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
