                    Am
See I've been here for 28 years.

Pounding sweat beneath these wheels.

We tattooed lines beneath our skin.

No surrender, my Bobby Jean.

We've been burned by all our fears.
                  Em
Just from growing up around here.
                       F
Our father's factories marked our cars.

While Eden burned against the stars.

              C
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em
I can't take no more regret.
                F
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                  C                       G
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 C
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
                F
We're going to wash these sins away.
                C                              G
Or else we won't come back again.

You know I had these ballroom dreams.

That, as a child, came to me.

I was a boy in Grandma's arms.

                     C                         G
A mother's pride and a wounded heart.
                      Am
And I was full with fiery wonder.
                    Em
You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls.
                    F                           C
You were the only one who understood me then
                                 G
and the only one who will.

Bridge:

          Am          G        F          C
And now I drive the 101 on the California night.
         Am               G                  F             C
And I'm amazed at all the stars beneath that old Hollywood sign.
       Am                 G              F              C
And we waltz, ballet up a boulevard to a place we never kept
        Am               G               F           C                    G
And I'm not sure if we belong here, if I ever really left, or if I can go home

Meet me by the river's edge.
