Intro: Am - G - Fmaj9 (2x)

     Am             Fmaj9
You think you know somebody.
     Am        Fmaj9
You think they know you.
     Am        Fmaj9
You think you know somebody.
     G
But man you never do.

Jackie used to live three blocks away from me
C
We used to throw the baseball and we’d climb his old oak tree
              F
And we would sneak his old man's cigarettes behind the picket fence
     C                                G
We swore that  we would always be the best of friends
           Am                     Em
We used to sit out on the curb and talk on summer nights,
     F                             G
Until Jackie's daddy’d call him, and then he took off like a light


Friday nights were all the same our high school senior year
We hung out at the river, drank Black Label beer
And we would listen to the Stones with all of our old friends
Maybe sneak a toke or two down where the river bends
I remember how I said  I'd drive him home one Friday night
Well he said, "Go on without me, buddy, I'll be alright."

We went off to college to start our Freshman year
Well I went off to school about an hour away from here
But you know Jackie, he took off, went to college out of state
He used to call me all the time, he used to tell me it was great
He said, "I'm coming home for Christmas, and I hope you'll do the same"
He’d say that he was comin, but Jackie never came

Chorus:

The night that he got married, well I was his best man
He’s moved back to town and now we’re neighbors again
I’ve since found myself a wife, so now I’m married, too
Our families get together every Sunday afternoon
His boy and my boy they sit out and talk at night
'Til Jackie calls for his boy, and he takes off like a light

Last night I saw the flashing lights, and quickly ran outside
A neighbor lady told me that Jackie's youngest boy had died
And I was shocked to see the cops had Jackie handcuffed in the car
‘Til this morning's paper told me that Jackie'd gone too far
And now they’re sayin’ Jackie, he ain’t the only one to blame
‘Cause battered children, they almost always grow up to do the same

Chorus:
