Capo 2nd

G Bm Em   G Bm Em

G          Bm              Em
I saw your mother downtown yesterday
G           Bm             Em
She didn't know me and her hair was gray
G            Bm               Em
She told me all her kids had run away
G               Bm                 Em
They called at Christmas time but really what's left to say

C             Em                  Am
And now the neighbors they don't talk no more
C             Em       Am                            D     C
And late at night she listens to the wind under the door
C                       Bm   Am
And the cracks in the floor

G Bm Em   G Bm Em

G              Bm               Em
Oh guess who I ran into in the waiting room
G              Bm              Em
You know they use to say that kid was born with a silver spoon
G           Bm              Em
He told me that he left his home much too soon
G             Bm            Em
Cause no one ever told him about the power of a real full moon

C             Em               Am
And than he stopped and just closed his eyes
C             Em               Am                   D   C   Bm   Am
And whispered please could someone help him get outside

Em                                              Bm
And don't tell me you don't hear that hometown calling you
Cause you know what baby your still doing all the same things 
You use to do
      C                                   Am
Wo wo darling you never use to wait till tomorrow
                   D       C   Bm   Am
And now you can't wait at all

G Bm Em   G Bm Em

G Bm Em   G Bm Em
C  Em  Am   C  Em  Am   D  C  Bm  Am
Em  Em  Em  Em Em  Em      Em  G  Em  G  Em  G  Em  G

G              Bm             Em
Hey what's the news in the fashion world
G              Bm           Em
Is it long or short is it straight or curled
G                 Bm                 Em
Does it pull all my last years in a different world
G                 Bm              Em
Does it tell your mother how long ago she was a girl

C         Em                    Am
And even churchmen are wearing stripes
C             Em               Am                            D   C  
And all the hometown girls are getting in much too late tonight
C                           Bm   Am
I guess they gave up the fight

[Outro instrumental]
D   C   Bm   Am   D   F   E   Cm   D   F   E   Cm   D
