     BUT IT IS THE CITY OF THE DEAD

C           G

BUT YOU GOT DRUNK ANí FALLEN DOWN
C                B
AN' I WISHED I COULD BE LIKE YOU
A             G
WITH THE SOHO RIVER DRINKING ME DOWN

(so on and so forth.  I'm not sure about the ending horn bit, 
but i it is just a rendition on the intro riff, perhaps ending with 
-12-12-12-15-12-15 on the high e string)

IN THE CITY OF THE DEAD
FALL IN LOVE AN' FALL IN BED
IT WASN'T ANYTHING YOU SAID
EXCEPT I KNOW WE BOTH LIE DEAD

DON’T YOU KNOW WHERE TO COP
THAT'S WHAT NEW YORK JOHNNY SAID * * * *
YOU SHOULD GET TO KNOW YOUR TOWN 
JUST LIKE I KNOW MINE

WHILE ALL THE WINDOWS STARE AHEAD
AN’ THE STREETS ARE FILLED WITH DREAD 
EVERY NATION IN THE WORLD
SLINKS THROUGH THE ALLEY AFTER GIRLS

WHAT WE WEAR IS DANGEROUS GEAR 
IT'LL GET YOU PICKED ON ANYWHERE 
THOUGH WE GET BEAT UP WE DON’T CARE 
AT LEAST IT LIVENS UP THE AIR

BUT SOMEDAYS WE HIDE INSIDE
ALL COURAGE GONE AND PARALYSED 
SNIFF THAT WIND OF UGLY TENSION 
  F                  Em   G
TODAY THE JERKS HAVE GOT AGGRESSION
G
IT IS THE CITY OF THE DEAD
