And I miss you

Intro: Am

Am
Step off that train
Em7
Walking down your street again
Am
Past your door
G
I guess you don't live there anymore
Am
It's years since you've been there
Em7                            Am
And now you've disappeared somewhere

Like out of space
G
You've found some better place

Am F
And I miss you
G                   Fm F
Like a desert's missed the rain
Am F
And I miss you
G                   Fm F
Like a desert's missed the rain

Am
Could you be dead?
Em7
Always were two steps ahead
Am
Of everyone
G
Walked behind while you run
Am
I look up by your house
Em7                           Am
And I can almost hear you shout down to me
G
Where I always used to be

Am F
And I miss you
G                   Fm F
Like a desert's missed the rain
Am F
And I miss you
G                   Fm F
Like a desert's missed the rain
Am
Back on the train
Em7
Asked why did I come again
Am
Can I confess
G
I've been hanging your old address
Am
Years have proved
Em7
To offer nothing since you moved
Am
Your long gone
G
And I can't move on

Am F
And I miss you
G                   Fm F
Like a desert's missed the rain
Am F
And I miss you
G                   Fm F
Like a desert's missed the rain

Step off the train

One Place

A
A summer evening; I walk past the window,
D
Baby's crying; Someone's cooking dinner;
A
There's laughter on the TV
Someone's learning the violin.
E
How at home, it heals
D
At times like this, I feel that...

CHORUS:
A                                   D
I would like to live like anybody else
E
In one place
A                                      D
And I could be happy and fulfilled
E
In one place

A
So I get the map out
And draw a line of where we've been
D
It goes thru sea and sky
A
Twenty-five planes this year
D
And it's only July...
E
This is not some Bible, like on the road
D
It's just a song about coming home
And whether...

CHORUS:
A                                   D
I would like to live like anybody else
E
In one place
A                                      D
And I could be happy and fulfilled
E
In one place
E
And you know that I have found
D
That I'm happiest weaving from town to town
E
And you know Bruce said
we should keep moving 'round
D                                                  A
Maybe we all get too tied down, I don't know
D
Hell, I don't know
A
I'm happy to be home (Still alive)
D
Happy to be home...
E
In the end, if you take care
D
You can be happy or unhappy anywhere

CHORUS:
A                                   D
And I think we maybe all rely too much
E
On one place
A                                    D
I know I never would deny the need
E
For one place

A
So I get the map out (get the map out)
D
Yeah I get the map out (get the map out)
A
C'mon, get the map out (get the map out)
D
Get the map out (get the map out)

25th Of December

Intro B  F#  E
B              F#
And I see forest Its the 25th of December
E
And my old man plays the piano for Christmas
B                   F#   E
He plays the piano for Christmas
B                  F#
And we're all there, all the Aunties and Uncles
E
And the angel on top of the tree
B                   F#  E
Up there on top of the tree
B           F#               E
And I never, no I never ever realised
B           F#               E
And I never, no I never ever realised

*same*
Have I enough time  Have I just enough time
To revisit, to go back, to return
To open my mouth again
And say something different this time
And I see bags of newspaper and a car in the carport
and you're a grown up and still unsure
And I'm thirty and I don't know nothing anymore
And I never, no I never ever realised
And I never, no I never ever realised

*solo*
C#m   E    B
C#m   E    B
C#m   E (hold)

*same as other verses*
And I'm sitting, sitting at the top of the stairs
And you're crying out by the towpath but the river
With all the swans and people walking by
And all of a sudden I'm struck with an urge to
Unlock a door with a key thats too big for my hands
and I drop it and it falls at your feet
Come on, come on its there at your feet
B           F#               E
And I never, no I never ever realised
E
Come on, come on its there at your feet
B           F#
And I never, no I never ever realised
E
Come on, come on its there at your feet
