The Griswolds
[Intro]
Am7 F9 C C

Am           F                                  C      C
Sixteen years - without even a place to call my own,
         Am          F                                 C      C
But I'll dry my tears - looking for a place to rest my bones.
F             Am                                        G      G
All these years - but never changed the one that I have known.
      Dm           F                                     C      C
And despite my fears - I'm sure that I can make it on my own.

[Chorus]
F                         Am -
Quality drugs and limousines
    G                     Am -
Oh, mama, this is killing me.
    F                      Am  G     Am
I'm half the man I used to be- oh (ooooh)
G  F                      Am -
To give to lust and gambling
    G                 Am -
Oh, mama, I need rescuing.
     F                         Am  G     Am
What sixteen years has done to me- oh (ooooh)

[Instrumental]
F Am7 G
[Verse 2]
F            Am                                  G      G
Sixteen years - burning every bridge that I have known.
   F           Am                                    C    C    C
Without you here - the world has gotten colder on my own.

[Chorus]
F                         Am -
Quality drugs and limousines
    G                     Am -
Oh, mama, this is killing me.
    F                      Am  G     Am
I'm half the man I used to be- oh (ooooh)
G  F                      Am -
To give to lust and gambling
    G                 Am -
Oh, mama, I need rescuing.
     F                         Am  G     Am
What sixteen years has done to me- oh (ooooh)

[Bridge]
C Am
        C
There's nothing like it - I'm going away.
        C                F
There's nothing like the feeling -
   Am                                  
Of being alone now on a New York street,
      Am7
Gives everything some meaning.
        F
There's nothing like being torn apart -
       G
From a love you've known right from the start.
        Em                F
There's nothing like this feeling.
        C
There's nothing like it - I'm going away.
        C                F
There's nothing like the feeling -
   Am                                  
Of being alone now on a New York street,
      Am7
Gives everything some meaning.
        F
There's nothing like being torn apart -
       G
From a love you've known right from the start.
        Em                C
There's nothing like this feeling.

[Chorus]
F                         
Quality drugs and limousines
    G                     
Oh, mama, this is killing me.
    F                          G
I'm half the man I used to be- oh (ooooh)
   F                      Am -
To give to lust and gambling
    G                 Am -
Oh, mama, I need rescuing.
G    F                         Am- G     Am
What sixteen years has done to me- oh (ooooh)
G         F                         Am  G      Am
It's what sixteen years has done to me- oh (ooooh)
G         F                         Am  G      Am - G - F
It's what sixteen years has done to me- oh (ooooh)
