* = one strum

  Am
I wait, on the Emerald Isle
    F                     C
For you to come and rescue me
           Dm
From every step I can't take
F
Feet don't you ever break
Am              G
Drag me over that line

    Am
Halfway, around the medicine ball    
   F                   C
Is far enough to blow me back
               Dm
Like you broke the bank on the ticket
      F
Worth every damn nickel
       Am            G
Well you got me, that time

                  F             C
'Cause I've been on the road one day too long
             F                  C
Can't hear the record for another sad song
              F                 C
Look at all these faces can't all be wrong
               G
That's a lot of my heart out there

      Am
Did you fly, a million miles
    F                      C
For every single one that I ran
           Dm
I don't know which of us is crazier
F
Oh sweet baby
         Am            G
That's the madness, I desire

            Am
And there's a twinkle, in the clifted sky
     F               C
Been there forever
             Dm
And lights the way for the waters
    F
The jackals and the lovers
      Am            G
And the broken street lights

                  F             C
'Cause I've been on the road one day too long
             F                  C
Can't hear the record for another sad song
              F                 C
Look at all these faces can't all be wrong
               G
That's a lot of my heart out there

              F                              C
So do we keep running through the motions baby
           F                     C
Knowing that someday is gonna come maybe
                    F                     C
When you can't keep your pretty mouth from saying
           G
I wanna go home

Am   F    C    Dm    F    Am    G (x2)

  Am *                          F *                   C *
I wait, on the emerald isle for you to come and rescue me
