Artist: Cross Canadian Ragweed
Song: 17
Album: Purple

Sirens wail and a flashing light
G                                C                        
Nothing better to do on a Tuesday night
But give me hell
Where ya headed, what are you out for
G                                   C
Don't see much of you 'round here anymore
I guess it's just as well
D                  C
Once upon a time you had it all
D                  C
You let everybody down
D                C                    G
You're always seventeen in your home town.

D                   C                      G
Running from your folks, running from the law
D              C                      G                     D
Running from love, running from your fears, running from it all
C             D
You keep on running, boy
        G           G/F#     Em
You'll run yourself in the ground
D                C                G
You're always seventeen in your hometown

Her porch swing still looks the same
She probably won't even remember my name
Just like she didn't back then
Is she married, is she doing fine
Does she known about all the nights I laid awake cryin'
Just to know her hand
The door opens and I run away
Just like the same old clown
You're always seventeen in your hometown

(Repeat Chorus)

Nobody is gonna miss me
No tears will fall, no one's gonna weep
When I hit that road
My boots are broken, my brain is sore
From keeping up with their little world
I've got a heavy load
Gonna leave 'em all just like before
I'm big city bound
You're always seventeen in your hometown

(Repeat Chorus)

At the end of the chorus the C and D chords are reversed I think is should be "(C)You're always seven(D)teen in your home(G)town"
