Verse: G D You lost faith in the human spirit F C You walk around like a ghost C G Your star-spangled heart Am D Took a train for the coast G D When you shine you're a hilltop mansion F C So how'd you lose the light? C G Was it blown by the wind, Am D In the still of the night? C We're up against the wall Chorus: (Listen for timing) G D C D Em G Am Am Cmaj9 C D Up against the wall There's something dying on the street When they knock you down You're gonna get back on your feet (No you can't stop now) Verse: G D I always saw you as a kind of keeper F C A mother to a child C G But your boys have grown soft Am D Dsus2 And your girls have gone wild G D From the blue ridge to the black hills F C To the redwood sky C G The season may pass Am D But the dream doesn't die C Why did you drop the ball? Chorus: (Listen for timing) G D C D Em G Am Am Cmaj9 C D Up against the wall There's something dying on the street When they knock you down You're gonna get back on your feet (No you can't stop now) G D C D Em G Am Am Cmaj9 C D When they break your heart When they cause your soul to mourn Remember what I said Boy you was battle born (No, you can't stop now)
