They flashed a photograph, It couldn't be you

Off the national mall

G
And from my ten floor tenement
                      Am
Where once our bodies lay
                         C
How I longed to hear you say
Cm                         G
"No they'll never catch me now
Cm
No they'll never catch me
Am                      F
No they cannot catch me now
   E               F
We will escape somehow
Fm
Somehow, oh"

Telephone
           Cadd9 Cadd9                                         
I heard a strangled     
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Cmaj7* Cmaj7* [ch]E5/C[/ch]* [ch]E5/C[/ch]* Cmaj7* Cmaj7* [ch]E5/C[/ch]
Cry           on the     end of the       line

Purloined in Petrograd
Esus4 Am Esus4 Dsus2 Am Esus4                  [ch]E5/C[/ch]
They were suspicious of where your loyalties lay

Esus4  Am      Esus4 Am Esus4 Dsus2 Am Esus4
So I paid off a bureaucrat

G
And at the gate of the embassy
                          Am
Our hands met through the bars
                           C
As your whisper stilled my heart
Cm                         G
"No they'll never catch me now
Cm
No they'll never catch me
Am                      F
No they cannot catch me now

We will escape somehow

Somehow, oh"

G
And I dreamt one night
                  F#
You were there in form

Hands held high

In uniform
G
Oh
F#
Oh

Years on

       Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Cmaj7* Cmaj7* [ch]E5/C[/ch]* [ch]E5/C[/ch]* Cmaj7* Cmaj7* [ch]E5/C[/ch]
In a motorcar

And with the wave of an arm 
Cmaj7* Cmaj7* [ch]E5/C[/ch]* [ch]E5/C[/ch]* Cmaj7* Cmaj7*
You were       there        and gone
