††† C†††††††††††††† †††††††††Am - E††††††††††††† †††††††††G

1. †††††In the suburbs, I, ††††††††I learned to drive,

††††††† †††††††††C††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††Am††

††† and you told me weíd never survive,

E†††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††G

††† grab your motherís keys, weíre leaving.††††††† +C - Am - E - G

 

†† C†††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††Am†† - E††††† ††††††††††G

2. †††You always seemed so sure †††††††that one day weíd be fighting

C††††† ††††††††††††††††††Am†† - E††††††††††††† ††††††††G

††† in a suburban war,††††††your part of town against mine.

†††††††††† ††††††††††††C††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††Am

††† I saw you standing on the opposite shore,

E†††† †††††††††††††††G

††† but by the time the first bombs fell,

††† C††††††††††† ††††††††††††Am††† ††- E††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††G

††† we were already bored, †††††we were already, already bored.

 

C††††††††† ††††††††††††Am††††††††† †††††††††- E††††††††††††††††††††† D

††† Sometimes I canít believe it,††††††† Iím moving past the feeling.

C††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† - E††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††† C

††† sometimes I canít believe it,†††††† Iím moving past the feeling again.

 

†††† Am - E - G††††††††† ††††C††††††††††††† ††††††††††††Am ††- E

3. ††††††††††††††††††††††††The kids wanna be so hard, †††

††† but in my dreams weíre still screaming, and running through the yard,

E††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††† Am††† - E

††† when all of the walls that they built in the seventies finally fall,

††† †††††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††C†††††††††††††† ††††††††Am

††† and all of the houses they built in the seventies finally fall,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† meant nothing at all, meant nothing at all, it meant nothing.

 

C††††††††††† †††††††††††Am†††††††††††††† ††††- E†††††† ††††††††††††††D

4. ††††So can you understand,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††C††††† - Am

††† why I want a daughter while Iím still young,

†††††††††† ††††††††††E†††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††G

††† I want to hold her hand, and show her some beauty,

†† ††††††C††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††Am†† ††- E†††††††† †††††††G

††† before all this damage is done, †††††but if itís too much to ask,

†††††††† ††††C††††††††††††††† ††††††††- Am†††††††† †††††††††††††††††E††† - G

††† if itís too much to ask, ††††††††then send me a son.

 

†† C†††††††††††††††† ††††††††Am ††††- E†††††††††††† ††††††††††G

††††† ††††C††††††††††††† †††††††††- Am - E††††††††††† †††††††††††††G
