Standard Tuning 
 
Capo on the 4th fret 



    Intro:    C    G    D    C    x 3    C    G    D 

              E    A    x 4 


E                A 
 I went back to Boston 
E                           A 
 Back to the city you were lost in 
E                    A 
 I went back to the place 
                            E    A 
 Without your face in the stone 

E                  A 
 Walked around Harvard Square 
      E                 A 
 The runaway kids are still hanging out there 
                 E   
 And I took the red line 
  A                             E      A 
 All the way across the River Charles 


  C                   G 
 Some things try and try 
           D                   C 
 But they never fly, and they never fly 
      C                 G 
 You reach up from the waves 
                       D    C          E    A    E    A 
 And find that you're only waving goodbye 


E                 A 
 Went walking in Boston 
E                A 
 Over a bridge I used to walk on 
        E 
 I was looking for my heart 
            A                      E    A 
 That I'd flung into that sea of stone 


         E                    A 
 Boston said, you need not apply 
E                     A 
 For your license to fly 
             E                       A 
 Hey, young lady, don't look so surprised 
                       E     A 
 You know you're not alone 


  C                   G 
 Some things try and try 
           D                   C 
 But they never fly, and they never fly 
      C                 G 
 You reach up from the waves 
                       D    C          E    A    E    A 
 And find that you're only waving goodbye 


 C    G    D    C    C    G    D    (C) 


E                (A) 
 It was Memorial Day 
E                    (A) 
 I went to where you lay 
                          E 
 There were thousands of people 
           (A)                  E    (A) 
 Just like you in a giant graveyard 

E                 A 
 You came all of that way 
                  E                  A   
 Looking for the sky, you got a slap in the face 
            E                A 
 You had a desperate need to be loved 
                            E 
 You just got put in that place 
                   A           
 You better know your place, boy 


  C                   G 
 Some things try and try 
           D                   C 
 But they never fly, and they never fly 
      C                 G 
 You reach up from the waves 
                       D    C          E    A    E    A 
 And find that you're only waving goodbye 
  E    A 
 Only waving 
        E     A 
 You're only waving 
        E     A 
 You're only waving 
        E     A          C      G      D      C      C      G      D      (C) 
 You're only waving goodbye
