Note: Jon plays a little figure in certain
   portions of the song alternating between
   A and Asus2 and D and Dsus2.  For the
   purpose of this tab I will mark them
   as A* and D* respectively.  Just listen
   and you will figure it out.



Intro:
A*    D*    A*    D*

Verse 1:
A*                  D*    
oil tankers and the national guard
A*                       C#7
I came to meet you but I camped out in your yard
D            E
why turn the key
D                       E
there's so much here to see
      D      A      E    D/F#    A
these are my memories


Chorus 1:
   E        D/F#                F#m
of precious places and precious things
          Em          Bm
that were meaningless before
     Bb        A*    D*    A*    D*
We'd seen them together


Verse 2:
A*         D*    
Old hinges squeaking in the rain
A*                C#7
That hotel by the highway where we stayed
D                       E
There's something every hour
D                    E
Who needs the Eiffel tower
     D         A      E    D/F#    A
When we've got memories

We'd seen them together


Bridge:
E            C#m                 D
The pen, the car, the paint, the peel
             Bm                E
The moon and star, the message clear
        C#m                D
Liberty raised her hand to us
         Bm      F
As if to say its ok
     D/F#        A      E    D/F#    
Live today, live today

Verse 3:
A*                    D*    
I said don't leave me don't break the tie
A*                  C#7
Then I left you and time went rolling by
D                       E
Now here's what I can't stand
D                 E
I know that every landmark
D        A      E    D/F#    A
Triggers memories


Chorus 3:
   E      D/F#             F#m
Of stupid places and silly things

We'd seen them together
Em          Bm
Meaningless before
     Bb        F#m
We'd seen them together
          Em          Bm
They were meaningless before

We'd seen them together

A*    D*    A*    C    G
