intro   Gm      Eb  Cm  [x4]    

              Gm
verse   You stand in the doorway
            Eb            Cm
        A block up the street
         F
        Ringing the doorbell
                 Ab         Cm
        There’s tapping of feet
         Gm          Dm/F
        High yellow hair
               Eb         Ab
        And a worn brown suit...
        Gm           Dm/F
        Enter, and break the news
        
instr   Gm      Eb  Cm  x2
        
             Gm
verse   Now tell me the story
           Eb          Cm
        I give it the time
         F
        No need to worry
        Ab            Cm
        Everything’s fine
              Gm        Dm/F
        I’ll take you away
                  Eb            Ab
        From the name-calling scene
         Gm               Dm/F
        Sure... you can bring your magazine
               
         Gm                       Eb        Cm
chorus  Cold and windblown on the old bandstand
        F                  Ab      Cm
        You and I walking hand in hand
          Gm    Dm/F
        A neon-glow shining
         Eb     Cm
        Down on us
         Gm
        Don’t wait up for us
         Dm/F
        Don’t wait up for us
        
instr   Gm      Eb  Cm  [x2]
        
             Gm
verse   Now tell me the story
              Eb          Cm
        I’ll give it the time
             F
        When you stop looking
          Ab           Cm
        Then you will find
              Gm      Dm/F
        I’ll take you away
                   Eb            Ab
        From this name-calling scene
       Gm      Dm/F
        Just bring your magazine
        
chorus  Cold and windblown...
        
chorus  Cold and windblown...      
               
coda    Eb      Dm       
         Eb
        Don’t wait up for us
         Dm
        Don’t wait up for us       
        Gm      Dm/F     [repeat and fade]
