[Intro]
Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 Em7 D Dsus4 D Cadd9 Cadd9
Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 Em7 D Dsus4 D Cadd9 Cadd9 [Verse]
E G#m Bsus2 Bsus4 Bsus2 I had a friend who came from far away C#m G#m Bsus2 Bsus4 Bsus2 And every day we would go down by the river and play Cadd9 G/B D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Like long lost summers of the past Cadd9 G/B D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D These interrupted games weren’t meant to last [Chorus]
Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 I sit and watch the lights go out on my home
Em7
my growing up town
D Dsus4 D Cadd9 And I wonder what he’s doing now Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 And I will build a wicker man and put inside
Em7
all those things
D Dsus4 D Cadd9 That make me old before my time [Post-Chorus]
F#m F#mmaj7add9 F#m7 B We found his auntie’s holy water and refilled it
F#m
from the tap
F#mmaj7add9 F#m7 B "She’ll bless herself with good ole H2O!", he said A Oh god, we laughed and laughed [Verse]
E G#m Bsus2 Bsus4 Bsus2 We wrote our names in new cement beside the river C#m G#m Bsus2 Bsus4 Bsus2 We really thought that they would last for ever and ever Cadd9 G/B D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D But late one night when walking home Cadd9 G/B D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D I couldn’t find the names the place had overgrown [Chorus]
Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 Em7 I sit and watch the lights go out on my home my growing up town D Dsus4 D Cadd9 And I wonder what he’s doing now Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 Em7 And I will build a wicker man and put inside all those things D Dsus4 D Cadd9 That make me old before my time [Post-Chorus]
F#m F#mmaj7add9 F#m7 B F#m Born in a booming "instant potato" age a teeshirt full of youth F#mmaj7add9 F#m7 B Discovering sex and cigarettes and oh I know D But it was all true! [Chorus]
Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 I sit and watch the lights go out on my home
Em7
my growing up town
D Dsus4 D Cadd9 And I wonder what he’s doing now Am Cadd9 G Fadd9 And if I really have a call, I’d catch them
Em7
all as they fall
D Dsus4 D Cadd9 And say: Daddy’s home
