G                C/G                C/B
Teardrop windows cryin' in the sky
Am                            D7
He is all alone and wonderin' why
G                C/G                C/B
Ivory white but feelin' kind of blue
Am                                      D7
Cause theres no one there to share the view

C           C/B       Am
There's too many vacancies
C                G        D
He's been feelin' oh so empty
C              C/B           D
When the sun sets over the sound
                 G
He just goes to sleep

[He seems to hammer on the 2nd fret on the D string when playing the G chord]

G                      C/G                 C/B
Built in boast as the tallest on the coast
Am                            D7
He was once the city's only toast
G                C/G                      C/B
In old postcards was positioned as a star
Am                              D7
He was looked up to with fond regard

C           C/B       Am
But in nineteen sixty two 
C                G        D
The needle made it's big debut
C     C/B          D
And everybody forgot
          G
What it outgrew

G/F#

Em                   
He wonders where the workers are 
C                        G     G/F#
Who once filled every floor
Em              EmM7
The elevators operate
C                 D    D/C  D/B  D/A 
But don't much anymore
D    D/C  D/B  D/A
Anymore
D    D/C  D/B  D/A
Anymore

D    D/C  D/B  D/A

D    D/C  D/B  D/A

G                C/G           C/B
Teardrop windows cryin' in the sky
Am                                  D7
How the years have quickly past her by
G                C/G                C/B
Gleaming white 'gainst the deepest baby blue
Am                            D7
He is lonely just like me and you

C           C/B       Am
There's too many vacancies
C                G        D
He's been feelin' oh so empty
C              C/B           D
When the sun sets over the sound
                 G
He just goes to sleep

C           C/B       Am
There's too many vacancies
C                G        D
He's been feelin' oh so empty
C              C/B           D
And when the maids they turn out the lights
                 G
He just goes to sleep
