Jacksonville Skyline  Whiskeytown

written by Ryan Adams
Album: Pneumonia
The guitar is tuned 1/2 step down so if you play in standard tuning just play on the key of B.
This tab is according to the album version.I've see videos of Ryan play this live recently and
he sometimes in the chorus does Am to G to F, but that is not how it is recorded in Pneumonia.
Verse 1
[C]Well the banks of the river run through my hometown
[C]Born on the dirt roads, and i scraped my [F]knees
[C]Well they paved the roads eventually
[C]With neon signs and car dealerships and[F] diners
[G]The soldiers fill the[Am] hotels on t[F]he weekends
[G]I saw the pretty[Am] women as I [F]walked [G]through[C] town
( Tab from: )
Verse 2
[C]Well I moved away soon as I turned sixteen
[C]Figured I was old enough to go and work a [F]job
[C]Well i floated down main street pools of carlights
[C]Overcame me wishin' I was still back [F]home
[G]The soldiers fill the[Am] hotels on th[F]e weekends
[G]I saw the pretty[Am] women as I [F]walked [G]through[C] town
Verse 3
[C]Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
[C]Seems like you're lucky if it ever changes red to [F]green
[C]I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness
[C]With 50 cent picture frames bought at a five and [F]dime
[G]I ended up a[Am] soldier on the week[F]end
[G]Looking for a[Am] vacancy I[F] wasn't able to find
[G]Somewhere the night sky [Am]hangs like a [F]blanket
[G]Shoot it with my c[Am]apgun just to [F]make it [G]seem like [C]stars
Thank you
