D A7
St. Valentine, / I got leavin’ on my mind
A7 D
There’s no reason good ‘nough to stay in this town / When my baby’s miles away.

D^7 G^7
The sound of airplanes in the sky / Roaring louder than ever before
A7 D
Like the calling of the wild / Like a knockin’ at your door

D7 ( G E- )
Chocolate hearts are turning soft / Bodega roses bloom in cellophane
A7 B7
The air is cold, but winter’s old / When the birds fly North I’ll do the same

E- A7
Cause the world turns to the right / Balancing darkness and light
( E- A7 ) D
I’ve been one sided for so long / A see-saw ride I’m getting off

D A7
St. Valentine, / I got leavin’ on my mind
A7 D
There’s no reason good ‘nough to stay in this town / When my baby’s miles away.

D^7 G^7
Morning truckers, headlights on / Before the a.m. traffic rage
A7 D
Sunrise glare across the windshield / Like blind love leading the way

D7 ( G E- )
As far as the eye can see / Slick city women perfumed and dressed up tight
A7 B7
A small town boy could do some damage / Squeezing virtues into vice

E- A7
But a thousand rowdy nights / Ain’t worth one minute by her side
( E- A7 ) D
I’ve been one sided for so long / A see-saw ride I’m getting off.
