Natalie - David Crosby

First time I saw her she was still in school
Chewin' on a pencil playin' pool
Stayin' up all night
And full of dreams

I've known her family ever since we were small
Gettin' in trouble drivin' our folks up the wall
Wastin' time
Yeah, but we had fun

She was gonna ride her bike to China
Sail away on a bottle top
And as the years passed by
One night I held her close to me

That was the first time I
Said I love you to Natalie

Carousel was crowded so we talked for a while
Natalie said "Baby, you know I miss your smile
Whenever you go
Away from me"

You know that time starts tickin' when a love starts to fade
I knew something was wrong but still I thought we had it made

The first time I
Said I love you to Natalie

That was the first time I
Said I love you to Natalie

Now I look at her pictures and I talk to these walls
Call out her name but she don't hear me at all

[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]

And she got wild and restless
Tried everything she could take
One night I tried to stop her
But I was too late

That was the last time I
Said I love you to Natalie

And that was the last time I
Said I love you to Natalie

[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]

That was the last time I
Said I love you, mmm ...

That was the last time I
Said I love you, mmm ...

That was the last time I
Said I love you to Natalie
