from the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie
Performed by Sutton Foster

[Intro] (Slow & Light)
G C7 G D9

[Verse 1]
  G
I studied all the pictures in magazines and books
  G
I memorized the subway map too
        C                                   Eb
It's one block north to Macy's and two to Brothers Brooks
        G/D               D7
Manhattan, I prepared for you

[Verse 2]
        G/D
You certainly are diff'rent from what they have back home
  G                       F/A
Where nothing's over three stories high
    C
And no one's in a hurry or wants to roam
        G/D                  D7
But I do, though they wonder why

[Pre-Chorus]
     B9
They said I would soon be good and lonely
     Am6
They said I would sing the homesick blues
     D#m
So I always have this ticket in my pocket
F#m7
A ticket home in my pocket
                  A7
To do with as I choose

[Turn] (Rip that Ticket)
N.C.
Burn the bridge, bet the store
Ab
Baby's coming home no more
Bb
Not for the life of me
Ab
Break the lock, post my bail
Ab
Done my time, I'm out of jail
Bb
Not for the life of me

[Bridge]
G                                  D
A life that's gotta be more than a one-light town
G
Where the light is always red

Gotta be more than an old ghost town
          A7
Where the ghost ain't even dead

[Outro] (Dixieland!)
Ab                 Eb
Clap-a-your hands, just-a-because
Ab                                   Db
Don't you know that where I am ain't where I was
Bb                  Cm
Not for the life of me
N.C.
Boh-doh-dee-oh
Eb
Not for the life of

Not for the life of
                    Ab
Not for the life of me!
