D   A       Bm     F#m      G          D       G            Asus4
 Of all the stupid things I could have thought this was the worst
D  A       Bm   F#m        G     D       G    Asus4
 I started to believe that I was born at seventeen
D    A       Bm     F#m         G       D       G      Asus4
 And all the stupid things, the letters and the broken verse
D       A      Bm     F#m    G      D       G             Asus4
 Stayed hidden at the bottom of the drawer, they'd always been
D    A     Bm             F#m      G       D          G      Asus4
 And now I plough through files of bills receipts and credit cards
    D       A       Bm    F#m      G                A
And tickets and the daily news and sometimes I just wanna go back to my

Bm   F#m            G                       D
Home Town, though I know it'll never be the same
A          Bm   F#m               G
Back to my home town, 'cause it's been so long,
        A                       E                [D]
And I'm wondering if it's still there ... ooh ooh ooh

D   A           Bm     F#m       G    D        G    Asus4
 We think we're pretty smart, us city slickers get around
D    A        Bm      F#m      G        D        G   Asus4
 And when the going's rough we kill the pain and relocate
D      A     Bm       F#m   G        D      G   Asus4
 We're never married, never faithful not to any town
D      A     Bm        F#m    G    D        G    Asus4
But we never leave the past behind we just accumulate
   D         A        Bm    F#m     G       D      G       Asus4
So sometimes when the music stops I seem to hear a distant sound
   D         A         Bm       F#m        G 
Of waves and seagulls, football crowds and churchbells, 
      A
And I wanna go back to my

Bm   F#m            G                       D
Home Town, though I know it'll never be the same
A          Bm   F#m               G
Back to my home town, 'cause it's been so long,
        A                       [E]
And I'm wondering if it's still there
