I love North Dakota cause you have never been there
and the days go on forever and the towns all look the same
and I can ride the back roads and I can walk the main streets
and show someone your picture but they would not know your name

Em C Dm C
This city is so gloomy I could stay in bed for hours
Em C Em C
maybe that's why I'm still lying here asking you for more
Em C Em C
and this never would have happened if you hadn't touched my elbow
Em C Em C
in that steamy crowded car heading down the western shore

And you take me to pieces your eye sees my favorite me
and I don't know your word for it but you know what I mean
cause there's nothing I like better than to watch you flirting with the waitress
Em C Em C - G/B -
that's the most inspiring thing that I have ever seen


Asus C Asus C Em - C - Em - C
And those times when you fight it it's just the way I like it
Asus C Asus C Em - C - Em - C
And I wonder what I'm choosing I wonder what I'm losing

Cause at four o'clock this morning you told me the story
of a friend who couldn't stomach all the love that came from you
and oh the straight up deep hurt of you
and I don't think that I can handle anything so true
And that's why I am leaving and that's why I won't call you
I am getting in the taxi and I'm heading for the plane
but I still can feel you breathing I still can hear your fingers play
and I still can see you standing in the window pane

Asus C Am C Em - C - Em - C
And I'm watching your goodbye and I'm trying to cry
Asus C Asus E(maj) - G - E - G - E - G - E - A - G
Guess I'm not built for this load guess it's back to the road

E G E G
So now Delaware is tollbooths Virginia is twilight
E G E A - G
and Michigan's beef jerky in a small boy's hand
E G E G
and Arkansas' a skinny cop Oregon is purple hands
E G E A - G
and Flagstaff Arizona is delirium at night

And I love North Dakota cause you have never been there
and the days go on for hours and the towns all look the same
and I can ride the back roads and I can walk the main streets
and I could show everyone your picture but they would not know your name
I love, I love, I love
North Dakota
