18th Avenue (Kansas City nightmare)   by   Cat Stevens

CAPO: 2nd Fret

VERSE 1:
         A                D
Well, I rode awhile for a mile or so, 
         Em               A
Down the road to the 18th Avenue,
        A                     D
And the people I saw were the people I know,
         Em               A
And they all came down to take a view,
    A                 D 
The path was dark and borderless, 
         Em               A
Down the road to the 18th Avenue,
       A                    D
And it stung my tongue to repeat the words
       C                Bb
That I used to use only yesterday,
A               D              C
  Meanings just dropped to the ground,
G  A              D             C                  Bb
     I tried to remember what I thought and what I used to say,
F                   Eb
   Don’t let me go down, no, don’t let me go!

  Bb  F  Eb      Eb  F  G A         Asus A


VERSE 2:
       Bb                    Eb
Oh, my hands were tied as I struggled inside
    Db              B
The empty waste of another day,
Bb               Eb          Db
   Memories were blank to my eyes,
Ab Bb                 Eb            Db                 B 
     The fire and the glory of that night seems safely locked away,
Gb                E
    Too hungry to rise, oh, too hungry to...

VERSE 3:
        A                 D         
Well, I rode awhile for a mile or so, 
         Em               A
Down the road to the 18th Avenue,
        A                     D
And the people I saw were the people I know,
         Em               A
And they all came down to take a view,
    A                 D       
The path was dark and borderless,
         Em               A
Down the road to the 18th Avenue,
       A                     D
But my head felt better as I turned the car, 
        C              Bb
And the airport slowly came in view,
A       D              C         G 
   ‘One mile’ said the sign! Woh-oh!
A               D                C                    Bb
   I checked my bags and made it straight to end Gate 22,
F                   Eb
   "Made it just in time...
                         Bb    F  Eb          F  G  A
Boy, you made it just in time!"
