Birdy (orig. by Postal Service) - The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

- No Capo -

Intro:
C - F - Am -Am (Repeat 3x)

C       F     Am   Am
 Smeared black ink
C     F            Am                  
 Your face is ashen and I'm barely listening
C   F       Am
 To last demands
C                   F
 I'm staring at the asphalt wondering
Am                      Am
 What's buried underneath


 Am    F G7 G7
 Where I am
 Am    F G7 G7
 Where I am


      C    F  Am    Am
 I'll wear my badge
C                     F                 Am
 A vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
C   F                Am
  That tells your new  friends
C       F           
 I am a visitor here
Am
 I am not permanent
C        F    Am
 And the only thing
C    F      Am
 Keeping me dry is


Am       F      G7             G7
Where    I      am            (In this gaudy apartment complex)
   [You seem so out of context]

Am          F       G7           G7
Where       I       am           (Explaining that I am just visiting)
   [A stranger with your door key]

Am          F      G7       G7
Where       I      am      (why I was the one worth leaving)
   [And I am finally seeing]
 F                          C
(Why I was the one worth leaving)


Am G7  F
 D.C. sleeps alone tonight
Am G7  F               D
 D.C. sleeps alone tonight



Am       F      G7             G7
Where    I      am            (In this gaudy apartment complex)
   [You seem so out of context]

Am          F       G7           G7
Where       I       am           (Explaining that I am just visiting)
   [A stranger with your door key]

C           F      G7       G7                          C
Where       I      am      (why I was the one worth leaving)
   [And I am finally seeing]
 F                           C
(Why I was the one worth leaving)


Am            F                G7            ( Dm )                  Am
 The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
                F            G7                     Am
 And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
Am          F         G7              F               Am
 And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving
G7             F             C
 Why I was the one worth leaving
G7             F             C
 Why I was the one worth leaving
G7             F             C
 Why I was the one worth leaving 

Outro:
F - Dm - Am7 - C
