[Verse]

***Same picking pattern as intro***


G                       Asus2
Where's that angel with dirty knees
           C                            G
who wasn't hard to please when we first met?
G                      Asus2
She don't act like she needs me now
              C               G
and she don't even seem to be upset.
G               Asus2
Maybe I cover too much ground,
               C                         G
I've been from town to town since I grew up.
G                       Asus2
Could my dreams take up too much space?
           C                       G
I'll never find a place that's big enough.


[Chorus]

D    Em7       G9        D
 The chairs go up on the bar now,
        Em7   G9        D
and the table lights go black,
     Em7   G9       D
So I order one last double
                         Cadd9
and start calling people back.


[Verse]

G                           Asus2
Marc sounds good, he's been working hard.
           C                      G
Couldn't punch a card to save his life.
G                      Asus2
Says he's glad that he quit the road,
             C                          G
he says he's getting old, he missed his wife.
G                Asus2
Little Em's been asleep since nine,
               C                      G
I'm sure she's doing fine, she always is.
G                    Asus2
Dad won't answer his phone at night,
      C                                  G
but I guess that's alright, the place is his.


[Chorus]

D    Em7        G9        D
 The chairs are up on the bar now
    Em7     G9        D
and they're asking me to leave,
     Em7      G9     D
So I give the girl a bill
                          Cadd9
and start rolling down my sleeves.


[Verse]

G                Asus2
In my pocket directions back
           C                          G
across the railroad tracks to where I crash.
G                   Asus2
Maybe I should wave down a car,
           C                     G
I won't be going far, and I have cash.
G                      Asus2
Think I blocked just a park away,
            C                         G
but I can't really say, it's been all night.
G                    Asus2
How I wish you would call me here,
             C                      Asus2
but you just disappeared, it wasn't right.


[Chorus]

D        Em7          G9     D
 And the streetlights help a little,
            Em7    G9   D
but they're barely half alive
  Em7        G9        D
I don't feel much like walking
                         Cadd9
and I sure as hell can't drive.


[Verse]

G                   Asus2
Close your eyes and remember this.
            C                       G
It won't be back again, it's almost gone.
G                     Asus2
Even times that don't seem like much
             C                       G
will be your only crutch when you're alone.
G                    Asus2
Time moves slow when you're seventeen
            C                 G
and then it picks up steam at twenty-one.
G                  Asus2
Pretty soon you'll remember when
          C                       G
you could remember when you loved someone.
