This Old Town  Tom Petty

[G]Living [C]free is [F]gaining on [Em]me
[G]Can't keep [C]ahead of my [F]dreams
[G]My re[C]lief [F]turned out a [Em]thief
[G]Smooth as [C]rocks in the [F]stream

[G]This old town is a [Em]sad affair
[F]You be glad [Em]you're not there
[G]It ties your hands
[Em]It spikes your drink
[F]I'd say more, [Em]but I can't th[A]ink

[G]Lazy Ji[C]m took a [F]bottle with [Em]him
[G]Tried to [C]flag down a [F]train
[G]Left a not[C]e
Coul[F]dn't read what he [Em]wrote
[G]A light came [C]on in my [F]brain


[G]This old town is a [Em]sad affair
[F]You be glad [Em]you're not there
[G]It ties your hands
[Em]It spikes your drink
[F]I'd say more, [Em]but I can't th[A]ink

[D]The hills are [G]gold
[C]Mornings are [F]cold
[D]Don't know a [G]soul on the [C]street  [F]
[D]I keep to mys[G]elf like [C]everyone [F]else
[D]Nobody sa[G]ys much to [C]me       [F]

[G]   [Em]    [F]   [Em]    [G]   [Em]    [F]   [Em]    [A]         
[G]Go to [C]bed, fight [F]thoughts in my [Em]head
[G]In the time [C]between wake and [F]sleep
[G]Rats to [C]kill, [F]contracts to [Em]fill
[G]It's on [C]ice, but it won't [F]keep


[G]This old town is a [Em]sad affair
[F]You be glad [Em]you're not there
[G]It ties your hands
[Em]It spikes your drink
[F]I'd say more, [Em]but I can't th[A]ink


[G]This old town is a [Em]sad affair
[F]You be glad [Em]you're not there
[G]It ties your hands
[Em]It spikes your drink
[F]I'd say more, [Em]but I can't th[A]ink

[G]   [Em]    [F]   [Em]    [G]   [Em]    [F]   [Em]    [A]
