                         Am                      D 
You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire 
                        G                    C 
You were rolling out Easy Bake Ovens and tires 
                Am                        D 
Another whole day on the Bucks County plain 
                G 
Clouds rolling in, it's feeling like rain 
                Cm                       F 
Back in the yards and the woods by the pool 
                     Bb                          Eb 
The leaves were on fire when I came home from school 
              Cm                   F 
Singing a song that I wrote in myself 
             Bb 
Singing that I could be something else 

                        Ebm                     G# 
You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire 
                          C#                  F# 
I was sitting there watching on half-buried tires 
                   Ebm                     G# 
Scratching on sidewalks with fingers and stone 
             C# 
Waiting for time, feeling alone 
            F#m                    B 
Taking out pins in the cushions inside 
                   E                     A 
The rain falling down on the telephone wire 
          F#m          B      E     
Falling farther and farther away 


                Am                   D 
Those were the days of the model airplanes 
               G                      C 
Shooting up rockets for neighborhood fame 
             Am                        D 
You on the ground, the remote in your hand 
                  G                    
I was sinking on down, my feet in the sand 
                    Cm           F 
The rock and roll babysitter's tales 
                    Bb                      Eb                     
Of nights with the boys running off of the rails 
                         Cm                 F 
They'd spend the whole night on abandoned farms 
        Bb 
Burning up in each other's arms 

                        Ebm                     G# 
You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire 
                        C#                 F# 
You were setting those Easy Bake Ovens on fire 
                  Ebm                        G# 
I was carving my name on a chalkboard with nails 
                C# 
Waiting for somebody else to be there 
             F#m            B 
Outside, the dim suburban homes 
                            E                            A 
With their lawns full of ashtrays and their buckets of phones 
              F#m        B         E 
Ringing off mothers in houses all day 

 Am                     D 
Back then we had to be cool 
       G                   C 
But nobody taught me the rules 
Am                       D 
So I just wrote it all down 
          G 
On the inside of my fast food paperboard crown 
         Cm                           F 
Riding bikes before I learned about brakes 
              Bb                     Eb 
Around and around those cul-de-sac lanes 
                   Cm                      F 
The teens rolling by in their giant green cars 
               Bb 
Driving like rain, they were kissing like stars 

                        Ebm                     G# 
You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire 
                             C#              F# 
You were building those Tinkertoy castle empires 
                Ebm                   G# 
Melting your crayons over tables of flame 
                C# 
I was feeling alone, I was feeling insane 
             F#m                  B 
Dad took a picture on August the ninth 
                   E                 A 
Of us with the newspaper and the headline 
          F#m     B      E Esus E 
'Ford Steps Up; Nixon Resigns'
