Another song tuned down and in Drop D - I am tabbing it as 
close as I can in standard tuning




          G            C       C/B    D
There's a few too many years on this hotel
    G            C      C/B     D
She used to be a beauty, you can tell
    Em                                 D   
The lights down in the lobby they don't shine
          Em                        D
They just flicker while the elevator whines


And the couple in the corner of the bar 
Have traveled light and clearly traveled far
She's got nothing left to learn about his heart
They're sitting there a thousand miles apart


Chorus 1:
Am                          D
Baby let's not ever get that way
     Am                          D
I'll say whatever words I need to say 
     G                   C     C/B      D
I'll throw rocks at your window from the street
          G                  C       C/B    D
And we'll call ourselves the flagship of the fleet


There's a lady shining shoes up by the door
and cowboy boots for seven dollars more
And I remember how you loved to see them shine 
So I run upstairs and get a pair of mine 

And there's a painting on the wall beside the bed 
The watercolor sky at Hilton Head 
Then I see you in that summer when we met 
And that boy you left in tears in his Corvette 

Chorus 2:
Baby let's not ever get that way
I'll drive you to the ocean every day
We'll stay up in the presidential suite
And call ourselves the flagship of the fleet


Mmmmm, Mmm, Mmmm, mmm
Mmmmm, Mmm, Mmmm, mmm
Mmmmm, Mmm, Mmmm, mmmmmm


You gotta try and keep yourself naive 
In spite of all the evidence believed 
And volunteer to lose touch with the world
And focus on one solitary girl 


Chorus 3:
Baby let's not live to see it fade
I'll cancel all the plans I've ever made 
I'll drive and you can ride in the back seat 
And we'll call ourselves the flagship of the fleet
