[Verse 1]

         G    
One soft infested summer 
               Em
Me and Terry became friends 
                 G
Trying in vain to breathe 
                      Em
The fire we was born in
                 G 
Catching rides to the outskirts 

            Em
Tying faith between our teeth 
                          D
Sleeping in that old abandoned beach house
             C                 D
Getting wasted in the heat 

      G                  C
And hiding on the backstreets 
G                    C   
   Hiding on the backstreets
              G                       C6  Am7    G      Em
With a love so hard and filled with defeat
                           C                                                G  Em G Em 
Running for our lives at night on them backstreets 


[Verse 2]

          G       
Slow dancing in the dark
               Em  
On the beach at Stockton's Wing 
              G
Where desperate lovers park 
                           Em
We sat with the last of the Duke Street Kings 
D 
Huddled in our cars
C  
Waiting for the bells that ring 
           Am
In the deep heart of the night 
             C                        D11
We let lose of everything 

D7sus4  G           C
To go running on the backstreets 
G                  C
Running on the backstreets 
                   G               C     Am    G Em
Terry you swore we'd live forever 
C                                                       G    Em
Taking it on them backstreets together 


[Bridge]

G Em

A                                    F#m
Endless juke joints and Valentino drag 
           A       
Where dancers scraped the tears 
                  F#m
Up off the streets dressed down in rags
       A  
Running into the darkness
                F#m 
Some hurt bad some really dying 
       E             
At night sometimes it seemed     
                                D
You could hear the whole damn city crying 
Blame it on the lies that killed us 
E
Blame it on the truth that ran us down 
A
You can blame it all on me Terry 
             D
It don't matter to me now 
When the breakdown hit at midnight 
                   E
There was nothing left to say 
            A 
But I hated him 
           E                       
And I hated you when you went away

[Verse 3]

           G
Well laying here in the dark 
                         Em
You're like an angel on my chest 
             G 
Just another tramp of hearts 
               Em
Crying tears of faithlessness 
       D 
Remember all the movies, Terry 
C
We'd go see 
                 Am 
Trying to learn to walk like the heroes 
         C                          D11
We thought we had to be 

         Em  
Well after all this time 
                       Bm
To find we're just like all the rest 
            C 
Stranded in the park 
                           D7sus4
And forced to confess 
    G             C
To hiding on the backstreets 
G             C
Hiding on the backstreets 
                    G          C            G Em
Where we swore forever friends 
                     C                       G  
On the backstreets until the end

Hiding on the backstreet hiding on the backstreets (x3)
                      Am                                    F
Hiding on the Backstreets Hiding on the backstreets
            D  C
Its alright
              C
We'll go hiding on the backstreets tonight
