The recording is a little out of tune, but it's closer to standard E tuning than it is to Eb.
When I was younger I chased butterflies
D C# B
now I look around and realize
A G D
there ain't no butterflies around here no more.
Now theres more people everywhere,
and on ground that once was bare
they've built condos and shopping malls.
and on streets I walked where the sun shined
shadows grow as buildings climb,
A G B C# D
and I get older getting colder every day.
The concrete stretches for miles
They put it up in different styles,
but it still looks pretty ugly to me....
B E D
B C# D
D C# A
What a Pity, They've f**ked up this city
where I grew up.
Now it's grown too big and there's no room left for me.
The rest is a repeat of these parts. End on A.
