originally written by the Talking Heads

Here is how Phish plays Cities on their new CD, Slip Stitch and Pass,
and in in concert.  This is the guitar  part only.  The pianist plays chords.

intro-hit the D chord, with wah (used in the whole song)
after you hit the D mute the strings and keep the beat. This goes throughout
the whole verse.
Verse:

        Think of London
D
        Small City
D
        Dark,
D
        Dark in the daytime.
D
        People sleep
D
        sleep in the daytime.
D
        If they want to,
D
        If they want to.
D
        I'm checkin em out                      NOTE: Df means D FLAT
Df
        I'm checkin em out
Df
        I got it figured out
D
        I    got it figured out there's some
D

        some good points,
G               F       F#
        some bad points
G               F    F#
        but it all works out.
F                       F
        I'm just a little freaked out
F                               F
Chorus:

        Find your city
F#
        find yourself a city to live in.
        E                                       B
        I will

        find a city,
F#
        Find yourself a city to live in.
        E                                       B
Verse:

Alot of bridges in
Birmingham
A lot of ghosts
In a lot of houses
Look over there
Dry Ice factory
good place to get some thinking done.

I'm checkin' em out
I'm checkin em out
I got it figured out
Im the one that got it figured out
there's some
Some good points
some bad points.

and then the Chorus again, followed by an instrumental break.
This is a great time for some doodling on the B major scale.
After this another verse:

Did I forget to mention
Forget to mention Memphis?
Home of Elvis and the
Ancient Greeks
Do I smell?
I smell home cookin'
It's only the river
It's only the river

I'm checkin em out
I'm checkin em out
I got it figured out
I got it figured out
there's some
some good points
some bad points
are those things real?
goodnight (what does he really say here?)

The song ends with the chorus, which goes around FOUR times instead of 2.
After that a short jam is carried out and finishes the song.
