C                       Fsus2
dear old house that I grew up in
C                          Fsus2
I know that I’ll leave you any day
C                         Fsus2
dear old house that I grew up in
G                             Fsus2
can't you find a way to make em stay?

and all the girls I went to school with
walked downtown with all the cool kids
I was staked out in your cellar
making friends with dead umbrella
and every creak of every floorboard
tells the story of the girl I stuck inside
and if they move away
                        Fsus2         Fsus
I’ll have no place to … hide

C                         Fsus2
dear old house that I grew up in
G                       Fsus2
I’ve never really been in love
C                           Fsus2
you took my heart when I was a child
               G                            Fsus2
noises wrapped around my little body like a winter glove
you're just a random set of objects
in a town that's filled with sadness
in the armpit of the world
you're chopped down trees and rotting soil
and if I wanted to I’d keep you
I’d fill you up and heat you
with the market how it is, Amanda
                                Fsus2    Fsus
well you know, the price of ... oil

B-maj             Em                  C                G
Goodbye stairs, and goodbye stars on painted walls at home
B-maj            Em               C               G
attic door, and banister, I’ll miss you most of all
B-maj                 Em                 C                  G
you were supposed to keep me safe, this wasn't supposed to end
B-maj           Em            C        G        Fsus2
does it sound ridiculous, to call you my best friend?

C                         Fsus2
dear old house that I grew up in
G                           Fsus2
I know I haven't visited that much
C                                         Fsus2
but, every lifeless hotel and apartment I walk into
     G                                         Fsus2
just reminds me of the doorknobs that I want to touch
I won't miss you, when they sell you
to some evil yuppie couple
with the child who'll put Miley Cyrus posters in my bedroom

I am a native of the north
I am a rockstar on the road
I am now permanently located in each place I am known
but it doesn't feel like anywhere
                          Fsus2          Fsus
when you can't go back... home

C                         Fsus2
dear old house that I grew up in
G                               Fsus2
I know it isn't your fault this panned out,
C                                Fsus2
please don't take it personally, PS,
Tell the evil yuppie couple
Fsus2                       C
When I'm rich, I'll buy you back.
