B*Lunchtime Friday, leave work early
C#*Rushing through the suburbs to the station to catch the train
E E*Heading up to town to Dave's to get my glad rags on
B*Because lately I've been running down, little things catching up
C#*Excuses stretched thin and it's hard not giving up
E E*Tonight we're going to get it right, we're going to have us a good one
C# BAnd the roll call is missing a name
C# ASince you left things haven't been the same
E B* A*But I don't blame you, there was nothing here to make you stay
C# B C#But I remember the way that you'd light up a room when you walk in,
A EThe way that you'd lead a crowd when you sing
B* A*Jamie, this one is for you.
B* C#* E E*
B* C#*Pre-club beers at Dan's before we hit the road
We're nicely warmed up, pleasantly half-loaded
E E*Ready for a night on fire, we're going to get out the big guns
B*And I run down the numbers, scan through the faces
C#*Run through the plans, scout out the places
E E*I'm electrified, surrounded, but can't shake the feeling of still missing something or someone
C# BAnd the roll call is missing a name
C# ASince you left things haven't been the same
E B* A*But I don't blame you, there was nothing here to make you stay
C# B C#But I remember the way that you'd light up a room when you walk in,
A EThe way that you'd lead a crowd when you sing
B* A* EJamie, this one is for you.
B* A*Jamie, this one is for you.
A* (cont.) G#* E B* I'm wide awake
G#* E* B* A* G#* E B* in the cityscape
G#* E B* A*
G#* E B* G#*You did your time out on the road
E B* A* G#*One day you stayed away for good
E B* G#*You found a home down by the shore
E B* A* G#A place to hang your hat and more
A G#You sent me postcards to tell me of
B A G#Slowing down and finding love
A G#The thrill has gone from the city life
B AI'm not far behind
C# BSo you can strike my name from the roll call,
C# AWhen night falls I'm leaving
E B* A*There is nothing here to make me stay
C# BWhen I get to the coast I will send back a postcard
C# ATo tell all my old friends all about my new start
E B* A* Jamie I will see you soon.
E B* A* Jamie I will see you soon.
E B* A* Jamie I will see you soon.
E B* A* Jamie I will see you soon.
