                                          "Town Without Pity"
                   (Dmitri Tiomkin - Ned Washington)

[Notes: 1) the time signature is 12/8, but is notated throughout as 4/4;
        2) as usual, the chords notated here are a composite of the various
	   parts - I don't think there even is a guitar on the record.]

Verse 1:

	When you're young and so in love as we
	And bewildered by the world we see
	     F#m7-5/C         B7
	Why do people hurt us so
	      Em7                Gm6
	Only those in love would know
	       D/A      A+  G6   C#7-5 F#7sus4 F#7+5-9
	                       [x3400x]        [21203x]
	What a town without pity  can   do

Verse 2:

	If we stop to gaze upon a star
	People talk about how bad we are
	Ours is not an easy age
	We're like tigers in a cage
	        A13    A7+5  A7  A13 D   Am7/E D7/F#
	What a town without pity can do


	                G       G6/D     Gmaj7     G6/D
	The young have problems      many problems
	            G   Bm7-5 /F E7sus4 E7
	We need an understanding heart
	                A      A6/E        Amaj7    F#m
	Why don't they help us      try and help us
	             Bm [N.C.]        E [N.C.]      A    F#7+5-9
	Before this clay and granite planet falls apart

Verse 3:

	Take these eager lips and hold me fast
	I'm afraid this kind of joy can't last
	How can we keep love alive
	How can anything survive
	           D/A     A+    G6 C#7-5 F#7sus4 F#7
	When these little minds tear you in two
	       Gmaj7         A7      D     G7+5
	What a town without pity can do

	[key change to Cm]

	Ca-A-an do
