C             G   F           G
  Danny came home   with a degree
C                  G           F    G
  and settled back in his old room
C              G  F              G
  and i had a job   on the 10th floor
C              G          F      G?!? 
  here in the town of my youth
F               G   Am                Em
  and everyone else    that i'd ever known
F                   Em        G
  had found a good reason to move
C                      G
  so when danny called up and said
F              G
  how 'bout a beer well
F                G        C
  i had nothing better to do


C            G  F             G
  10 years ago    we were in school
C          G           F      G
  i was a friend of a friend
C            G    F            G
  chemistry books   under his arms
C                  G           F     G
  and lord of the flies in my hands
F             G    Am                 Em
  we weren't jocks    but we weren't nerds
F              Em         G
  we were somewhere in between
C             G    F                  G
  we weren't stars   no we were just extras
F         G                  C 
  in our little high school scene


F                                       C 
  some friends are roads that take you onwards
Am                   Em                      Dm  G
   some friends are highways that bring you home
C                 G                 Am 
  then there are those who are the driveways
         G               Am 
get you out the door on fridays
      G                     C
that you would have spent alone

C                 G
  He'd get me at 8:00
F                        G
  and we'd head to this place
C                G              F    G
  out where the road turned to dirt
C                 G        F           G
  He'd have that beer then   he'd dsappear
C             G          F     G
  hot on the trail of a skirt
F                 G        Am                     Em           
  He wasn't that brave but    the one thing that saved him
F                Em              G        
  was knowing a more frightened man
                  G                  F             G
  so i'd save his place i'd tell him   go get her ace
F               G            C
  then i would clap for the band
 

 F                                       C 
  some friends are roads that take you onwards
Am                   Em                      Dm  G
   some friends are highways that bring you home
C                 G                 Am 
  then there are those who are the driveways
         G               Am 
get you out the door on fridays
      G                     C
that you would have spent alone

C                 G     F            G
  an offer came through   and danny agreed
C                    G        F   G
  and they flew him off to hawaii
C                 G   F             G
  i knew that he left   but i overslept
C              G                 F    G
  and i never called to say goodbye
F                G   Am               Em
  and i went to work    and i went to bed
F                     Em           G
  and nothin' seemed different at all
C               G     F          G
  so isn't it strange   that of all things
F                 G         C
  i would choose this to recall


 F                                       C 
  some friends are roads that take you onwards
Am                   Em                      Dm  G
   some friends are highways that bring you home
C                 G                 Am 
  then there are those who are the driveways
         G               Am 
get you out the door on fridays
      G                     Am  D7 
that you would have spent alone

A7      G                      C
  yeah you would haves spent alone
