McFly (Danny Jones)
Silence of the City


Am G D/f# E

Verse:
        Am                G     
It was Tuesday afternoon,

I got home from work quite soon,
    D/f#              
I turned on the tv and,
     E
What did I see?
        Am
I saw World War Three,
G
Staring back at me,
    D/f#                       E
I thought I might wake up to reality,
               Am
There wasnt gonna be,
G
Yeah,
           D/f#
And all I could see was,
        E
This horrific tragedy.

[chorus]

               Am
In the Silence Of The City,
      G            F
No mobile phones ring,
               Am  
In the Silence Of The City,
       G            F
You cannot hear a thing,
               Am 
In the Silence Of The City,
     G            F
The smiles are washed away,
               Am   
In the Silence Of The City,
         G              F 
Theres nothing left to say.

Verse:
        Am 
And New York, New York,
     G                         
So good they named you twice,
     D/f#                    
The city that never sleeps,
         E
Do you believe your eyes?
    Am
And by this act of war,
    G                     D/f#    E
Big apple is eaten to the core,
     Am
And two tall towers,
   G
Crumble to the floor,
       D/f#
And Manhattan isnít there,
       E
Itís there no more!



[chorus]
               Am
In the Silence Of The City,
      G            F
No mobile phones ring,
               Am  
In the Silence Of The City,
       G            F
You cannot hear a thing,
               Am 
In the Silence Of The City,
     G            F
The smiles are washed away,
               Am   
In the Silence Of The City,
         G              F 
Theres nothing left to say.


         Am
And hardened New York cops,
      G 
With tears in their eyes,
     D/f#
Tired & worn out fire-fighters,
           E
Hoping to hear cries,
         Am
And emergency & medics,
              G
Overcome by exhaustion,
         D/f#
And all rescue workers,
             E
Filled with deep emotion.



               Am
In the Silence Of The City,
      G            F
No mobile phones ring,
               Am  
In the Silence Of The City,
       G            F
You cannot hear a thing,
               Am 
In the Silence Of The City,
     G            F
The smiles are washed away,
               Am   
In the Silence Of The City,
         G              F 
Theres nothing left to say.



        Am
The eleventh of September,
G       
Two thousand & one,
   D/f#
The world trade centre,
         E
And the U.S. Pentagon,
         Am
These pictures that we see,
G
Almost defies belief,
         D/f#
On the streets of New York City,
              E
People are hit by sheer grief.

               Am
In the Silence Of The City,
      G            F
No mobile phones ring,
               Am  
In the Silence Of The City,
       G            F
You cannot hear a thing,
               Am 
In the Silence Of The City,
     G            F
The smiles are washed away,
               Am   
In the Silence Of The City,
         G              F 
Theres nothing left to say.


         G                     
The New York City skyline,
     F
We all admired before,
     G
The tall twin towers,
 Fmaj7
Simply are there no more.

         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am            G    F
In the Silence Of The City,
         Am
In the Silence.

I saw no one has yet posted this song.Quite a good song I might add 
especially when you consider how young Danny was (14/15 if i'm not
mistaken).So,I know this song has a lot of those open chords which make it
sound so great but I just didn't have the time to figure them
out.These,however,I think work quite well with the song.
