Fifth Street – Craig K. West

[Verse 1]

C                 C aug
Autumn air I was seventeen 
Am                     G           F
out late at night in a bowling alley parking lot
                        G
I should have left long ago
C                            C aug
When a redheaded girl with double pierced ears 
             Am                         G
Who wouldn’t break my heart for another couple of years
    F                                        G
Was begging me to stay out and then take her home
           F        
But when I dropped her off on the wrong side of town
           G
I heard my mother’s words in my head


[Chorus]

C                         E
Fifth street will get you home son, 
         Am         G       F
then the river will get you home
                                     C         Am
You’ve got a lot to learn before you take that turn
C                 G       C
Fifth street will get you home


[Verse 1]

C                     C aug
Six years later with a college degree
Am                      G            F
I moved away to start a family of my own
                        G
The future was at my feet
C                    C aug
Driving back home at Christmas time
             Am                        G
Through the snow covered Hudson river valley drive
    F                                        G
Down seventy one, past Cleveland, Columbus, and then
           F        
I’d smile at the exit that I knew so well 
           G
And I heard these words in my head


[Chorus]

C                         E
Fifth street will get you home son, 
         Am         G       F
then the river will get you home
                                     C         Am
You’ve got a lot to learn before you take that turn
C                 G       C
Fifth street will get you home
Bridge
Am               G             C
This city won’t take you as a prisoner
       F                                      G
These streets won’t tie you down or fence you in
         C                 C aug          Am         G         F
But this road will show the way if you’re lost, you can’t get home
F                                    G
This city lifts you up and makes you whole


[Verse 3]

C                         C aug
A few years later and I’m back in town
Am                      G           
A part time dad with no wife around 
         F                     C                         G                
Driving late at night to see a friend once her kids are asleep
    C                        C aug
The drive so familiar like a lingering song
    Am                   G                
The comforting road just eases me along
       F                G                          C
Saying welcome back, we missed you, everything is alright
           F                                 G                     
The lights shine off the river everything’s calm, then I hear those 
words


[Chorus]

C                         E
Fifth street will get you home son, 
         Am         G       F
then the river will get you home
                                     C         Am
You’ve got a lot to learn before you take that turn
C                 G       C
Fifth street will get you home
