Intro:F  |F  |Bb  |F  |Bb  |Bb  |F  |F  |C  |Bb  |F  |F  |C  |Bb  |F  |F  |

Verse 1:
F             Bb      F      Bb                           F
The neon haze of city lights,The tribal sound of marching feet,
C                Bb                 F
Cuts through the gloom on cold dark nights,
C             Bb                F
The tired and homeless roam the streets,

Instrumental:C  |Bb  |F  |F  |
             
                Bb         F     Bb                          F
The sirens wail the engines roar,A shadowed man just glances around,
C           Bb             F     C             Bb              F
A victim of life`s mindless toil,Lies cold and helpless on the ground.

Chorus 1:
                                     Bb             F
The window dummies silent stare,Bear witness on the night,
C                       Bb              F               
If they could move,What would it prove?,To see them all take flight.

Verse 2:
              Bb      F      Bb                           F
The neon haze of city lights,The tribal sound of marching feet,
C                Bb                 F
Cuts through the gloom on cold dark nights,
C             Bb                F
The tired and homeless roam the streets,

Instrumental:C  |Bb  |F  |F  |

                     Bb         F     Bb                   F
The walls shout loud with angry words,The people air their views,
 C           Bb                F     C            Bb               F
The poor can scream but no-one hears,The concrete jungle sings the blues.

Chorus 2:
                                     Bb             F
The window dummies silent stare,Bear witness on the night,
C                  Bb                   F
If they could move,What it would prove?,To see them all take flight.

Outro:F  |F  |Bb  |F  |Bb  |Bb  |F  |F  |C  |Bb  |F  |F  |C  |Bb  |F  |F  |
