Philadelphia

	  		

A 
two hours north of the nation's capital,  
          E 
i took a break from what would be my final days  
                                      Bm 
in a prison of my own making to see a friend who had said,  
                       D 
"hey come on over," a favorite band,  
        E 
and an ex-lover's ex-lover.  
     A 
and ryan said that he liked my company,  
         E 
so i didn't leave that night  
and stuck around for his birthday.  
    Bm 
we rode out to the tops of the oil cans,  
     D                     E 
to a pool in the woods and i jumped in...  

A -> E -> D -> F 

             A 
perpetually lost and so                                       
i made my way across the zip codes,  
E 
sold tapes to the smaller distros,  
learned cliches of the drifter's ethos. 
Bm  
learned addiction to new faces:  
D                          E 
the pros and cons of being place-less. 
                      A  
and my friends seemed stuck.  
but i didn't know what to say,  
     E 
so i addressed the Chorus  
and asked each voice individually.  
                   Bm 
they all said "i'm doing this for my parents,  
i wish i had other choices.  
         D 
it's not really what i want,  
            E 
but i can't stand to be a disapointment."  

A -> E -> D -> F 

      A# 
and i wanted to say how at the end of the day  
            F 
you're just accountable to your memories.  
           Cm                             F 
and if you can't lament what might have been...  
Cm                          F 
you'll never be a disapointment.  
      A# 
but i couldn't find the words somehow,  
wrote down the names of the college towns,  
and waved out the window  
                              F      D#   F  D# 
as the dots on the map passed by.  

    B 
and ryan said that he liked my company, 
             F#  
and though i know i never told him,  
well it really meant a lot to me,  
      C#m 
and i said i'd make a point to always stop on by.  
      E                        F# 
and i know that i don't, but i think about it every time  
         B        F#           E     G    
that the greyhound glides past philadelphia. 
             B          F#        E    G  
and then the greyhound cries for philadelphia.
