Eb

Eb                 G#
Mama was calling, but I couldn't answer
Eb                       G#
I had a dog in the car, had a dog in my hands
Eb                      G#           Bb
I was walking with these worn-out shoes
Eb                        G#
I tripped over Charlie and I hit the grass
Eb                            G#
I was coming up running, I was coming up fast
        Eb             G#              Bb
But he beat me, just a-howling at the door
Cm         G#
Oh Sally, don't get down
       Eb                 Bb
'Cause I been looking all over town
      Eb                 G#         Eb  Bb
For a brand new set of wings for you
      Eb                 G#         Eb  Bb
For a brand new set of wings for you

Eb G# Eb G# Eb G# Bb


          Eb                    G#
Well I'm back in the house, bang my head on a wall
          Eb                           G#
Yeah and Charlie's still laughing about watching me fall
    Eb                      G#           Bb
I say "Charlie, now what's the big idea?"
     Eb                 G#
I'm back in my room just packing my bags
          Eb                 G#
And I'm thinking November, about the time we've had
     Eb           G#           Bb
Just walking out by a stone wall

(chorus)

     Eb                      G#
I'm gonna get a ticket, gonna get on a plane
          Eb              G#
Tell that pilot, take me so far away
          Eb                 G#               Bb
So I can call you up, say I miss you like a fool
             Eb                            G#
Yeah but you don't put me down, you don't treat me bad
             Eb                   G#
Say you understand about this problem I have
       Eb           G#             Bb
Well sometimes, I know you still wonder

(chorus)

         Eb                        G#
Yeah got held up in Paris, caught smoking on a train
         Eb                        G#
If you ain't got your papers gonna get you detained
          Eb                   G#             Bb
Don't believe me I've got the photographs to prove it
        Eb                          G#
You should've seen the look on the old man's face
          Eb                   G#
When the police threatened to haul him away
               Eb                   G#           Bb
You know he was scared, but it was also kind of funny

(chorus)

             Eb                          G#
Yeah well I can't sleep at night, can't awake in the day
              Eb                 G#
And we got these guitars, got so much to say
         Eb        G#      Bb
But no time, no energy to say it
                    Eb                          G#
Yeah when you still walk in the park there ain't nobody there
            Eb                        G#
There's a calm in the trees there's a cool in the air
          Eb             G#              Bb
And it's boring, but I found it kind of soothing
           Eb                         G#
Yeah in a couple of months when the leaves turn green
          Eb                     G#
When the seasons change, when the bird sings
       Eb                 G#               Bb
Gonna grab you up, gonna take you here for good
               Eb                    G#
Yes and we'll walk by the river most every single day
           Eb                         G#
And we'll eat our dinner where the tourists play
                    Eb          G#                 Bb
You know the city's old but it never seems to get tired

(chorus)
