Jacksonville Skyline  Whiskeytown

Whiskeytown Jacksonville Skyline written by Ryan Adams
[B]Well the banks of the river run through my hometown
[B]Born on the dirt roads, and i scraped my k[E]nees
[B]Well they paved the roads eventually
[B]With neon signs and car dealerships and [E]diners
[F#]The soldiers fill the [G#m]hotels on the [E]weekends
[F#]I saw the pretty [G#m]women as I [E]walked [F#]through [B]town
[B]Well I moved away soon as I turned sixteen
[B] [E] 
Figured I was old enough to go and work a job
[B]Well i floated down main street pools of carlights
[B]Overcame me wishin' I was still back [E]home
[F#]The soldiers fill the [G#m]hotels on the [E]weekends
[F#]I saw the pretty [G#m]women as I [E]walked [F#]through [B]town
[B]Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
[B]Seems like you're lucky if it ever changes red to [E]green
[B]I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness
[B]With 50 cent picture frames bought at a five and [E]dime
[F#]I ended up a [G#m]soldier on the [E]weekend
[F#]Looking for a [G#m]vacancy I [E]wasn't able to find
[F#]Somewhere the night sky [G#m]hangs like a [E]blanket
[F#]Shoot it with my [G#m]capgun just to [E]make it
[E]Seem [F#]like [B]stars
