Philadelphia chords – Spoonboy

 
Philadelphia
from I Love You, This is a Robbery by spoonboy
F  ->  G 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.
