about

Wrote this latin flavored tune many years ago,and only brought it to the band about a year ago. Suzy does a wonderful job singing it, and Vic's conga and clave rhythm are terrific. Kind of reminds of a song the Drifters might have done.

lyrics

Where's the Girl
by John Beccia

(E-D#-D-D#, E-D#-D-, E-D#-D-E7-A)

A E7
Her picture, that's inside your mind you will keep
E7 A
To see her is simply to dream in your sleep
D A
You're hoping to find
D dm7
The girl that you see in your mind

CHORUS
A - E7
Where's the girl?
A - E7
Where's the girl?
A - E7
Where's the girl?
A
Where's the girl?


A E7
You pray for your dream to come true, for the day when she's here
E7 A
To touch her, and feel her so close as you hold her so near
D A
You wait anxiously
D dm7
For the girl that you hope she will be

REPEAT CHORUS

(E-D#-D-D#, E-D#-D-, E-D#-D-E7-A)
Instrumental--(A-E7, E7-A, D-A, D-dm7, A-E7-A-E7-A-E7-A)

A E7
You know that the day will arrive when you know that it's her
E7 A
There's something so deep down inside you that makes you quite sure
D A
Night visions are strong
D dm7
But when morning breaks, they are gone

REPEAT CHORUS

(E-D#-D-D#, E-D#-D-, E-D#-D-E7-A)
