Allentown chords
Billy Joel

C D G 3x

Em         G              Em   G
Well we're living here in Allentown
            C               D         G
And they're closing all the factories down
       Em                A       D
Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
F           Em
Filling out forms
A           D
Standing in line.

         G                  Em           D
Well our fathers fought the Second World War
            C               D      G
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
        Em             A D  A
Met our mothers at the USO
A             D  
Asked them to dance
A                D
Danced with them slow

          G              Em   D
And we're living here in Allentown.
        F                G      C
But the restlessness was handed down
         Em           C       G                    D         Em D
And it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

C D G  C D G

           G               Em   D
Well we're waiting here in Allentown
        C               D     G
For the Pennsylvania we never found
        Em           A        D
For the promises our teachers gave
A            Em
If we worked hard
A       D
If we behaved.

G                  Em
So the graduations hang on the wall
         C            D            G
But they never really helped us at all
        Em              A        D
No they never taught us what was real
A       D
Iron or coke,
A        D
Chromium steel.

          G               Em   D
And we're waiting here in Allentown.
            F             G             C
But they've taken all the coal from the ground
        Em           C        G                  D Em D
And the union people crawled awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

C D G

F                 G           Bb
Every child had a pretty good shot
F                  G                    Bb
To get at least as far as their old man got.
F                            G           Bb
If something happened on the way to that place
F                           G      Bb
They threw an American flag in our face, oh oh oh.

C D G

G                       Em   D
Well I'm living here in Allentown
C                       D        G
And it's hard to keep a good man down.
      Em                    C       G               D   Em D
But I won't be getting up todaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy

C D G

GUITAR SOLO

         Em           C       G             D  Em D
And it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
          C              D    G
And we're living here in Allentown.
