San Diego Serenade  Tom Waits

Tune down half a step
Some of the chords were missing or wrong in the other versions, so I thought I'd submit
version with some important changes.
[G] [C] [D] [G]  
[G] [C] [D] [G]  
[G]I never s[B7]aw the morning 'til I [Em]stayed up all ni[G7]ght
[C] [D] [G] [B] 
I never s[G]aw the sunshine 'til you turned out the light
[C] [D] [G] [B] 
I never s[G]aw my hometown until I stayed away too long
[C]I never heard the [D]melody, until I [C]needed [D]a [G]song.
[G] [C] [D] [G]  
[G] [C] [D] [G]  
I never saw the white line, 'til I was leaving you behind
I never knew I needed you 'til I was caught up in a bind
I never spoke 'I love you' 'til I cursed you in vain,
I never felt my heartstrings until I nearly went insane.
I never saw the east coast 'til I move to the west
I never saw the moonlight until it shone off your breast
I never saw your heart 'til someone tried to steal, tried to steal it away
I never saw your tears until they rolled down your face.
I never saw the morning 'til I stayed up all night
I never saw the sunshine 'til you turned out your love light, baby
I never saw my hometown 'til I stayed away too long
I never heard the melody until I needed the song
