Intro: A, C#m, D, E, D
       A, F#m, D, E

Verse 1
A C#m From the housetops to the gutters
D E DFrom the oceans to the shores
A F#mThe warning signs have all been bright and garish
D EFar to great in number to ignore
[repeat that progression] From the cities to the swamplands From the highways to the hills Our love has never had a leg to stand on From the aspirins to the cross-tops to the Elevils 'Chorus' 1
D E A DBut I will walk down to the end with you
A E AIf you will come all the way down with me
Verse 2: (same progression as verse one) From the entrance to the exit Is longer than it looks from where we stand I wanna say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet Things will shortly get completely out of hand I can feel it in the rotten air tonight In the tips of my fingers in the skin on my face In the weak last gasp of the evening's dying light In the way those eyes I've always loved illuminate this place 'Chorus' 2
D ELike a trashcan fire in a prison cell
A DLike the searchlights in the parking lots of hell
A E A DI will walk down to the end with you
A E AIf you will come all the way down with me
[then verse progression while organ solo plays over it, followed by D E A, then A E D transitioned rapidly, then A E A]
