[intro]
A    D
A    D

A                     D
We'd come seven hours down
A                               D
Took the blue line to see where we hopped out
A                     D
And I was only joking,  and I was only joking
A                     D
And I was only trying to get a laugh

A                                         D
You say this was the furthest that we had come
A                         D
Travel so far to watch it fall, undone
A                         D
And I had lost my token      You were looking bent and broken
A                         D
Staring sideways with the rain coming down

Bm            E
But I am so enthralled
      A             D
O New England la da dum da
      A             D
O New England la da dum da

A                                  D
This here is the fable of a failed attempt
A                              D
Find new life in a love in the seat of its origin
A
From Long to Coney Island
D
From mid to west to upper Highland
A                       D
And all I got is a silk full colored souvenier

Bm                     E
The new millennium New York
               A             D
and all of New England la da dum da
      A             D
O New England la da dum da

      Bm 
O New England
                       C# D
In the face of your em - pire
                             C#     Bm
I think I'd rather just wait in the car
                       C# D
And return to the turn -  pike
                         E
Watching the New England skyline
          A
sinking below
          D
sinking below

A                     D
We'd come seven hours down
(We'd come seven hours down)
