Nothing means more to me than hearing you say:

               G6

"I?m going to marry you, will

           A7II

you marry me, Uncle Ray?"

    A7          D7

Oh Clair,     Clair.

--------------------------------------

E              A7                           D7

Clair,  I?ve told you before, don?t you dare

     Gmaj7     E              A7             D7

Get back into bed, can?t you see that it?s late,

      Gmaj7            E

No you can?t have a drink.

      A7               D7        G

Oh alright then but wait just a bit

      E7                 A7

While I in an effort to baby sit

D7                               Gmaj7

capture my breath when there is left of it.

Cmaj7                        A7I

You can be murder at this hour of the day

           G6

But in the morning, this sorrow will seem a

A7II               A7      D7

lifetime away. Oh Clair, Clair

Cmaj7   G  A7  D7     Gmaj7

                         Oh Clair
