Verse 1CMary, this station is playing every sad song AmI remember like we were alive CI heard and sung them all from inside of these walls AmIn a prison cell, where we spent those nights CAnd they burned up the diner where I always used to find her AmLicking young boys blood from her claws CAnd I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew AmHer hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb
PrechorusGuitar 1 F My heart's like a Gwound EHave you seen my handBs? C♯m Just look at 'em shakeB E And the song just keeps on repeaBtingC♯m Drop the needle agaBin E And I dance with your ghosBt C♯m but that ain't the wayB A AI can't move on and I can't stay the sBame And all my friends say
ChorusC♯mHeeeeyyyAy E BTurn the record over C♯mHeeeyyAyyy E I'lBl see you on the flip side EThere you gBo and tuC♯mrn the key and eAngine over ELet her Bgo LeC♯mt somebody elAse lay at her feet Slow it down here
Am G F C GOn President Street, you'll find the sisters praying over my city's heart While Union Avenue turns to its disciple who feels the pressure heat coming on hard
C G6sus4 Am F F GAnd if all was well and your heart could find the words Would we be for better baby, would we be for worse? And if there was a way to navigate your seas And if tonight, my true love... Faster here CI was crawling around in my head in the haze of aAm trance. Rico said, C"I'ma turn you onto a soundAm, cool out your head. F This is the sound from Camden Gtown." CAnd then I heard it like a shot through my skull to my brain, IAm felt my fingertips tingle and it started to rain, WChen the walls of my bedroom were tremblin' around me, TAmhis ramshackle voice over attack of a bluesbeat, TFellin' me he's only looking for Gfun. AmThis was the sound of the Gvery last gang in towFn.
ChorusAs heard by my Cwild young heart, like directions on a Fcold dark night, Sayin', C'Let it out... FYou're doin' all right.' And I heard it in his Cchain gang soul. It wasn't just the Fsame sad song. Saying, C'Let it out, you're doing all right.F' And I'm doing all Emright, are you doin' alFl right? G C Play at a moderate pace now Well, I Amwonder which song they're gonna Eplay when we go. I hope it's Amsomething quiet and minor and peaceful and sF7Mlow. C When we Amfloat out into the ether, into the EEverlasting Arms, I hope wAme don't hear Marley's chains we forged in F7Mlife. C See these Amchains I been F7MhearinCg now for mCost of my lGife, These Amchains I been F7MhearinCg now for mCost of my lGife. Did you hear the C'59 Sound coming through on F7MgrandmCama's radio?
