[C] [F] [G] 
I walk down this br[C]ick road, ignoring the busloads, the sleepers are down for the count
[F] [G] [F] 
And I[G]'ll never forge[C]t on the day that we met, or last night when we painted the town
We [C]screamed and we ran the streets of o[F]ld Amsterdam, l[G]ooking for pay phones to call
[F] [G] [F] 
Yeah but n[G]one of our love[C]d ones could quite understand, sometimes we just live for the fall
[C] [F] [G] 
And I've been to Hol[C]land and I've been to New York, and I've seen the Golden Gate Bridge
[F] [G] [F] 
And I'v[G]e done the th[C]ings my parents have dreamed, I ain't never seen nothing like this
[C] [F] [G] 
She came to[C] LA from the red Georgia clay, and I loved her right from the start
[F] [G] [F] 
And she [C]took my eye, like a thief in the night, I know she'd stolen my heart
[C] [F] [G] 
She knows that I love [C]her, she knows that I miss her, I wish she was standing right here
[F] [G] [F] 
At t[G]he end o[C]f each day I lay down and pray for just one chance to see her again
[C] [F] 
Well I looked to my ri[C]ght, there's a man on a bike, he says the sun has been hiding two days
[F] [G] [F] 
And if I mis[G]sed you [C]more I would have blown the door but I can't find the door anyways
[C] [F] [G] 
And I don't sp[C]eak the language, and all of the anguish it causes me to ask twice
[F] [G]  
I don't know[G] much, I k[C]now that I love the Dutch, 'cause they don't have to try to be nice
