[Eb]Mama was calling, b[G#]ut I couldn't answer
[Eb]I had a dog in the car, h[G#]ad a dog in my hands
[Eb]I was walking with these[G#] worn-out sho[Bb]es
[Eb]I tripped over Charlie and[G#] I hit the grass
[Eb]I was coming up running, I was[G#] coming up fast
But he b[Eb]eat me, just a-[G#]howling at the d[Bb]oor
[Cm]Oh Sally, d[G#]on't get down
'Cause [Eb]I been looking all [Bb]over town
For a [Eb]brand new set of wi[G#]ngs for you[Eb] [Bb]
For a [Eb]brand new set of wi[G#]ngs for you[Eb] [Bb]
[Eb] [G#] [Eb] [G#] [Eb] [G#] [Bb]  
Well I'm b[Eb]ack in the house, bang[G#] my head on a wall
Yeah and C[Eb]harlie's still laughing about[G#] watching me fall
I sa[Eb]y "Charlie, now what's t[G#]he big idea?"[Bb]
I'm b[Eb]ack in my room just[G#] packing my bags
And I'm th[Eb]inking November, ab[G#]out the time we've had
Just [Eb]walking out b[G#]y a stone wal[Bb]l
( Tab from: )
I'm g[Eb]onna get a ticket, gonna[G#] get on a plane
Tell that [Eb]pilot, take me s[G#]o far away
So I can c[Eb]all you up, say I m[G#]iss you like a fo[Bb]ol
Yeah but you [Eb]don't put me down, you don't t[G#]reat me bad
Say you under[Eb]stand about this prob[G#]lem I have
Well so[Eb]metimes, I kn[G#]ow you still wo[Bb]nder
Yeah got [Eb]held up in Paris, caught s[G#]moking on a train
If you ai[Eb]n't got your papers gonna [G#]get you detained
Don't beli[Eb]eve me I've got the p[G#]hotographs to p[Bb]rove it
You shou[Eb]ld've seen the look on the o[G#]ld man's face
When the p[Eb]olice threatened to h[G#]aul him away
You know he was[Eb] scared, but it was a[G#]lso kind of f[Bb]unny
Yeah well I c[Eb]an't sleep at night, can't a[G#]wake in the day
And we got the[Eb]se guitars, got so [G#]much to say
But no ti[Eb]me, no ene[G#]rgy to s[Bb]ay it
Yeah when you still [Eb]walk in the park there ain't[G#] nobody there
There's a ca[Eb]lm in the trees there's a [G#]cool in the air
And it's b[Eb]oring, but I fo[G#]und it kind of s[Bb]oothing
Yeah in a c[Eb]ouple of months when the le[G#]aves turn green
When the s[Eb]easons change, when the[G#] bird sings
Gonna g[Eb]rab you up, gonna t[G#]ake you here for [Bb]good
Yes and we'll w[Eb]alk by the river most [G#]every single day
And we'll e[Eb]at our dinner where the tou[G#]rists play
You know the city's [Eb]old but it n[G#]ever seems to get t[Bb]ired
