Intro: F Fsus4 F C (2x)

   F 
If I went home tomorrow 
        C     
I would be obliged to borrow 
  Bb 
A thousand little things I do not need 

   F 
My folks, they know me well 
           C 
But surely they'd begin to tell 
  Bb 
I love them but their words I do not heed 

Gm         Bb           F            C 
I read the books then I burned their pages 
Dm        F               C 
Found the birds screaming in their cages 
Bb            Dm           F 
Where are the young voices of all ages? 
Dm      C               Dm 
I would die to hear them sing 

Bb F 

          F 
You don't have to go the lonely way 
        Gm 
That directs your heart with sorrow 
    Dm                           Bb F 
And leads your mind in disarray 
         F 
Don't pretend that you don't know 
Dm C         Bb 
25 years and nothing to show 

F Fsus4 F C x2 

F 
People from my town 
             C 
They stop to look me up and down 
    Bb 
And say how marvelous it must be 

     F        
They lament the lack of money 
           C 
And cackle about some sweet, young honey 
    Bb 
The one they're sure is chasing after me 

Gm             Bb            F        C 
Then I see the change come into their faces 
         Dm         F        C 
They say, 'I wish I knew such splendid places' 
   Bb        Dm               F 
But life's become a string of whiffs and traces 
Dm        C               Dm 
And in my head I hear them sing 


Bb F 

          F 
You don't have to go the lonely way 
        Gm 
That directs your heart with sorrow 
    Dm                           Bb F 
And leads your mind in disarray 
         F 
Don't pretend that you don't know 
Dm C         Bb 
25 years and nothing to show 

F Fsus4 F C x2

Dm Bb F C / 


Dm    C Bb    F    F   C     \ x6 
Don't believe it's crumbling / 

Dm C 
          Bb 
You don't have to go the lonely way 
        F           C     Dm C 
But you go there anyway 
          Bb                       C C C C    
You don't have to go the lonely way, whoa
