D Em G BmIt s chilly wind that blows, Church Street in the morning
D Em G DIt s a hard, hard age resting heavy on my mind
D Em G BmAnd Hannah cries soft as the front door slowly closes
Em Em G DAnd she is not the only one I ve left behind
Em G D A7
D Em G BmI can still see you dancing in the street light
D Em G DBaltimore smile and rain drops dripping from your hair
D Em G BmOnce I held you close and you wrapped your legs around
Em Em G DI woke up in the night, it was not you, you were not there
Em G D A7
D Em G BmIt s not the end of the world, just this country as I know it
D Em G DI ve been across and back, I ve seen the high and chosen few
D Em G BmI will take the hit, because I m stronger and I know it
Em Em G DTake the cap off of the rocket boys and tell me when it s due
Em G D A7
D Em G BmI ve known lots of people , lots of drifters, lots of rejects,
D Em G DLots of clowns, lots of lovers, lots of liars, lots of thieves
D Em G BmAnd I have been the cat, I ve been the mouth, I ve been the closer
Em Em G DI am like a vault, your family's secret's safe with me
Em G D A7
D Em G BmSo forgive me if I drift off in the silent folds of memories
D Em G DBout the battles that I fought in war and the ones I ve loved before
D Em G BmCause I have lived through darkness, hope and lonely dying kisses
Em Em G DAnd I have seen the memory walk angry out the door.
Em G D A7
D Em G BmAnd I have been left for losers, left for heartache, left for money
D Em G DAnd I have been left alone, left behind and left for dead
D Em G BmAnd you can take the pieces there and fight for recognition
Em Em G DBut I will take the memories and silence in my head
Em G D A7
