Lyrics


INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

VERSE 1
Dm
It was a foggy night in 'Frisco
Gm
I was closing' down my fav'rite bar.
Dm
I was drinkin' whiskey for my dinner,
A7
I was gonna bed down in my old car.

Dm
That's when she whispered into my ear:
Gm
"I'd thought I'd find you in this place"
Cm A7
And even after all these long hard years.
A7 Dm
I cannot forget her face.

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

CHORUS
Gm
It was a foggy night in 'Frisco
Dm
smothered in a mist that clouds your mind.
A A7
with a merciful forgiveness that buries
Bflat Dm Gm A7
things you no longer want to find

Dm
She floats in with each foggy night
Gm Gm7
and then she vanishes without a trace
Dm A7
But no matter how hard I try, or drink,
A7 Dm
I cannot forget her face.


VERSE 2
Dm
We danced and talked for hours,
Gm
Though I can't recall a word she said;
Dm
Her perfume sent me spinning,
A7
Her voice echoed through my head.

Dm
It was a dream, it was a nightmare,
Dm
I lost all track of time and space.
Dm A7
When I woke up, I didn't know my name,
A7 Dm
but I cannot forget her face.


CHORUS
Gm
It was a foggy night in 'Frisco
Dm
smothered in a mist that clouds your mind.
A A7
with a merciful forgiveness that buries
Bflat Dm Gm A7
things you no longer want to find

Dm
She floats in with each foggy night
Gm Gm7
then disappears without a trace
Dm A7
No matter how hard I try, or drink,
A7 Dm
I cannot forget her face.



INSTRUMENTAL VERSE


VERSE 3
Dm
She haunted me each foggy night;
Gm
It was terrifying and absurd.
Dm
She offered to grant me any wish
A7
If I could ask it in just three short words.

Dm
My soul was torn by raw desire,
Gm
Yet I knew how it had to be.
Dm A7
I turned and looked her right in the eye,
A7 Dm
and all I said was: "Set me free."


CHORUS
Gm
It was a foggy night in 'Frisco
Dm
smothered in a mist that clouds your mind.
A A7
with a merciful forgiveness that buries
Bflat Dm Gm A7
things you no longer want to find.

Dm
She floats in with each foggy night
Gm Gm7
and then disappears without a trace
Dm A7
But no matter how hard I try, or drink,
A7 Dm
I cannot forget her face.
