Mildenhall

	  		
C 
At fifteen we had to leave the States again 
                                             F 
Dad was stationed at an RAF base they called Mildenhall 
                C 
Black moss on a busted wall 
C 
The cobblestones made it hard to skate 
C 
I thought my flattop was so new wave 
         F                  C 
Until it melted away in the Suffolk rain 
          G7                  C 
Well god damn, you miss the USA 

F                                  C 
   Then a kid in class passed me a tape 
F                                C    G7 
   An invitation, not the hand of fate 

C 
I guess my shoes said I might relate 
                                                 F 
Somehow she knew I'd like to stay up waiting with her in the cold 
                    C 
For cheap beer and rock 'n' roll 
          G7                           C 
Which in time put lots of things in my mind 

F                             C 
   A kid in class passed me a tape 
F                                       C    G7 
   We saw some bands down at the Corn Exchange 

C 
I wonder where my sister was that night 

Back at home under the tanning bed lights 
      F 
I can still see the glow 
                  C 
Strange rays from her window 
     G7                      C 
Each night, as I was skating home 
C 
Started messing with my dad's guitar 
C 
Taught me some chords just to start me off 
F                       C 
Whittling away on those rainy days 
           G7                         C 
And that's how we get to where we are now 

F                             C 
   A kid in class passed me a tape 
F                                       C    G7 
   A band called The Jesus and the Mary Chain 

C 
I started messing with my dad's guitar 

He taught me some chords just to start me off 
F                              C 
Whittling away on all of those rainy days 
           G7                         C 
And that's how we get to where we are now 
       G7                         F7 
That's how we get to where we are now
