Capo on 2nd. Essentially, it's E and A2 the entire song.

[E]
As I walk these narrow streets
[A2]                                             [E]
Where a million passin' feet have trod before me

With my guitar in my hand
            [A2]                      [E]
Suddenly I realize nobody knows me

           [A2]
Where yesterday the multitude
                                                             [E]
Screamed and cried my name out for a song

Today the streets are empty
             [A2]                   [E]
And the crowds have all gone home


I pass a million houses
                  [A2]                    [E]
But there is no place that I belong

All I knew to give you
               [A2]                   [E]
Was song after song after song

[A2]
All the truths I tried to tell you
                                             [E]
Were as distant to you as the moon
                             [A2]
Born 200 years too late
                     [E]
And 200 years too soon


I'm a child of this age
[A2]                                        [E]
Locked into the pages of your book

And when I am but dust and clay
[A2]                                              [E]
And all the children stop to take a look

              [A2]
Will they marvel at the miracles I did perform
                                    [E]
And the heights I did aspire
[A2]
Or will they tear out the pages of the book
            [E]
To light a fire


With the rain on my face
[A2]                             [E]
There is no place that I belong

Did you forget this fucking singer so soon?
