This Old Town

Tom Petty

 GCFEm
 Living free is gaining on me
 GCF
 Can't keep ahead of my dreams
 GCFEm
 My relief turned out a thief
 GCF
 Smooth as rocks in the stream

 GEm
 This old town is a sad affair
 FEm
 You be glad you're not there
 G
 It ties your hands
 Em
 It spikes your drink
 FEmA
 I'd say more, but I can't think

 GCFEm
 Lazy Jim took a bottle with him
 GCF
 Tried to flag down a train
 GC
 Left a note
 FEm
Couldn't read what he wrote
 GCF
 A light came on in my brain

 GEm
 This old town is a sad affair
 FEm
 You be glad you're not there
 G
 It ties your hands
 Em
 It spikes your drink
 FEmA
 I'd say more, but I can't think

 DG
 The hills are gold
 CF
 Mornings are cold
 DGCF
 Don't know a soul on the street   
 DGCF
 I keep to myself like everyone else
 DGCF
 Nobody says much to me        

 GEmFEmGEmFEmA
 GCFEm
 Go to bed, fight thoughts in my head
 GCF
 In the time between wake and sleep
 GCFEm
 Rats to kill, contracts to fill
 GCF
 It's on ice, but it won't keep

 GEm
 This old town is a sad affair
 FEm
 You be glad you're not there
 G
 It ties your hands
 Em
 It spikes your drink
 FEmA
 I'd say more, but I can't think

 GEm
 This old town is a sad affair
 FEm
 You be glad you're not there
 G
 It ties your hands
 Em
 It spikes your drink
 FEmA
 I'd say more, but I can't think
