Josh Ritter - Kathleen

Capo 1st fret

A       [002220]
Asus2   [002200]
Asus2/D [020200]
F#m     [244222]
D       [200232]
E       [022100]
E7      [020100]

A Asus2 Asus2/D
A Asus2 Asus2/D
A                Asus2       Asus2/D                       A  Asus2  Asus2/D
all the other girls here are stars—you are the Northern Lights

     A            Asus2           Asus2/D                           A      Asus2   Asus2/D
they try to shine in through your curtains—you’re too close and too bright

     A                         F#m     
they try and they try but everything that they do

       D                                       A
is the ghost of a trace of a pale imitation of you

            Asus2  Asus2/D                 A     Asus2 Asus2/D
I’ll be the one to drive you back home Kathleen

this party was made with the night air and the chance that a smile
will wind its way from your face to one of the boys in your line
you act like you’re hip to their tricks and you’re strong
but a virgin Wurlitzer heart never once had a song
I’ll be the one to drive you back home Kathleen

A                                     E
   and I’ll have you back by break of day

   I’m going your way anyway

   and if you’d like to come along

   I’ll be yours for a song

A Asus2 Asus2/D
A Asus2 Asus2/D

I know you are waiting and I know that it is not for me
but I’m here and I’m ready and I’ve saved you the passenger seat
I won’t be your last dance just your last goodnight
every heart is a package tangled up in knots someone else tied
I’ll be the one to drive you back home Kathleen

A Asus2 Asus2/D
A Asus2 Asus2/D
A Asus2 Asus2/D
A Asus2 Asus2/D

so crawl up your trellis and quietly back into your room
and I’ll coast down the length of your drive by the light of the moon
and the next time we meet—a new kind of hello
both our hearts have a secret only both of us know
‘bout the night that I drove you back home Kathleen

Just a little note to everyone - if Ritter's playing live, he uses capo 3. Well, he does on the Live at Vicar Street CD...

Anyway, great tab!
