(w/rhy fig 1) 
I went to dallas back in 82
The cafe society was numero uno
(w/rhy fig 2)
Surrounded by model, girls and guys in boots
(w/rhy fig 1)
I watched as they conspired taking parking lot dues
(w pre-chs fig 1 [lead] and rhy fig 3 [crd])
Looking back on a cherished memory
A strange conception seems to frontal me
Holly's like ivy She grows on it
 
 
(w/rhy fig 1)
I realize if all the beautiful girls
Were lost like gems, will grow to pearls
(w/rhy fig 2)
Now Holly is behind me,
And I fall from the place
(w/rhy fig 1)
I've got this burning sensation
As she brushed my face
(w pre-chs fig 1 [lead] and rhy fig 3 [crd])
Looking back on a cherished memory
A strange conception seems to frontal me Holly's like ivy She grows on
it 

(guitar solo)

(w pre-chs fig 1 [lead] and rhy fig 3 [crd])
Looking back on a cherished memory
A strange conception seems to frontal me 
(w/rhy fig 4)
Holly's like 
 
 2:08--pick slide
(w/rhy fig 1)
I know I must hurry back there
And look for Holly with her long brown hair
(w/rhy fig 2)
I was bred by some relief(?)
All I want for christmas is her two front teeth
(w pre-chs fig 1 [lead] and rhy fig 3 [crd])
Looking back on my cherished memory
A strange conception seems to frontal me
Holly's like ivy 
She grows on it 
Holly's like ivy
Grows
