Intro
A F#m A E

Verse 1
             A                            F#m
Look Miles Davis, I've been swayed by the cool.
                                     A
There's just something about the summertime.
                                  E
There's just something about the moon.
                             F#m         D                 A           E
So I'll lay a kiss on this storm, toss it upside your window, by the roof.
                      F#m   D                    A         E  
Before you change your mind, Miles, bring in the cool.

Verse 2

                         A
Now honey, put on your red dress.
                       F#m
And you diamond soul shoes.
                       A   
Climb on down from that window.
                     E
Climb on out of your room.
                           F#m        D                   A        E
Cause I've never had a good thing and I've always had the blues.
                        F#m          D                                A        E
I always heard that you always kind of wandered, Miles, strike up the Cool.

Chorus
                 A            E
Don't wait too long to come home.
            F#m                       D
My have the years of our youth passed on.
                 A            E
Don't wait too long to come home.
      F#m                  D
I'll leave the front light on.
                  A   E             A
The night is our own, Don't wait too long.

Verse 3
              A                         F#m
Poor mister pitiful, I can't turn you loose.
                 A                                 E
You move like a dream I had, woke up sweating in my room.
                 A                           F#m   
Your Mama's got plans, your daddy's aim is true.
                 A
She never understood that it ain't no good.
                 E
Papa never heard the cool.
                    F#m     D          A        E
So now I got out my map and found me a storm.
                    F#m                         D
With a flick of the wrist and the turn of the key.
                       A             E
You'll just fall in my arms.

Chorus
                 A            E
Don't wait too long to come home.
            F#m                       D
My have the years of our youth passed on.
                 A            E
Don't wait too long to come home.
      F#m                  D
I'll leave the front light on.
                  A   E             A
The night is our own, Don't wait too long.

Bridge
                    B                          G#m
So why don't you sing to me on this long drive home?
            B                             G#m 
Let the sound of your voice sway sweet and slow.
         E           B
As we go down, down, down.
         F#          G#m
From our youth to the ground.
 E           B
 down, down, down.
         F#          G#m
From our youth to the ground.
  B                  F#
We might always be blue.

Jackson!
