With most of the song I find that it sounds better to just mute the high e string, but 
your own judgment.

Am G Am C Am    X2

       Am                     C
Me and Harvey shouted slogans in Spanish
G                         Am
 Like it was our world to win
                              C
Then they move a plant down a hater
        G                  Am
Time to bite your tongue again


     F               Am
I've seen the fabled city
     G                       Am
It's streets are paved with gold
       F            Am
But an iron fence runs round it
     C      G      Am
It's iron gate is closed


Am G Am C Am    X2


      Am                        C
What ain't right ain't right he told me
              G                       Am
But something else passed behind his eyes
         Am                             C
No he's downtown on his knees washing floors for somebody
    G                   Am
And quietly biding his time


     F               Am
I've seen the fabled city
     G                       Am
It's streets are paved with gold
       F            Am
But an iron fence runs round it
     C      G        A     G  F  E
It's iron gate is closed


Am G Am C Am

Am G Am C

C  G  C  G    (Same rhythm as main riff)

Am G Am C Am

    Am                       C
The gas station on Sunset and Crescent
         G              Am
I met an angel sad and old
                         C
She lived in the alley behind the market
       G                               Am
In the shadows may be hidden from the lord
     Am                C
And for a dollar she sang a song
G                    Am
Sounded more like a prayer
   Am                     C
A wish that  her dead mother and father
         G                      Am
Couldn't look down and see her there


     F               Am
I've seen the fabled city
     G                       Am
It's streets are paved with gold
       F            Am
But an iron fence runs round it
     C      G      Am
It's iron gate is closed


Am G Am C Am    X2

     F                Am
On a wire outside my window
      G                Am
There sit one hundred swallows
      F             Am
And I suspect that if one flew
      G                  Am
Then ninety-nine would follow
