Intro:

B, Bsus4,

BI caught the bus in Chinatown and slept the whole way up I-95
G#mThe driver, cut and weaved so crazy, just his luck kept him
F#alive I guess I believed his rhythm on that morning after
BNew Year's Eve
F#
BAnd I remember Shanghai, how I wasn't sure just what was safe to
G#meat the chickens pecked and wandered at the barefoot ankles of the
F#children hawking figurines of workers smiling what's the Chinese
Bword for cheese?
F#
BWatched a sidewalk butcher his instinctive understanding made the
G#mcarcass snap and clarify beneath his nimble hand that held the
F#knife so long, so many times, the handle's changed to shapes just like his
Bfingers and his
F#palms
BAnd I, I am a passenger tonight I watch the
F#world from
Einside.
Interlude: B
BIt's 2AM in Tokyo and still too soon to call back to the
F#people who will soon begin the day I polished off and I will
G#mwalk a mile amidst the neon lights that advertise I don't
Bknow just what they
F#sell
BI tell the taxi driver, "To the park Hyatt-o" And his
G#mgloves are pristine white just like the girls I used to know would wear to
F#dance their first cotillion, every single one of them named
BJennifer
F#
BI clutched at the St. Christopher I picked up at some country abbey
G#mlong ago when I believed he'd keep me safe and make me happy
F#but it seems the luck he brings is not the common currency a
Bpenny in
F#Japan
BAnd I, I am a passenger tonight I watch the
F#world from
Einside.
Interlude: B, Bsus4
BAnd I, I am a passenger tonight I watch the
F#world from
Einside.
Outro: B, Bsus4
