song:  jacksonville skyline
album:  Pneumonia

Well the banks of the river went through my hometown
G                                           C
Born on the dirt roads, and I scraped my knees
Well they packed the roads eventually
G                                       C
With neon signs and car dealerships and diners


    D                 Em          C
The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends
  D              Em       C      D       G
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

Verses 2&3:

I moved away soon as I turned sixteen
Figured I was old enough to go and work a job
Well I flooded down mainstreet pools of carlights
Overcame me wishin' I was still back home

Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
Seems like your lucky if it ever changes red to green
I was born in abundance of inherited sadness
With a 50 cent picture frame bought at a five and dime

Final chorus(chords same as the first):

I ended up a soldier on the weekend
Looking for a vacancy I wasn't able to find
Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket
I shoot it with my capgun just to make it
seem like stars
