The House On Auburn Street.
D G/D D7 C/D Am
The house on Auburn Street is burning to the ground,
D G/D D G/D
Fire trucks on the lawn and a crowd is gathered round,
G C Dm7 Em Emaj7
An apparition in a small suburban town,
D G/D D
The house on Auburn Street is burning to the ground.
D G/D D C/D Am7 C
Birthdays and barbecues, come on you sleepy head,
D C/D D7 C/D
He watched the evening news while she put us both to bed,
G C Am Em7 F C F6
Drowsing in our room, and drifting in the dark,
D C/D D6 D Edim7/D
In the house on Auburn Street waiting for our lives to start.
You were the older one and I never saw you cry,
D C/D D
Always the bolder one; nothing that you wouldn’t try,
F A Dm Dm7 E
I found you on the roof shooting sparks into your veins,
D G6 D C/D D
And staring vacantly across the green suburban plains.
There were rescue missions, ultimatums and promises of love,
C/D D6 D
They did the best they could, oh but it was never quite enough,
Oh Oh Oh Oh.
D C/D Am C/D
The sparks are flying now like fireworks in July,
The dogs are barking now and the kids are hypnotized,
G C Em F Fmaj7
And I should be crying now, but I’m laughing at the joke,
D D7 C/D D
Cause the house on Auburn Street is going up in smoke,
D G6 D C/D G/D D
The house on Auburn Street is going up in smoke.
