Philadelphia
from I Love You, This is a Robbery by spoonboy

F -> G

A
two hours north of the nation's capital, 
          E
i took a break from what would be my final days 
                                      Bm
in a prison of my own making to see a friend who had said, 
                       D
"hey come on over," a favorite band, 
        E
and an ex-lover's ex-lover. 
     A
and ryan said that he liked my company, 
         E
so i didn't leave that night 
and stuck around for his birthday. 
    Bm
we rode out to the tops of the oil cans, 
     D                     E
to a pool in the woods and i jumped in... 

A -> E -> D -> F

             A
perpetually lost and so                                      
i made my way across the zip codes, 
E
sold tapes to the smaller distros, 
learned cliches of the drifter's ethos.
Bm 
learned addiction to new faces: 
D                          E
the pros and cons of being place-less.
                      A 
and my friends seemed stuck. 
but i didn't know what to say, 
     E
so i addressed the chorus 
and asked each voice individually. 
                   Bm
they all said "i'm doing this for my parents, 
i wish i had other choices. 
         D
it's not really what i want, 
            E
but i can't stand to be a disapointment." 

A -> E -> D -> F

      A#
and i wanted to say how at the end of the day 
            F
you're just accountable to your memories. 
           Cm                             F
and if you can't lament what might have been... 
Cm                          F
you'll never be a disapointment. 
      A#
but i couldn't find the words somehow, 
wrote down the names of the college towns, 
and waved out the window 
                              F      D#   F  D#
as the dots on the map passed by. 

    B
and ryan said that he liked my company,
             F# 
and though i know i never told him, 
well it really meant a lot to me, 
      C#m
and i said i'd make a point to always stop on by. 
      E                        F#
and i know that i don't, but i think about it every time 
         B        F#           E     G   
that the greyhound glides past philadelphia.
             B          F#        E    G 
and then the greyhound cries for philadelphia.
