Artist : Gil McKinney
Song : How Was I To Know

[Intro] : C G Am F
          C G C  F C

[Verse 1] : 
C                G
Back in New York City
Am                        F
Last time you walked with me
C              G
Peacoats and fedoras
Am                F
Jazz music played for us
C                  G
Cool breeze in the park
Am                 F
Stiff drinks after dark
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know

[Chorus] : 
C       G    Am
How was I to know
              F
That'd be the last time
C    G            Am    F
That I'd see your face
    C                   G
You put your hand on my shoulder
    Am                   F
The last time you'd grow older
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know

[Verse 2] : 
C                G
Back in New York City
Am                        F
Last time you talked with me
   C         G
Of past recollection
  Am             F
A lifetime of connections
   C               G
Of people that you missed
    Am              F
And jokes of bucket lists
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know

[Chorus] : 
C       G    Am
How was I to know
              F
That'd be the last time
C    G            Am    F
That I'd see your face
    C                      G
You put your arm 'round my shoulder
    Am                   F
The last time you'd grow older
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know

[Bridge] : 
        G              Am
And the thought that I feel
      F         G
Is so painfully real
                 Am
Your soul's everywhere
          F              G
Like snow hanging in the air
                       Am
The lessons you left behind
        F            G
They're always on my mind
                  Am
The beating in my heart
      F             G
And a dying work of art

[Chorus] : 
C       G    Am
How was I to know
              F
That'd be the last time
C    G            Am    F
That I'd see your face
    C                      G
Without your arm 'round my shoulder
    Am               F
Ths world is so much colder
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know

[Verse 3] : 
C                G
Back in New York City
Am                        F
This time you're not with me
      C               G
But a love that's undenied
    Am                F
Big bright eyes by my side
  C              G
A new world to explore
   Am           F
My daughter to adore
C       G    C    F C
How was I to know

[Outro] : C G Am F
          C G C  F C
