[Intro]

G riff, B7 riff

G riff, B7 riff


[Verse 1]


G riff              B7 riff               
I’m leaving Oldtown

G riff             C/G riff
With no direction, learning how to be alone

C/B riff        Am riff
Learning how to stand on my own two feet

G riff               B7 riff
I’m getting good now

G riff          C/G
A recollection, hollow as a sparrow bone

C/B           Am/B7 riff                 G riff, B7 riff
Mythic as the stories our parents told


[Chorus 1]


Em riff
It’s getting colder, the days are shorter

C/Am/D7 riff
It’s not the season for the road

Em riff
Blow out the candle, pack up your bedroll

C/Am/B7 riff
I think it’s time to go


[Verse 2]


G riff               B7 riff 
I’m leaving old town

G riff              C/G riff
I’m bags and boxes, hand me downs and borrowed rooms

C/B riff           Am    N.C.
Still hoping to be loved anew 

G riff            B7 riff 
I need a new town

G riff                 C/G riff
Where no-one knows me, no-one heeds a thing I do

C/B riff          Am       N.C.
And no-one’s ever heard of you


[Chorus 2]

Em riff
It’s getting colder, the days are shorter

C/Am/D7 riff
It’s not the season for the road

Em riff
Blow out the candle, pack up your bedroll

C/Am/B7 riff
I think it’s time to go


[Bridge 1]

Em       Em/D#
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo

Em/D     Em/C#  C-Am Am-B7 B7
Hm-mm-mm-mm-mm

Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo

Em/D     Em/C#  C C
Hm-mm-mm-mm-mm


[Bridge 2]

 
G        G/F#     C  C
I need a new town
G        G/F#
I need a new town


[Chorus 3]

Em           Em/D#
It’s getting colder

Em/D         Em/C#
The days are shorter

C            C/B    Am        D7
It’s not the season for the road

Em riff
Blow out the candle, pack up your bedroll

C/Am/B7 riff
I think it’s time to go


[Outro]
