       G                         Em
One soft infested summer me and Terry became friends
            G                           Em
Trying in vain to breathe the fire we was born in
          G                            Em
Catching rides to the outskirts tying faith between our teeth
                  D                                C              D
Sleeping in that old abandoned beach house getting wasted in the heat
    G          C               G          C
And hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
       G                 Am7          G    Em
With a love so hard and filled with defeat  
                 C                          |           2x             |
Running for our lives at night on them      G             Em

     G                          Em
Slow dancing in the dark on the beach at Stockton's Wing
 G                                          Em
Where desperate lovers park we sat with the last of the Duke Street Kings
  D                  C
Huddled in our cars waiting for the bells that ring
        Am                               C                  D
In the deep heart of the night we could loose from everything
       G         C                G          C
to go running on the backstreets, running on the backstreets
          G        C         Am   G Em
Terry you swore we'd live forever
C                               |           2x             |
Taking it on them backstreets   G             Em
A                       F#m     
Endless juke joints and Valentino drag 
      A                                    F#m
Where dancers scr*ped the tears up off the streets dressed down in rags 
   A                                F#m
Running into the darkness some hurt bad some really dying
   E                                            D
At night sometimes it seemed you could hear the whole damn city crying
Blame it on the lies that killed us blame it on the truth that ran us down 
        A                                 D
You can blame it all on me Terry it don't matter to me now
When the breakdown hit at midnight there was nothing left to say
      A               E                       F#m  | B | D G D7 G |
But I hated him and I hated you when you went away

C           D7

 G                                      Em
Laying here in the dark you're like an angel on my chest
      G                             Em
Just another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness
  D                            C
Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see
          Am                                C                D
Trying to learn how to walk like heroes we thought we had to be
     Em                                Bm
And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest
 C                                  D7sus
Stranded in the park and forced to confess
   G          C               G          C
To hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
           G        C        G Em      C                     G  | C | G |
Where we swore forever friends on the backstreets until the end
Hiding on the

It’s allright we’ll go hiding on the backstreets tonight
Hiding on the backstreets
