you don't know me, you don't even care.....oh yeah

she said I think I'll go to Boston...
                     G
I think I'll start a new life,
                      F                           G
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name,
                      C                      G
I'll get out of California, I'm tired of the weather,
                   F                       G
I think I'll get a lover and fly em out to Spain...

I think I'll go to Boston,
                      G
I think that I'm just tired
                  F                            G
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind...
                   C                       G
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of the sunset,
                         F                         G
I hear it's nice in the Summer, some snow would be nice...


C                  G              F           G
you don't know me, you don't even care.....oh yeah
