About this tab version
Live versions not on site. Rough guess as to the structure that Frank usually uses in some live performances, sounds alright to me. Lyrics are pulled from Frank's website, they change according on performances though. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse 1]
G                  
Lunchtime Friday, leave work early,
Am                            
Rushing through the suburbs to the station to catch the train,
C                                                          Cadd9
Heading up to town to Dave’s to get my glad rags on.
G
Because lately I’ve been running down, little things catching up,
Am
Excuses stretched thin and it’s hard not giving up.
C                                                                         Cadd9
Tonight we’re going to get it right, we’re going to have us a good one.

[Chorus]
Am                                    G
And the roll call is missing a name;
Am                                       Fmaj
Since you left things haven’t been the same,
C                                   G                            Fmaj
But I don’t blame you, there was nothing here to make you stay.
Am                                  G
But I remember the way that you’d light up a room when you walk in,
Am                                    Fmaj
The way that you’d lead a crowd when you sing.
C          G          Fmaj            
Jamie, this one is for you.

[Verse 2]
G
Pre-club beers at Dan’s before we hit the road.
Am
Nicely warmed up, pleasantly half-loaded,
C                                                                Cadd9
Ready for a night on fire, we’re going to get out the big guns.
G
And I run down the numbers, scan through the faces,
Am
Run through the plans, scout out the places.
C                                                                     Cadd9
I’m electrified, surrounded, but still missing something or someone.

[Chorus]
Am                                    G
And the roll call is missing a name;
Am                                       Fmaj
Since you left things haven’t been the same,
C                                   G                             Fmaj
But I don’t blame you, there was nothing here to make you stay.
Am                                G
But I remember the way that you’d light up a room when you walk in,
Am                           Fmaj
The way that you’d lead a crowd when you sing.
C          G          Fmaj            
Jamie, this one is for you.

[Bridge]
C                                    Csus4
I’m wide awake in this cityscape. 
C 
You did your time out on the road.
C
One day you stayed away for good.
C
You found a home down by the shore,
C
A place to hang your hat and more.
C
You sent me postcards to tell me of
C
Slowing down and finding love.
C
The thrill has gone from the city life;
C
I’m not far behind.

[Chorus]
Am                                   G
So you can strike my name from the roll call,
Am                            Fmaj                      
When night falls I’m leaving.
G                                Fmaj
There is nothing here to make me stay.
Am                              G
When I get to the coast I will send back a postcard
Am                               Fmaj
To tell all my old friends all about my new start.
C          G           Fmaj
Jamie I will see you soon.
