[Verse 1]
          G  
It was a island wedding

For two love striken faces
           Bm           D           G            
Trick are wasting and hearts were full
        G 
These ghosts on the walls

just got in pathways
               Bm            D       G 
The line they outside, and down to help
                   G 
There was an old weeping willow

It stood where the path opened  
          Bm             D         G 
It had a rope swing and wide wood bench
          G 
We would sit there for ages
While our parents all drank like sailors
            Bm          D    G
Wondering where these stars went

[Chorus]
A            
..How did I get so far?
                        Bm      D        G     
How did I get so far, running away from you?
A
..How did I get so caught up?
                        Bm        D         G 
How did I get so lost, trying to hide from you?

From my shadow
 
[Verse 2]
           G 
We’d use pocket knives to carve weapons

Adventure out into the woods
                 Bm              D        G 
And stretch for miles from the backyard fence
            G      
Then we forget we fight

Imaginary beings
              Bm        D       G 
Like all the ones we dream at night
[Chorus]
A            
..How did I get so far?
                        Bm      D        G     
How did I get so far, running away from you?
A
..How did I get so caught up?
                        Bm        D         G 
How did I get so lost, trying to hide from you?
         
From my childhood, yeah

[Outro]
                     D 
Yeah, I could still taste, Sweet Caledonia

sweet caledonia
Bm      A    D
sweet caledonia
 G 
(Oh, oh, I’m fading)
Bm      A    D    G
sweet caledonia....
Bm      A    D
sweet caledonia
G                            A
..You say when it start to glow
    Bm               F#m       G     
How far the little things they go
                             Bm      A  D   G
Yeah, I could still taste, Sweet Caledonia.....
                 A  
like a breaking road
      Bm            F#m   G 
It’s hard to ever really know
                                     D 
But I’ll stay with you when you’re older
