C                 F
Twenty miles left to the shore
Am                    F
Hello my old country, hello
C                           G
Stars are just beginning to appear
And I have never in my life before been here

            C                   F
And it's my heart, not me, who cannot ply
     Am              F       
That base conclusion you may write
C			      		        G    
Watching me sit here bolt upright and cry
For no good reason at the Eastern sky

And the tilt of this strange nation
And the will to remain for the duration
           Am               Bb
Waving the flag, feeling it drag

Like a bump on a bump on a log, baby
Like I'm in a fist fight with the fog, baby
Step-ball-change and a pirouette
And .. and I regret, I regret

How I said to you, honey, just open your heart
     F							   C
When I've got trouble even opening a honey jar
And that right there is where we are

    C                F
And I been 'fessing double fast
Am                   F
Addressing questions nobody asks
C                                    G
I'll get this joy off of my chest at last
And I will love you 'til the noise has long since passed

       C              F
And I did not mean to shout, just drive
     Am               F
Just get us out, get home alive
   C                                             G
A road too long to mention holds us up from the sea
Laid down by the good intentions paving company

All the weight of the thing we've been playing at, darlin'
I can see that you're wearing your staying hat, darlin'
For the time being all is well

This is blindness beyond all conceiving
Well, behind us the road is leaving, yeah, leaving
And falling back
Like a rope gone slack

And the sauce strayed away but the ladle will stay
      F							      C
But I fell for you, honey, as easy as falling asleep
And that right there is the course I keep...

    C            D
And no amount of talking
             F         C
Is going to soften the fall
         Bb                F
But, like after the rain, step out
       G           Am
Of the overhang, that's all

   C            D
It had a nice a ring to it
              F          C
When the old opera house rang
          Bb            F
So with a song I'm all ran
                   G           Am
"Signed, sealed, delivered" I sang

    C          D
And there is hesitation
         F      C
And it always remains
           Bb   C
Concerning you, me,
          G          Am
And the rest of the gang

    C            D
And in a quiet hour
          F        C
I feel I see everything
           Bb             F
And am in love with the hook
            G          Am
Upon which everyone hangs

        C                D            
And I know you meant to show the extent
             F          C
To which you gave a god dang
              Bb                         F
It rings real hot and real cold but I'm sold
    G             Am
I am home on that range

           Bb     F    
And I do hate to fold
                  G           Am
Right here at the top of my game
						Bb              F
When I've been trying with my whole heart and soul
              G                 Am
To stay right here in the right lane

                         Bb       F
But it can make you feel over and old
Lord, you know it's a shame
       Am                        Bb        F                   
When I only want for you to pull over and hold me
              G              Am
'Til I can't remember my own name
