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
D                 A          G               D D/C#
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
D                A            G           D  D/C#
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
