[Intro]
G   F C G   F C G   F C G   


[Verse 1]
        G                          F
If it please the court I've had a lot to say
          C                  G
And it's not always been true
  G                        F
Standing here before you, judge
        C                     G
I make my pledge of truth to you


[Verse 2]
     G                   F
The waves came over the bowsprit
            C                           G
The decks awash with running green and foam
 G                             F 
Back there at the wheel I was terrified
      C                   G
Next day we first saw home


[Verse 3]
    G                          F
My relatives came over on the Mayflower
 C                        G
Landed on the shore almost alone
 G                      F
No that damn traffic today is terrible
           C                         G
And everywhere I look I see people alone


[Verse 4]
  G                           F
Alone with their heads looking in their hands
 C                        G
Lost in the conversation stare
 G                              F
Walking with their eyes looking at the screen
       C                           G
Talking like they were really there


[Instrumental]
G  F  C  G 


[Verse 5]
     G                         F
I'm lost in this new generation
           C           G
Left me behind it seems
 G                               F
Listening to the shadow of Jimi Hendrix
         C                     G
"Purple Haze", sounding like TV


[Verse 6]
    G                        F 
I stepped on someone's hand laying on the street
 C                       G
Both asleep and dead it may seem
    G                             F
He didn't even move there on the sidewalk
    C                           G
I stood there staring in a dream


[Verse 7]
     G                    F
She came along in her uniform
       C                            G  
Stood moving me away with a gentle hand
  G                             F
Dressed in white like a nightingale
               C                        G
Her name was Florence, Florence of the Land
     G                F         C  G
(I knew I'd seen her somewhere)


[Verse 8]
    G                        F
I knew I'd seen her somewhere
             C                G
But she was busy with him gone
     G                                F
She came with three different brothers
C                       G
Abraham, Martin and John


[Verse 9]
   G                          F
I heard a song about that once
                   C          G
And I never knew what it meant
        G                        F
Three stars died in a plane one night
          C                             G    
Rock and Roll, the message that was sent


[Verse 10]
   G                           F
I couldn't wrap my head around it
                     C    G
Didn't know what it meant
  G                        F   
Standing there on that sandy beach
 C                        G
Watching it turn to cement


[Verse 11]
 G                       F
Now I don't see all the colors
             C                       G
And I might miss some of their beauty
       G                F 
But I do see what I see
       C                G
And I want to do my duty


[Verse 12]
   G                         F
Enlisted in the Navy at the corner store
      C                    G
They had a recruiting booth
   G                    F
I covered my heart and raised my hand
      C                   G 
And swore it was the truth


[Outro]
G                F  C  G
 That's my pledge
             G   F
 That's my pledge
C                       G
 That's my pledge, judge
G  F  C 
G
 That's my pledge
G  F  C  G
