And then one day things weren't quite so fine
I fell in love with Lily
I asked my dad where Lily I could find
He said, "Son, now don't be silly.
She's been dead since 1929."
Oh, how I cried that night
If only I'd been born in Lily's time
                     G
It would have been alright

Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night

|A            C#m/Ab    |F#m    E    |D  C#m  |B  E   |
   For me and Lily are together in my dreams

  And I ask you, hey, mister, have you ever seen

 Pictures of Lily?
