    Candy was 16
    I was 23
    Home from the army
    On Christmas leave
    Crosby, Stills & Nash
    In our heads
    "Guinevere" the song
    As we lay in bed

    Candy
    We were so close
    We were in love
    So long ago
    Candy
    Do you reminisce?
    Do you look back
    And think of us?

    There was a dark cloud
    Hanging over me
    It was Vietnam
    I didn't feel free
    When the orders came
    I got lucky
    Germany is where
    The army sent me

    Candy
    We were so close
    We were in love
    So long ago
    Candy
    Do you reminisce?
    Do you look back
    And you think of us?

    Bridge:
    Crosby, Stills & Nash singing
    "As she turns her gaze
    Down the slope to the harbor
    Where I lay anchored for a day"

    Solo

    It's an old story
    It's sad but so true
    It was Candy's friend
    Sent me the news
    Candy found someone
    And she was his
    Sometimes even now
    I wonder where she is

    Candy
    We were so close
    We were in love
    So long ago
    Candy
    Do you reminisce?
    Do you look back
    And think of us?

    Spoken:
    Candy turned her gaze one last time
    As I boarded the plane for Europe
    I knew it was over but comforted myself
    That she'd be waiting when I returned

    Of course life is not always that way
    Candy had moved on when I got home
    I feel her beside me 44 years later
    And think love never completely dies

    Jimbo, lately you've been sounding like the loneliest man in the world, not to mention something akin to a stalker/voyeur/molester/pervert. You need to take a break from lyric writing and do something constructive, like pawning the guitar for food.
