17  Cross Canadian Ragweed

G)Sirens wail and a flashing light
G C
Nothing better to do on a Tuesday night
G*
But give me hell
G ***
Where ya headed, what are you out for
[G]Don't see much of you 'round here any[C]more
G*
I guess it's just as well
[D]Once upon a time yo[C]u had it all
[D]You let everybody d[C]own
D C G*
You're always seventeen in your hometown.

(Chorus)
[D]Running from your fo[C]lks, running from the l[G]aw
[D]Running from lo[C]ve, running from your f[G]ears, running from it [D]all
[C]You keep on ru[D]nning, boy
You'll r[G]un yourself [G/F#]in the gr[Em]ound
C D G * **
You're always seventeen in your hometown

G ***
Her porch swing still looks the same
[G]She probably won't even remember my n[C]ame
G***
Just like she didn't back then
G ***
Is she married, is she doing fine
[G]Does she known about all the nights I laid awake cr[C]yin'
G*
Just to know her hand
[D]The door opens and [C]I run away
[D]Just like the same old c[C]lown
D C G*
You're always seventeen in your hometown

(Repeat Chorus)

* ** * ** (Solo)

[G]Nobody is gonna miss me
[G]No tears will fall, no one's gonna w[C]eep
When I hit that ro[G]ad
[G]My boots are broken, my brain is sore                        [G]
From keeping up with their little world            [C]
I've got a heavy l[G]oad
[D]Gonna leave 'em all just li[C]ke before
[D]I'm big city b[C]ound
D C G*
You're always seventeen in your hometown

(Repeat Chorus)
