[C]Well, sometimes I go out by myself and I look across the  
[Dm]water 

And I  
[C]think of all the things, what you're doing 

And in my head I paint a 
[Dm]picture 

(Chorus) 

[F]'Cause since I've come on home well, my  
[Em]body's been a mess 

[F]And I've missed your ginger hair and the  
[Em]way you like to dress 

[F]Won't you come on over,  
[C]stop makin' a fool out of  
[G]me 

Why don't you come on over Valerie 
[C]? Valerie 
[Dm], Valerie 
[C], Valerie 
[Dm] 

[C]Did you have to go to jail, put your house on up for sale, 

Did you get a good  
[Dm]lawyer? Hope you  
[C]didn't catch a tan, 

hope you find the right man who'll fix it  
[Dm]for you 

[C]Are you shopping anywhere, changed the color of your hair 

Are you  
[Dm]busy? And did you  
[C]have to pay that fine, 

You was dodging all the time, are you still  
[Dm]Dizzy? 

(Chorus) 

[F]since I've come on home well, my  
[Em]body's been a mess 

[F]And I've missed your ginger hair and the  
[Em]way you like to dress 

[F]Won't you come on over,  
[C]stop makin' a fool out of  
[G]me 

Why don't you come on over Valerie 
[C]? Valerie 
[Dm], Valerie 
[C], Valerie 
[Dm] 

(No chords) 

Well, sometimes I go out by myself and I look across the water 

And I  
[C]think of all the things, what you're doing 

And in my head I paint a  
[Dm]picture 

(Rpt Chorus and end on 'Valerie  
[Dm]' for the big finish)
