The Gaslight Anthem - The Navesink Banks

Tuning: Half-step down


[Intro]

Am F Am F C G Am


[Verse 1]

 Am         F      Am           F
"All hope abandon, ye who enter here"
         C                    G                 Am
Said the sign I read that was hanging above her bed
                    F
And the siren's all willing
      Am                   F
But a man can't ignore the signs
         C                       G            Am
You gotta keep a good eye on the winding road ahead


[Chorus]

    Am                 C              F
And my first sin was a young American girl
    Am                 C              F
And my first sin was a young American girl


[Interlude]

Am F Am F C G Am


[Verse 2]

      Am                    F
And I spent time 'neath the trestles
         Am                      F
With the punks and the dimestore saints
         C                      G                 Am
We kept faith and a switchblade tucked beneath my coat
                     F
And I ran with dirty angels
Am               F
Slept out in the rain
        C                    G            Am
We were scared and tired and barely seventeen


[Chorus]

    Am                   C                 F
And my first sin was the fear that made me old
    Am                   C                 F
And my first sin was the fear that made me old


[Interlude]

Am F Am F C G Am


[Verse 3]

          F
And now I walk down by the shipyards
         G
Near the place where I was born
         C                            F
Saying, "Oh Maria, if you'da known me when"
    Am       F              Am                   F   
But she only smiles by the light on the Navesink Banks
         C           G           Am
Saying, "Listen baby, I know you now"

     Am                 F
Then she steps into the river
    Am                  F
And I just stand by the moon
 C                     G          Am
Thinking 'bout a ghost I hear at night
               Am                   C                   F
And she says, "Your first sin was a lie you told yourself.
     Am                   C             F
"And your first sin was a lie you told yourself.
