Heart Of The City

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Natureís Cathedrals

 

The chord progression to this song is:

        D, D7, G, A

 

D

Deep in the heart of the city

††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Where you gotta fight to live each day

††††††††††††††††††† G

I saw an old friend of mine

††††† A

He bowed to his knees and pray

 

D

Along came the red-eyed policeman

D7

Sadly he did say

††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

ďThereís nothing here in the law books

††††††† A

That sayís that you can't stay right hereĒ

 

†††††† D

And people gathered around him

†††† D7

To see if he was well

††††††††††††††††† G

Iím not the only one

††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Who heard him slam the gates to hell

 

††††††††††† D

From a whisper to a tremble

††††††††††† D7

From a tremble to a roar

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

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

††††††††††† D

From a whisper to a tremble

††††††††††† D7

From a tremble to a roar

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Could you imagine if we had ten million more?

 

(break)

 

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

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

Flying hand in hand with a new law for the land

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

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

Flying hand in hand singing, ďNow we understandĒ

 

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
