[G] [Cadd9] [G] 
all t[Cadd9]he other girls here are starsā??you are the Northern Lights
[G] [Cadd9] 
they try to[G] shine in [Cadd9]through your curtainsā??you're too close and too bright
[G]they try and they try but e[Em7]verything that they do
is the gh[Am]ost of a trace of a pale imitation[C] of you[G]
I'll be the one to drive you b[Cadd9]ack home Kathleen[G] [Cadd9]
[G] [Cadd9] 
th[G]is party[Cadd9] is made with the night air and the chance that a smile
[G] [Cadd9] 
will win[Cadd9]d its way from your face to one of the boys in your line
[G]you act like you're hip to their tricks and you'r[Em7]e strong
but a virgi[Am]n Wurlitzer heart never o[C]nce had a song[G]
I'll be the one to drive you bac[Cadd9]k home Kathleen[G] [Cadd9]
[G]and I'll have you back by break of day[D]
I'm going your way anyway[Cadd9]
and if you'd like to come along[G]
I'll be yours for a song[D]
Interlude: G Cadd9 G Cadd9
[G] [Cadd9] [G] 
I[Cadd9] know you are waiting and I know that it is not for me
[G] [Cadd9] 
but I'm here and I[G]'m ready an[Cadd9]d I've saved you the passenger seat
[G]I won't be your last dance just your last[Em7] goodnight
[Am] [C] 
every heart is a pack[G]age tangled up in knots someone else tied
I'll be the one to drive you back[Cadd9] home Kathleen[G] [Cadd] [9]
Gmaj Cadd9 Repeat 4 times
[G] [Cadd9] 
so c[Cadd9]rawl up your trellis and quietly back into your room
[G] [Cadd9] 
and I'll coa[G]st down th[Cadd9]e length of your drive by the light of the moon
[G]and the next time I see you a new kind of hello[Em7]
both our hearts h[Am]ave a secret only both of us know[C]
'bout the night th[G]at I drove [Cadd9]you back home Kathleen[G] [Cadd9]
Repeat G Cadd9
