Allentown chords
Billy Joel

C D G 3x

Em G Em GWell we're living here in Allentown
C D GAnd they're closing all the factories down
Em A DOut in Bethlehem they're killing time
F EmFilling out forms
A DStanding in line.
G Em DWell our fathers fought the Second World War
C D GSpent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Em A D AMet our mothers at the USO
A D Asked them to dance
A DDanced with them slow
G Em DAnd we're living here in Allentown.
F G CBut the restlessness was handed down
Em C G D Em DAnd it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
C D G C D G
G Em DWell we're waiting here in Allentown
C D GFor the Pennsylvania we never found
Em A DFor the promises our teachers gave
A EmIf we worked hard
A DIf we behaved.
G EmSo the graduations hang on the wall
C D GBut they never really helped us at all
Em A DNo they never taught us what was real
A DIron or coke,
A DChromium steel.
G Em DAnd we're waiting here in Allentown.
F G CBut they've taken all the coal from the ground
Em C G D Em DAnd the union people crawled awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
C D G
F G BbEvery child had a pretty good shot
F G BbTo get at least as far as their old man got.
F G BbIf something happened on the way to that place
F G BbThey threw an American flag in our face, oh oh oh.
C D G
G Em DWell I'm living here in Allentown
C D GAnd it's hard to keep a good man down.
Em C G D Em DBut I won't be getting up todaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy
C D G GUITAR SOLO
Em C G D Em DAnd it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
C D GAnd we're living here in Allentown.
