Whiskeytown - Jacksonville Skyline Songtext

B
Well the banks of the river run through my hometown
B E
Born on the dirt roads, and I scraped my knees
B
Well they paved the roads eventually
B E
With neon signs and car dealerships and diners
F# G#m E
The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends
F# G#m E F# B
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town
B
Well I moved away soon as I turned sixteen
B E

Figured I was old enough to go and work a job
B
Well I floated down main street pools of carlights
B E
Overcame me wishin' I was still back home
F# G#m E
The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends
F# G#m E F# B
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town
B
Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
B E
Seems like you're lucky if it ever changes red to green
B
I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness
B E
With 50 cent picture frames bought at a five and dime
F# G#m E
I ended up a soldier on the weekend
F# G#m E
Looking for a vacancy I wasn't able to find
F# G#m E
Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket
F# G#m E
Shoot it with my capgun just to make it
E F# B
Seem like stars
