[A]  [Asus2]      [Asus2/D]                            [A]all the other gir[Asus2]ls here are [Asus2/D]stars—you are the Northern Lig[A]hts[Asus2]       [Asus2/D]

they [A]try to shine [Asus2]in through your [Asus2/D]curtains—you’re too close and too [A]bright [Asus2]        [Asus2/D]

they [A]try and they try but every[F#m]thing that they do
is the [D]ghost of a trace of a pale imitation of [A]you
I’ll be the [Asus2]one to [Asus2/D]drive you back home Kath[A]leen  [Asus2]      [Asus2/D]
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

[A]   and I’ll have you back by break of [E]day
   I’m going your way any[F#m]way
   and if you’d like to come a[D]long
   I’ll be yours for a [E7]song
[A]  [Asus2]      [Asus2/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

[A]  [Asus2]      [Asus2/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
