E                A
 I went back to Boston
E                           A
 Back to the city you were lost in
E                    A
 I went back to the place
                            E    A
 Without your face in the stone

E                  A
 Walked around Harvard Square
      E                 A
 The runaway kids are still hanging out there
                 E  
 And I took the red line
  A                             E      A
 All the way across the River Charles


  C                   G
 Some things try and try
           D                   C
 But they never fly, and they never fly
      C                 G
 You reach up from the waves
                       D    C          E    A    E    A
 And find that you're only waving goodbye


E                 A
 Went walking in Boston
E                A
 Over a bridge I used to walk on
        E
 I was looking for my heart
            A                      E    A
 That I'd flung into that sea of stone


         E                    A
 Boston said, you need not apply
E                     A
 For your license to fly
             E                       A
 Hey, young lady, don't look so surprised
                       E     A
 You know you're not alone


  C                   G
 Some things try and try
           D                   C
 But they never fly, and they never fly
      C                 G
 You reach up from the waves
                       D    C          E    A    E    A
 And find that you're only waving goodbye


 C    G    D    C    C    G    D    (C)


E                (A)
 It was Memorial Day
E                    (A)
 I went to where you lay
                          E
 There were thousands of people
           (A)                  E    (A)
 Just like you in a giant graveyard

E                 A
 You came all of that way
                  E                  A  
 Looking for the sky, you got a slap in the face
            E                A
 You had a desperate need to be loved
                            E
 You just got put in that place
                   A          
 You better know your place, boy


  C                   G
 Some things try and try
           D                   C
 But they never fly, and they never fly
      C                 G
 You reach up from the waves
                       D    C          E    A    E    A
 And find that you're only waving goodbye
  E    A
 Only waving
        E     A
 You're only waving
        E     A
 You're only waving
        E     A          C      G      D      C      C      G      D      (C)
 You're only waving goodbye
