Boston Chords
These are the basic cords to the Dresden Dolls song "Boston" off of No, Virginia.
They may be a bit more complicated on the piano, but these seem to work really
well as the guitar chords :)

This is standard tuning with a pretty simple rhythm (and easy to sing, too)


        C                                      B
All the cities in the world and so very little time, and
   C                                           B
So many different girls, all you have to do is find them
          C                          Em                 
There's a wealth of opportunity, you make your plans accordingly
  B
A pity that the pretty ones are usually more touristy
     C                                     B
Say, how'd you like to run away from these machines?
C                                         B
Everywhere the spies are printing out our dreams
      C                                   Em
Seven stops in seven different countries, seven page itineraries
B
Memories thick as bloody marys, Jesus Joseph bloody hell
      G                 C
Right now we're here in Boston
   G                  C
In love with downtown crossing
    G                               C
New York will still be there in the morning
     Em      D      C
Come back to bed my darling
      C                                      B
I had Julian and Steve, you had Juliette and Janet
              C                                               B
You wear your terror on your sleeve for all the men I haven't met... yet
      C                         Em
I had Oliver in Potstam you had Elanor in Amsterdam
B
We're keeping score so carefully we've lost the state we're in completely
C
Honestly your foot is out the door and I've got scores of offers
    B                                               C
Elsewhere and keep both feet planted firmly in the air
    C                        Em
And tomorrow you can totally erase me from your mind
           B
No really, everything is fine
              G                 C
Because right now we're here in Boston
   G                   C
In my apartment in the south end
   G                   C
Forget your friends in London
     Em      D      C
Come back to bed my darling
Em              D            C
You can put the details in a letter
    Em     D              C
The more embarrassing the better
      Em           D          C
Right now I can be happy if I choose to
  Em               D              C
I know that in the morning I will lose you
C                                       B
And maybe you'll be mad, and maybe I'll be gray
          C                          
Before we really understand or maybe it won't matter anyway
      B
We'll find out that your mom was right and you'll admit you're really gay
    C                             B
And maybe we'll wake up in a city far away
   C
Or maybe we'll make up, and buy a house
           B
And have a dozen kids who'll run away it doesn't matter anyway
      G                 C
Right now we're here in Boston
   G                              C
In Eden where you almost let your pants down
      G                                 C
Don't worry who these jokes will all be lost on
     Em      D      C
Come back to bed my darling
         Em             D                 C
There is nothing in the world that we can count on
     Em                D        C
Even that we will wake up is an assumption
      Em         D                 C
But I know for a fact that I loved someone
    Em          D                C
And for about a year he lived in Boston
   Em      D    C (let ring)
In Boston

About the artist behind Boston Chords:

The Dresden Dolls[1] are an American musical duo from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 2001, the group consists of Amanda Palmer (vocals, piano, harmonica, ukelele) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion, guitar, vocals). The two describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", a phrase invented by Palmer because she was "terrified" that the press would invent a name that "would involve the word gothic."[2] The Dresden Dolls are part of an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early 1990s.
