Bm	Em7	C	G 

              Bm              Em7           C                G
There's no sun and no starlight to shine on the rails
      Bm              Em7           C                      G
The spray painted words of the prophets have failed
Bm              Em7           C                G
Down in this tunnel there's no day or night
    Cadd9        Bm            C
Up above is it darkness or light 


Bm              Em7           C                G
It's all just a dream I wake up and I'm back
             Bm          Em7    C                        G
Where the wheels of reality screech down the track
      Bm          Em7                 C              G
The ride is the moment they're all waiting for
     Cadd9    Bm                   C 
Can't afford to believe that there's more
        Em              Bm               C
I can't kid myself into thinking there's more



         Bm            Em7                C            G
And he lives in the suburbs and he carries a phone
  Bm           Em7               C                G
I watch him arrive and I'll watch him go home
     Bm            Em7              C                     G
He'll pitch me a quarter as he stops to change lines
     Cadd9    Bm                   C 
He'd stay but he never has time
     Em                  Bm          C 
Would he stay if he ever had time

    D    C  G
So hold my eye
            D           C         G           
While the rest of the city flies by
          D             C       C/C/G/Bb G 
And the tips and the tokens you left me today
          G            Bm         C
Are the price of my ride on the subway

           









             Bm                 Em7          C                  G
And I've seen drowning hobos and rich men who pass
Bm              Em7            C                   G
Reflected in fragments of Boston bound glass
          Bm          Em7                C               G
And I'll be Jimmie Rodgers, The Cure or The Who
       Cadd9       Bm              C
If it makes any difference to you
            Em          Bm              C
Does it make any difference to you

    D    C  G
So hold my eye
            D           C         G           
While the rest of the city flies by
          D             C       C/C/G/Bb G 
And the tips and the tokens you left me today
          G            Bm         C
Are the price of my ride on the subway
                  G            Bm            C
They’re the price of my ride on the subway
                  G            Bm            C
They’re the price of my ride on the subway
