8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Ev'ry night I sit here by my window. (window)
Staring at the lonely avenue. (avenue)
Watching lovers holding hands and laughing. (laughing)
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do.
(thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park,
(things) Like a kiss in the dark,
(things) Like a sailboat ride.
What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover's vow,
Things that we don't do now.
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do.
Heartaches are the friends I'm talking to.
Staring at the lonely avenue.
Watch the Wineland Banjo Band perform "Things" (youtube)
