Verse 1 A D We are the city A D Where the lights come on and they never go out A D And the streets are filled with the children's shouts A D E I want to hear you sing that song for me A D I want to capture one at a time A D E All the little brown flecks that made my eyes go blind A D All the wide eyed splendor that I put in a frame A D E I want to tear it down and let it throw perspective insane A D There's a light up in a box at the top of a post A D E Giving direction to the shadows that could use it the most A D Turn aside pilgrim at the sound of her voice! G A It's wisdom herself that offers the choice CHORUS F# D F# Oh, come to the city D F# We're taking over the world Verse 2 same chords We are the city With the lights strung out on the evergreen trees And the yard lit up so the neighbors can see Come on and capture what you think you couldn't keep Turn on the light switch and everything's bright It doesn't even take a moment to erase the night How would it be if I knew this was true If I opened my eyes and tried to help you What good is salt if it stops being salty? I tried to run but my cover was blown What good is a map if it gives no direction? And what good is home if it isn't your home? Chorus 2 the same Oh, come to the city We're taking over the world Bridge A My momma said 'Son, you're a little man 'Listen to me and understand A 'Soon we're gonna take that car 'And drive away where ever we are' All palm muted A Let's go We'll catch a ride to the city A Let's go where the streets are wide A Let's go We'll catch a ride to the city A Let's go Then Solo where it's all A and D, and then Chorus Again. This sound WAY better with power chords so use those. Have fun playing it.
