Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Five And Dime  Port Obrien

[C]Well I sleep all through my mornings
Spend my afternoons just lying in my bed
Cause Ive done [C]everything I could do and Ive said
Everything that I could have said
And it [C]kills me to think that
straight lines have taken over the life Ive led
F g C
So say fare thee well to the concrete
F g Am
Ill try to stand up on my own two feet
F g Am
There arent anymore winds in the road
F g C
That'd be my time to go

With my [Am]eyes glued on the [C]road
And from my [Am]fingers to my [C]toes
Am C g
I am aware of everything that I can know
So Ill stand [Am]tall and Ill stand [C]proud
Ill sing a [Am]song and Ill sing it [C]loud
Am C g
Ill bury all my apprehension underground
F g Am
I dont even know which way to go
F g C
Pack my things and head home

I keep smiling at everbody
Passing by me and all I get is dirty looks
And all my friends were empty liars
Ive just been hanging out with the wanderers and crooks
There's no value in education
Its just lies and pens and paper and notebooks
I forgot about the state of the world
Guess Ill just fall in love with the girl
Got too many years left to spend
Shes all I think about in the end

Ill take my cue from rock and roll
And everything that Ive been told
Everything that I have known for my whole life
And Ive been too afraid to use
And Ive been too abused
To be concerned that I may loose this silly game
I dont even know which way to go
Pack my things and head home

I got some family in Alaska
I got some friends out in old Ohio
And Id be fine to take some sun
And Id be more than fine to play in the snow
I dont want to be no buisness man
Dont want to be no crooked CEO
So take me out to Kodiak Isle
Ill go out to sea awhile
My legs hanging off the stern
See what I can learn

And the Northern Lights say hi
With all their colors in the sky
Ill be sure to tell them that Im doing fine
There's just so much to explore
that I have never seen before
And Ive found some things
that are easier to ignore
I dont even know which way to go
Pack my things and head home
