Intro:
 AAsus2Asus2/DAAsus2Asus2/DAAsus2Asus2/D
                                     all the other girls here are stars—you are the Northern Lights        

 AAsus2Asus2/DAAsus2Asus2/D
they try to shine in through your curtains—you're too close and too bright          

 AF#m
they try and they try but everything that they do

 DA
is the ghost of a trace of a pale imitation of you

 Asus2Asus2/DAAsus2Asus2/D
I'll be the one to drive you back home Kathleen         

this party was made with the night air and the chance that a smile
will wind its way from your face to one of the boys in your line
you act like you're hip to their tricks and you're strong
but a virgin Wurlitzer heart never once had a song
I'll be the one to drive you back home Kathleen

 AE
    and I'll have you back by break of day

 F#m
   I'm going your way anyway

 D
   and if you'd like to come along

 E7
   I'll be yours for a song

 AAsus2Asus2/D
I know you are waiting and I know that it is not for me
but I'm here and I'm ready and I've saved you the passenger seat
I won't be your last dance just your last goodnight
every heart is a package tangled up in knots someone else tied
I'll be the one to drive you back home Kathleen

 AAsus2Asus2/D
so crawl up your trellis and quietly back into your room
and I'll coast down the length of your drive by the light of the moon
and the next time we meet—a new kind of hello
both our hearts have a secret only both of us know
‘bout the night that I drove you back home Kathleen
