The Navesink Banks  The Gaslight Anthem

Tuning: Eb
Intro: Am, F, Am, F, C, G, Am x2
"[Am]All hope ab[F]andon, [Am]ye who enter [F]here"
Said the [C]sign I read that was [G]hanging above her [Am]bed
And the siren's all [F]willing
But a [Am]man can't ignore the [F]signs
You gotta[C] keep a good eye on the [G]winding road [Am]ahead
And [C]my first sin was a[G] young American[F] girl
And [C]my first sin was a[G] young American[F] girl
Interlude: Am, F, Am, F, C, G, Am
And I [Am]spent time 'neath the [F]trestles
With the [Am]punks and the dimestore [F]saints
We kept f[C]aith and a switchblade [G]tucked beneath my [F]coat (Baby, just in case)
And I ran with dirty [F]angels
[Am]Slept out in the [F]rain
We were [C]scared and tired and [G]barely sevent[Am]een
And [C]my first sin was the[G] fear that made me[F] old
And [C]my first sin was the[G] fear that made me[F] old
Interlude: Am, F, Am, F, C, G, Am
And now I [F]walk down by the shipyards
Near the [G]place where I was born
Saying, "[C]Oh Maria, if you'da known me [F]when"
But [Am]she only [F]smiles by the l[Am]ight on the Navesink [F]Banks
Saying, "[C]Listen baby,[G] I know you [Am]now"
Then [Am]she steps into the [F]river
And [Am]I just stand by the [F]moon
T[C]hinking 'bout a ghost [G]I hear at n[Am]ight
And she says, "[C]Your first sin was a[G] lie you told yourse[F]lf.
"And [C]your first sin was a[G] lie you told.[F].. to yourself.
Outro: Am, F, Am, F, C, G, Am x2
