[Intro]
F#m         E F#m x2

[Verse 1]
F#mSliding along by the Seine, it's May Day
F#mThis song'€™s in my head once again
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom we've been racing
F#mCoughing my lungs up on Rue des Irlandais
F#mBecoming a risk to myself
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom and we're racing
F#mThe radio silence and the anarchists
F#mAre gathering names, dates and lists for burning
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom that we've been racing
[Bridge]
A F#mOh, how you move me, truly
A F#mOh, how you set my heart aglow
[Verse 2]
F#mI'€™m shadowing in with the crowds unnoticed
F#mSomebody painted an '€™X' on my back
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom and we're racing
F#mPiss on the streets after dark in Paris
F#mEven on dear Joan of Arc, she knows
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom and we've been racing
[Chorus]
BmEven the gods as they gaze down on us
EKnow that there's no one to be saved among us
F#m EThey keep turning away, turning away
BmWe're singing along with the righteous people
EThe bullets will rain down from the mosques and steeples
F#m EThey keep turning away, turning away
[Verse 3]
F#mA taste for the wine and a woman's forgiveness
F#mHer man's in decline, oh, it's a nasty business
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom that we've been racing
F#mOur blood is no thicker than this water, my brother
F#mYou'll find out soon one way or the other
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom that we've been racing
[solo] F#m E F#m x2 [Chorus]
BmEven the clouds that send the rains down on us
ESee a horizon that goes way beyond us
F#m EWe keep drifting away, drifting away
BmWhile down in the dark in the tick-tock alleys
ETime's running out and there's still bills to tally
F#m EWe keep chipping away, chipping away
[break] F#m E x4 [Verse 4]
F#mSliding along with the bouquinistes
F#mBaldwin and Brecht and the distance between us
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom that we've been racing
F#mI'm rising up strong like a snake that's charmed
F#mA handsome Parisienne on my arm
E F#mIt's a long way down to the bottom that we've been racing
[outro] F#m E F#m x4
