Train – Save Me, San Francisco

Tabbed by: Sindre Berge

The riff of the song is pretty much the same all the way, and chord-wise it 
alternates between the following chords: 
D - Dsus4    G - G6    A - A6    D - Dsus4  
 
[Intro]
D     G     A     D          

[Verse 1]
D
I used to love the tenderloin 
G
Until I made some tender coin 
A                               D
And then I met some ladies from Marin 
D
We Took the Highway to the one, 
G
Up the coast to catch some sun 
A                               D
That left me with these blisters on my skin 
D
Don't know what I was on, 
G
But I think it grows in Oregon, 
A                               D
So I kept on goin' going on right through 
Bm
I drove into Seattle Rain 
A
Fell in love then missed the train 
G
That could have took me right back home to you 

[Chorus]
           D               G              A                 D
I've been high, I've been low, I've been yes and I've been oh hell no! 
           D               G
I've been rock'n roll and disco, 
           A               D
Won't you save me San Francisco? 

[Verse 2] 
D
Every day so caffeinated
G
I wish they were Golden Gated 
A                           D
Fillmore couldn't feel more miles away 
D
So wrap me up return to sender 
G
Let's forget this five year bender 
A                           D
Take me to my city by the bay! 
D
I never knew all that I had, 
G
Now Alcatraz don't sound so bad 
A                           D
At least they have a helluva fine below
Bm
If I could wish upon a star 
A
I would hitch a cable car 
G
To the place that I can always call my own! 

[Chorus]
           D               G              A                 D
I've been high, I've been low, I've been yes and I've been oh hell no! 
           D               G
I've been rock'n roll and disco, 
           A               D
Won't you save me San Francisco? 
           D               G              A                 D
I've been up, I've been down, I've been so damn lost since you're not around, 
           D               G
I've been reggae and calypso 
           A               D
Won't you save me San Francisco? 

[Bridge]
Em7             G
To tell you the truth 
D               A
I miss everything, everything 
Em7             G
It's a wild, wild beautiful world 
                D                 A
But there's a wide eyed girl back there 
                A
And she means everything, everything, 

[Chorus]
           D              G              A                D          
I've been stop, I've been go, I've been yes and I've been oh, hell no! 
           D         G
I've been rock'n and disco, 
           A         D
Won't you save me San Francisco? 
           D              G              A                D  
I've been up, I've been down, I've been so damn lost since you're not around, 
           D         G
I've been reggae and calypso
           A         D 
Won't you save me San Francisco?

[Outro]
D       G      A      D      x 4

What is the Hm chord in the middle of the verses? Do you mean Bm? Besides that its a great sounding chord progression, thanks for it.

You're damn right. It's my fault; Hm is the Norwegian way of writing Bm, whereas in Norway we would say Bm instead of Bbm. But, I've fixed it! It was wrong.
