Lights

by Chris Rubeo

 

AM     bm     c#m     D7    dm

AM     bm     c#m     E7     E7

 

AM                 c#m                       f#m                     AM

So, and now, untied to catch the eyes of strangers walking past me

AM                    c#m                f#m                         AM

Beacons on the way away I’m glad to’ve come but cannot stay

       AM                    c#m            DM                            AM

And some nights I’m so young I remember where I’m coming from

           DM           AM          (b)         (c#)  

As the miles are slipping away       (hey, hey)

 

 DM      EM     c#m     f#m

Don’t   go      that     way   

                         c#m     f#m

or you’re gonna go this alone

DM       EM      c#m       f#m

She     says    take me home

 

AM      dm      AM      EM

 

AM                          c#m                         f#m                     AM

Another drink then watch the lightning words ignite the pastured ink

       AM                           c#m                    f#m                   AM

Like scattering leaves or shaping sands or holding out our empty hands

                 AM                      c#m            DM                       AM

And in the streets there are lights on so we can see what lies beyond

           DM           AM         (b)      (c#)

As the miles are slipping away  (hey, hey)

  

DM      EM     c#m     f#m

Don’t   go      that     way

                         c#m     f#m

or you’re gonna go this alone

DM       EM       c#m      f#m

She     says    take me home

 

AM      dm      AM      EM

AM      bm      c#m      D7  dm

AM      bm      c#m      D7  dm

AM      bm      c#m      D7  dm

AM      bm      c#m      E7  E7

AM      c#m    (f#m or D7) AM

AM      c#m    f#m      AM

Lyrics

So, and now, untied to catch the eyes of strangers walking past me

Beacons on the way away

I’m glad to’ve come but cannot stay

And some nights I’m so young

I remember where I’m coming from

As the miles are slipping away

 

(hey, hey)

 

Don’t go that way

Or you’re gonna go this alone

She says take me home

 

Another drink then watch the lightning words ignite the pastured ink

Like scattering leaves or shaping sands or holding out our empty hands

And in the streets there are lights on

So we can see what lies beyond

As the miles are slipping away

 

(hey, hey)

 

Don’t go that way

or you’re gonna go this alone

She says take me home
