CAPO 2 Intro: A E F#M D E A E F#M D E Jenny left from Idaho and made her home in Capitol Hill A E F#M D E In a 300 square foot studio above a coffee shop near the Broadway Grill A E F#M D E And every night she walks the block to trade in her time for cheap thrills A E F#M D E And everyone she meets is cool, but just out of reach and it kills F#M D A E She used to spend her nights by firelight and singing to the stars F#M E Now shes ours A E F#M D E Kevin left from Denver where the air is clear and people are nice A E F#M D E And he traded it for sea level, for misty rain, what a bitter compromise F#M D A E For now he felt like he belonged to those who understood him F#M D A E But he sold his soul to fit right in and he watched his friends desert him F#M D A E He used to spend his nights by candlelight and drinking wine to vinyl F#M E Now hes ours D Its a city of orphans A E Who had nowhere to go D So they cashed in their dreams A E Headed northwest to the sea and they called it their home D But most dont belong here A E Were all running away D A And well drain you dry of all semblance of life E We dont give we just take, take, take Bridge: F#M F#M But this city has no Bible F#M F#M Theres no meaning you can use D E A Were all desperately searching for truth D Were a city of orphans A E Who had nowhere to go D A So we cashed in our dreams, filled our glasses with Beam E and our bodies with smoke D and we spend every weeknight A E trading pints at the Streamline D A E and we talk about truth and we talk about love but we wake up to lies, lies, lies D its a city of orphans A E where did our fathers go D A E we stumble around in the bad part of town at the end of our rope D but there are no answers A E on the tables of oak D if God could just hear us A E we think that Hes near, but He left long ago D were a city of orphans A E what do we do to ourselves? D A E We take all the good and the heaven around us and turn it to hell D A E We take all the good and the heaven around us and turn it to hell D A E We take all the good and the heaven around us and turn it to hell A E F#M D E Jenny left from Idaho and made her home in Capitol Hill This is my first song to put up here. I'm not too sure on the 4 F#m's in the bridge section, but it fits. I hope this works for you, Thanks!
