Children 18 3 - The City chords

   Verse 1
A DWe are the city
A DWhere the lights come on and they never go out
A DAnd the streets are filled with the children's shouts
A D EI want to hear you sing that song for me
A DI want to capture one at a time
A D EAll the little brown flecks that made my eyes go blind
A DAll the wide eyed splendor that I put in a frame
A D EI want to tear it down and let it throw perspective insane
A DThere's a light up in a box at the top of a post
A D EGiving direction to the shadows that could use it the most
A DTurn aside pilgrim at the sound of her voice!
G AIt's wisdom herself that offers the choice
F# D F#Oh, come to the city
D F#We're taking over the world
Verse 2 same chords We are the city With the lights strung out on the evergreen trees And the yard lit up so the neighbors can see Come on and capture what you think you couldn't keep Turn on the light switch and everything's bright It doesn't even take a moment to erase the night How would it be if I knew this was true If I opened my eyes and tried to help you What good is salt if it stops being salty? I tried to run but my cover was blown What good is a map if it gives no direction? And what good is home if it isn't your home? Chorus 2 the same Oh, come to the city We're taking over the world Bridge
AMy momma said 'Son, you're a little man
'Listen to me and understand
A'Soon we're gonna take that car
'And drive away where ever we are' All palm muted
ALet's go
We'll catch a ride to the city
ALet's go
where the streets are wide
ALet's go
We'll catch a ride to the city
ALet's go
Then Solo where it's all A and D, and then Chorus Again. This sound WAY better with power chords so use those. Have fun playing it.
