     G           Am         D
Well I am your secret, babe
G         Am       D
Watch me unfold
G                 Am          D
Dancing in these streets so late
C            G
And nobody knows
C         G      D
Nobody knows us

     G             Am          D
The first time I looked at you
G               Am     D
You looked at me
G                 Am         D
Swimming in this water so cool
C                    G
Just like a river queen
C                    G  D
Just like a river queen

    Am         D         G         C
And I don't remember falling asleep
Am                D         G
Must have been holding on tight
Am               D           G         C
And all I can think of and all I can dream
    Am            D           G
Is dancing with you at red lights

Am D

G Am D

G            Am          D
The sunshine state is closed
G            Am            D
Look at the water on the road
G             Am           D
And I'm gonna get in my boat
C                  G
And to you I will float
C                  G     D
And to you I will float

   G             D            A
I looked out my window this morning
   G             D            A
And I saw the strangest thing
   G         D            A
Everyone was walking on water, and dancing in the rain

G D A

   G             D        A
Oh and darling I got so jealous
       G              D          A
Just wishing you were here with me
   G             D            A
And I saw the prettiest people, they were kissing in the street
      G         D            A
They didn't care who was watching, in the middle of the street
      G         D            A
They didn't care who was watching

               G           D            A
But I can see blue in the sky when it's raining
               G           D            A
And I can see blue in the sky when it's raining
               G           D            A
And I can see blue in the sky when it's raining
           G           D          A
Raining on me, and I'm waiting on you

G D A (x2)

       G           D            A
Just sitting here watching the weather
     G             D            A
And I can feel the air's getting colder
               G                 D            A
They say that sometimes the sunshine at the party, well she's the first one to go
 G              D            A
She doesn't give any warning,  she just gets up and goes
G           D            A
She doesn't give any warning

(chorus)

    G             D            A
Oh what would you do if I showed up
       G           D            A
On your doorstep just ready to go?
           G          D                A
Would you send me away, would you come out and play?
            G              D            A
It's just a little bit of rain and I'm leaving today
            G              D            A
It's just a little bit of rain and I'm leaving today

Well you stay with me, in the balcony,

And we'll sink in our seas as the people all leave

And we can hide out as the curtain comes down

And then fall asleep to the sleeping sound
Em        G     A           D

Darling green eyes are better than blue

D            A                 D
She says, "This isn't easy, you know
Bm           A               D
Loving the hands that you ain't supposed to hold

You will wish that you left her the way that you'd found her

You were smiling at me as you slipped out of sight

When I woke from my dream I was screaming for life

'Cause I saw you in the water last night

Darling I been down and out ever since you left town
Am                             F            G
Well I ain't been the same, no matter how I try
C                                     G
Sometimes we don't get to choose, the ones who wear the walking shoes
Am                                       F               G
I'm just a poor boy with the blues, no that ain't nothing new


Chorus:
C                                G
I'm gonna fill this whiskey cup, I'm gonna pick me some banjo up
Am                                     F             G
I'm gonna play with the Tragedies, singing good time harmonies

B. Wright don't you let me down, play that one called Sad Clown,
Am                                    F                 G
You know that one's about me, I been thinking about leaving town


Interlude:
C G Am F G

C                                 G
Well sunshine she came out today, it don't matter anyways
Am                                        F             G
'Cause I still see the water, and it's dripping down my door
C                                  G
I used to hear the children play, I used to hear the birds sing
Am                                     F            G
One day they just stopped, and I don't hear them anymore

Repeat Chorus!

C G Am F G

C                                           G
Oh and I got caught in this whistling wind, doing my best to regret these sins
Am                                 F               G
Lord would you forgive me if you knew I'm gonna do it again?
C                                             G
And it's not that I'm not sorry, Lord, no it's just that I'm not strong
Am                                      F            G
'Cause when that woman looks at me I can't remember right from wrong

D            A      G          A
Baby's been tired, got no rest
D             A            G    A
She boards a plane with a smile
D               A               G         A
I saw her last night with her head on my chest

Singing it'll be good if you wait for a while
Bm    D    G        A
Sweet angel, fly away till
D          A         G        A
This dirty city is clean on sight
Bm           D           G            A
And call me sweet dear, when you get there,
D             A        G            D
And rest your head on shy town tonight


D         A         G              A
Well ...times, it's getting you down
D                A             G           A
I can make you smile, it's the one worst clown
D                     A           G           A
And I can sing you a song, I can send you along

Another will be waiting when you touch down

D             A       G                  A
Look at the river that runs through the city
D             A            G                 A
Look at the buildings that run through the sky
D          A     G             A
Rest your head down on your pillow
D              A           G       D D/C#
And I will be waving as you pass by

(chorus)

And I haven't been here since I don't know when

So let's pack our bags, get out of this town

Head up the coast where the wind knocks you down
