prechorus lyrics:

you don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah and you said

you don't know me, you don't wear my chains...  oh yeah


verse again:
essential and appealed, carry all your thoughts across 
an open field,
when flowers gaze at you...they're not the only ones who cry
when they see you
you said...


Prechorus again:
you don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah and you said
you don't know me, you don't wear my chains... oh yeah

chorus lyrics:
                            C
she said I think I'll go to Boston...
                         Em
I think I'll start a new life,
                      F                           G
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I'll get out of California, I'm tired of the weather,
I think I'll get a lover and fly em out to Spain...
I think I'll go to Boston, 
I think that I'm just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind...
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of the sunset,
I hear it's nice in the Summer, some snow would be nice...



Prechorus again, but use C Em F and G chord voicings from verse:

you don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah



Final line using chorus chords: on the eigth note all downstrokes
C        Em                          F              
      Boston...where no one knows my name... 
G                           C         
      where no one knows my name....  
Em                          F
