C F Em C G7 C
Melinda Melinda oh how I miss Melinda

G7 C
While a walking down a street in Denver
G7 C
I passed by a little dress shop
A sign on the door read Melinda's
And I asked myself if I should stop

C G7 C
For I knew a girl named Melinda
G7 C
When I lived here years ago
And I wondered if by chance it could be
C G7 C G7
The Melinda I used to know

C G7 C G7 C
So I peeked in through the window and there to my surprise
F G7
I saw my darling Melinda and a tear came to my eyes
C G7 C
For she looked lovely as always as I watched her standing there
F C F C G7 C
Her face was like an angel's with a halo of golden hair

F Em Dm G7 C
Melinda Melinda with the golden hair
G7 C G7
Oh how I miss Melinda

G7 C G7 C
Then I slowly remembered how she suffered the shame
F C F G7
Of being left with a baby and me never changing her name
C G7 C
So I ran in and called out Melinda so ashamed I hung down my head
F C F C G7 C
But the young girl said sir I'm sorry but you see my mother is dead

F Em Dm G7 C
Melinda Melinda with the golden hair
G7 C
Oh how I miss Melinda
G7 C
Oh how I miss Melinda
