Verse 1 -
CMary, this station is playing every sad song
AmI remember like we were alive
CI heard and sung them all from inside of these walls
AmIn a prison cell, where we spent those nights
CAnd they burned up the diner where I always used to find her
AmLicking young boys blood from her claws
CAnd I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew
AmHer hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb
Prechorus- Guitar 1
F G My heart's like a wound
E B C#mHave you seen my hands?
B EJust look at 'em shake
B C#mAnd the song just keeps on repeating
B EDrop the needle again
B C#mAnd I dance with your ghost
B Abut that ain't the way
A BI can't move on and I can't stay the same
And all my friends say Chorus:
C#m A EHeeeeyyyy
BTurn the record over
C#m A EHeeeyyyyy
BI'll see you on the flip side
E B C#m AThere you go and turn the key and engine over
E BLet her go
C#m ALet somebody else lay at her feet
Slow it down here Am G F C (x4) G On President Street, you'll find the sisters praying over my city's heart While Union Avenue turns to its disciple who feels the pressure heat coming on hard Chorus : C G6sus4 Am F (x4)F G And if all was well and your heart could find the words Would we be for better baby, would we be for worse? And if there was a way to navigate your seas And if tonight, my true love... Faster here
C AmI was crawling around in my head in the haze of a trance.
C Am FRico said, "I'ma turn you onto a sound, cool out your head.
GThis is the sound from Camden town."
CAnd then I heard it like a shot through my skull to my brain,
AmI felt my fingertips tingle and it started to rain,
CWhen the walls of my bedroom were tremblin' around me,
AmThis ramshackle voice over attack of a bluesbeat,
F GTellin' me he's only looking for fun.
Am G FThis was the sound of the very last gang in town.
CHORUS:
C FAs heard by my wild young heart, like directions on a cold dark night,
C FSayin', 'Let it out... You're doin' all right.'
CAnd I heard it in his chain gang soul.
FIt wasn't just the same sad song.
C FSaying, 'Let it out, you're doing all right.'
Em F G CAnd I'm doing all right, are you doin' all right?

Am EWell, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go.
