                The other version of these chords sounded off so this is how I play it which I think is 


A--- C#m--- D--- Dm--- x2
Hold last Dm

Verse 1
No chords
Hello city, hey
A       C#m                 D                Dm      
Another night at the Palace, 'cause there is nothing else to do.
   C#m       D        Dm
Oh-woah, ah-hah
A             C#m                   D              
The same people, the same drinks and the same music, the same quicksand
             C#m             D                      Dm (stop short)
I think this harbour town is waist deep and sinking fast.

Chorus (same chords as verse)
Hello city, you've found an enemy in me. Woah-oh, woah-oh [Andy Scatting]
Hello city, (Hello city). Hello city, hey

Verse 2 (Same chords)
Second night at the Warehouse, and my mock turtleneck just reeks. Woah-oh, woah-oh
To the doom and gloom of the hotel room,
I wish this seaside beerhall would sink into the bay.


Bridge (this part doesn't use much guitar-- mostly bass, but this is how I emulate it)
       Bm                          C#m
Maybe I caught you at a bad time, (wat'up)
               Bm                C#m
Maybe I should call you back next week, (wat'up)
      Bm                                       C#m
maybe half the fault is mine that (wat'up) the sun didn't shine on
Barrington Street.

Verse 3 (back to same progression)
It's three o'clock in the morning, and I'm hungry so let's eat. Woah-oh, woah-oh.
Climb down three flights to the streetlights
and the barfights, we're just taking in the sights.
I hope tomorrow that I wake up in my own bed.

(Hold Dm for bass solo and then back to chorus)


                     A          C#m
What a good place to be, Don't believe them,
             D                                     Dm
'Cause they speak a different language, and it's never been happy for me.
(Continue the A C#m D Dm progression
It's happy hour again
Woah-oh, woah-oh - It's happy hour again
Woah-oh, woah-oh - Hello city, hey
                         Dm----  A
Woah-oh, woah-oh - Hello city - hey

Drag out Dm on last Hello City, end on A with 'hey'
