intro and verse : C C Em Em Am Am x2 F F C C F F G G


verse lyrics:
C C Em Em Am Am F F C C F F G G
in the light of the sun..... is there anyone? oh it has begun...
C C Em Em Am Am F F C C
oh dear you look so lost.... eyes are red and tears are shed,
F F G G
this world you must've crossed...you said...


Prechorus: C C Em Em F F G G (two measures of each)
C C Em Em F F G G whichever you like best


prechorus lyrics:
C C Em Em F F G G
you don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah and you said
C C Em Em F F G G
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:
C C Em Em F F G G

chorus lyrics:
C C
she said I think I'll go to Boston...
Em Em
I think I'll start a new life,
F F G 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 C Em Em F F and G G chord voicings from verse:

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



Final line using chorus chords:
C C Em Em F F
Boston...where no one knows my name...
G G C C
where no one knows my name....
Em Em F F
where no one knows my name....

G G (slow down) C C (slow strum)
where no one knows my name
