  A5
I wait, on the Emerald Isle
    F5                     C5
For you to come and rescue me
           D5
From every step I can't take
F5
Feet don't you ever break
A5              G5
Drag me over that line

    A5
Halfway, around the medicine ball    
   F5                   C5
Is far enough to blow me back
               D5
Like you broke the bank on the ticket
      F5
Worth every damn nickel
       A5            G5
Well you got me, that time

                  F5             C5
'Cause I've been on the road one day too long
             F5                  C5
Can't hear the record for another sad song
              F5                 C5
Look at all these faces can't all be wrong
               G5
That's a lot of my heart out there

      A5
Did you fly, a million miles
    F5                      C5
For every single one that I ran
           D5
I don't know which of us is crazier
F5
Oh sweet baby
         A5            G5
That's the madness, I desire

            A5
And there's a twinkle, in the clifted sky
     F5               C5
Been there forever
             D5
And lights the way for the waters
    F5
The jackals and the lovers
      A5            G5
And the broken street lights

                  F5             C5
'Cause I've been on the road one day too long
             F5                  C5
Can't hear the record for another sad song
              F5                 C5
Look at all these faces can't all be wrong
               G5
That's a lot of my heart out there

              F5                              C5
So do we keep running through the motions baby
           F5                     C5
Knowing that someday is gonna come maybe
                    F5                     C5
When you can't keep your pretty mouth from saying
           G5
I wanna go home

A5   F5    C5    D5    F5    A5    G5 (x2)

  A5 *                          F5 *                   C5 *
I wait, on the emerald isle for you to come and rescue me
