Anchorage


by Michelle Shocked
I took the time to write to my old friend
I walked across the burning bridge
I mailed my letter off to Dallas, but
Her reply came from Anchorage, Alaska

G - D/F# - / C - D - //  (repeat throughout - except bridge)

She said Hey girl it's about time you wrote
It's been over two years now my old friend
Take me back to the days of the foreign telegrams
And the all night rock 'n rollin' hey Chel
We was wild then

C:	Hey Chel you know it's kinda funny
Texas always seems so big
But you know you're in the largest state in the union
When you're anchored down in Anchorage

Hey girl I think the last time I saw you
Was on me and Leroy's wedding day
What was the name of that love song you played
I forgot how it goes, I don't recall how it goes

B:	( C - C/B - / Am - G < / x2 / C - C/B - / Am - - - //)

Anchorage, anchored down in Anchorage
Anchorage, anchored down in Anchorage
+	Leroy got a better job so we moved
Kevin lost a tooth, he's starting school
I got a brand new eight-month-old baby girl
I sound like a housewife
I think I'm a housewife

Hey girl what's it like to be in New York
New York City, imagine that, tell me
What's it like to be a skateboard punk rocker
Leroy says send a picture
Leroy says hello
Leroy says keep on rocking girl
Yeh keep on rocking

C:	Hey Chel you know it's kinda funny
Texas always seems so big
But you know you're in the largest state in the union
When you're anchored down in Anchorage
