From the recording Out of Print
Quiet Girl (in G on Banjo tuned open G)
G C G
The club is hoping but she’s sitting down at a table under a light.
G C G
A heavy book sits in her lap. She’s not showing much skin tonight.
She’s not circling the tables with a tease and a trumpet laugh.
D C D
She’s listening to the music. And when they stop she claps.
Quiet Girl, you wonder if she’s lonely.
Quiet Girl, she’s not your one and only.
Quiet Girl, is doing just fine.
G D G
She doesn’t have to flash her lights to shine.
She doesn’t drive with the mirror turned so she can check her face.
She doesn’t know she’s the loveliest one when she walks in a crowded place.
She’ll tell you what the Senate botched up yesterday.
But if you ask about a TV show, she won’t have much to say.
