G                Em              C
I grew up on the Indiana side of Chicago
Am                         C/G                      Em
With the rusty steel mills belching in the westward wind
G                     Em                    C                                   
I watched Mom and Dad trying to clean their sorrow
Am                      C/G         Em
With my brothers and me at old Lake Michigan


                 D
There's a little boy
                   Em
He's got big brown eyes
                  D
He's got swimming trunks 
                A
‘bout twice his size
                        D
Looking at a steel mill sunset
           Em
Skipping a stone, 
C      C/E     Am        G         D 
"hey, ain't you a little young to  feel so alone?"


G                     Em                          C
Well they changed the name of my hometown When we moved away
Am                 C/G                Em
Now it's more than words that I don't recognize
G                            Em                                     C
That kid down at the filling station tried to keep my change from a twenty
Am                    C/G              Em
I could see that cold assurance in his eyes


                 D                     Em
Hey you need ten dollars for the rainy day?
               D                   A    
Save and go to college or just get away
                        D                  Em
Or you could spend that money on a two-day stone
   C      C/E       Am             G          D    
Oh, there are worse things in this world than being alone let me tell you now...


Solo:  
Am      Em (x7)
C       C/E     Am      G       D       

              G            Em               C
So, if you're driving from Chicago, east of Gary
        Am            C/G               Em
And you find a fallen town that has two names
G                     Em                 C
There'll be no one to possibly remember
  Am                         C/G             Em
A little lonesome brown-eyed boy who went by James

                   D 
Oh the mill's shut down
                    Em
But the air's still sour
                D
You get a hotel room
                     A
You gotta pay by the hour
                D                   
Oh the good old days 
                  Em
are just good and gone
C          C/E   Am    G        D
Like autumn leaves on a burning lawn


G                Em              C
I grew up on the Indiana side of Chicago
Am                         C/G                      Em
With the rusty steel mills belching in the westward wind
