Heart Of The City

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City

 

The chord progression to this song is:

        D, D7, G, A

 

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7

Deep in the heart of the city where you gotta fight to live each day

††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† A

I saw an old friend of mine bow to his knees and pray

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Along came the red-eyed policeman - Sadly he did say,

††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

ďThereís nothing here in the law books that says that you canít stay right hereĒ

†††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

And people gathered around him to see if he was well

††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

I'm not the only one who heard him slam the gates to hell

 

††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

From a whisper to a tremble - From a tremble to a roar

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Do you think we finally found the keys to heavenís door?

††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

From a whisper to a tremble - From a tremble to a roar

G††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††A

Could you imagine if we had ten million more?

 

(break)

 

††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Well, up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Flyin' hand in hand with a new law for the land

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Flyin' hand in hand with a new law for the land

 

D††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Out on the skyline I see a wave

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

I canít turn my head and run - Iíve got to be brave

††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Cuz I have the key and I hold the key

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Ainít no way that you can take it from me

 

D†††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Out on the highway I know my role

G

Hangin' on to an old street light

††††††† A

And makin' half-dreams whole

 

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Iíve had the dreams - I hold them true

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††A

Sitting here tryin' to figure out the next thing I should do

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Iíve had the dreams and Iíve seen the unseen

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Iíve got so much power that Iím busting at the seams
