Am                F
Not far away in a place by the sea
D7/F#                     F
Something is watching and waiting for me
     E F-5/C G/D E7(2)

Am              B7       E    Am
Something isn't right in Massachusetts
                   B7     E    E7
Don't stray out of Boston town
    Dm7            G7         C              Fmaj7
The home of Samuel Adams, the ride of Paul Revere
B7                                   E       F-5/C      E
Don't go past the signs that say the freedom trail ends here

Am                     B7      E         Am
First they'll take you in with songs and laughter
                       B7        E    E7
Then they'll fill your head with lies
    Dm7                  G7          C          Fmaj7
Too late you glimpse the secret, the sinister design
     B7             E            Am B7 E Am
That marries you forever to Brookliiiiiiine
     B7 E Am

Am           B7      E     Am
I was once a man who had a future
               B7    E    E7
And I'm sure I had a past
    Dm7         G7           C                  Fmaj7
But now I can't remember the place where I came from
B7                                 E          F-5/C   E
I'm ashamed and frightened of this thing that I've  become

Am               B7        E       Am
Now I'm rich and smart, my home is charming
            B7      E    E7
Sense of irony well-honed
  Dm7                G7        C                 Fmaj7
I buy used books and Britas, I snack on nuts and wine
B7            E                Am B7 E Am
I have been imprisoned in Brookliiiiiiine
     B7 E Am

A         Dm7        G7        C
You'll go deeper and deeper to learn how it ticks
       Dm7          G7         C
If you know what it is you can fight it
       Bm7-5      E            Am
Like a Tootsie Roll Pop it takes too many licks
      B7                          E
And before you get there you will bite it
   F-5/C          E
Or it    may bite you

Am             B7    E         Am
See the shadow fall across New England
                  B7 E    E7
Stretching out to Oregon
  Dm7                G7        C            Fmaj7
A talk show host, an author, a president, a king
B7                                E      F-5/C E
If you haven't noticed, they've infected every-thing

Am                 B7          E         Am
Keep your hometown close, keep Brookline closer
                    B7        E    E7
Hide your heart and watch the skies
    Dm7               G7            C                 Fmaj7
For when the darkness finds you the sun will cease to shine
B7               E                 Am B7 E Am
In the end, your only friend, Brookliiiiiiine
     B7 E Am
And it's one if by land, two if by sea
D7/F#                 F
Three if by guile and duplicity
     E F-5/C G/D E7(2)
     Am A13sus4
