38 years Old The Tragically Hip

Am  Am6  C  C/B  G 

Am          Am6            C   C/B   G
Twelve men broke loose in '73
Am         Am6            C   C/B   G
From Mill haven maximum security
Am          Am6            C              C/B   G
Twelve pictures lined up across the front page
Am                        Am6       C      C/B   G
Seems the Mounties had a summertime war to wage
Am         Am6                      C         C/B   G
The chief told the people they had nothing to fear
Am                     Am6         C          C/B   G
The last thing they'd wanna do is hang around here
Am          Am6                   C           C/B   G
They mostly came from towns with long French names
Am              Am6        C         C/B   G
But one of the dozen was a hometown shame

C            G/B                  Am
Same pattern on the table, same clock on the wall
C        G/B             Am
Been one seat empty 18 years in all
C         G/B       Am
Freezing slow time away from the world
C     D           Am
He’s 38 years old,   never kissed a girl
C     D           Am                   C  D Am (Am  Am6  C  C/B  G)X2
He’s 38 years old,    never kissed a girl

Am                      Am6              C        C/B   G
We were sittin' at the table, heard the telephone ring
Am               Am6            C      C/B   G
Father said he'd tell me if he saw anything
Am                    Am6           C             C/B   G
Heard the tap on the window in the middle of the night
Am             Am6             C            C/B   G
Held back the curtains for my older brother Mike

Am                            D
See my sister got raped, so a man got killed
C                                 D
Little boy went to prison, man's buried on the hill
Am                                    D
Folks went back to normal when they closed the case
C                                         D           
They still stare at their shoes when they pass our place

(Am D)X4   (Am Am6 C C/B G)X2


Am         Am6                  C       C/B   G
My mother cried the horror has finally ceased
Am           Am6                 C         C/B   G
He whispered yeah, for the time being, at least
Am            Am6              C         C/B      G
And over his shoulder, on the squad car megaphone
Am            Am6                  C         C/B   G
Said let's go Michael, son, we're takin' you home

C            G/B                 Am
Same pattern on the table, same clock on the wall
C        G/B             Am
Been one seat empty 18 years in all
C         G/B       Am
Freezing slow time away from the world
C     D           Am
He’s 38 years old,   never kissed a girl
C     D           Am
He’s 38 years old,   never kissed a girl
C     D           Am                   D  Am  
He’s 38 years old,    never kissed a girl 

C D Am
