    INTRO: G Am C G Am C G
    Am
     
    I never lived anywhere
    C
     
    I didn't mind leaving
    I never knew anyplace
    G
     
    I didn't want to go
    Am
     
    Short on the giving
    C
     
    Long on receiving
    G
     
    I never knew anything
    DCG
     
    I didn't want to know
    Am
     
    I liked the towns
    I liked the people
    C
     
    But the brown bugs in my bed
    G
     
    I could have done without
    Am
     
    I liked the taconite
    C
     
    Slate roofs and steeples
    G
     
    A few crucial details
    DC
     
    Of my whereabouts
    GAm
     
    Don't think you should hesitate
    CDC
     
    Nothing comes to those who wait
    GAm
     
    Once I heard a saint's complaint, he said
    CDGAm
     
    "Good things come to those who ain't"

    "Who ain't"
    INTERLUDE: D G Am C D G
    Am
     
    So I moved west
    C
     
    To where your weather comes from
    Or where your weather goes
    G
     
    When it's done with you
    Am
     
    I've got a place here
    I've got a family
    CG
     
    More to love, more to feel, more to do
    DCDG
     
    And more to lose
    Am
     
    So, I've got a taste
    C
     
    Of what I've been missing
    There's hardly anywhere
    G
     
    I really want to go
    Am
     
    There's more to give
    C
     
    More room to breath in
    G
     
    I hardly see anyone
    DCGCDC
     
    That I don't want to know
    GAm
     
    Don't think you should hesitate

    Nothing comes to those who wait
