Verse:
A(v)                A7  A6 A(v)  D                  G   / / /
City streets, I see your lies, I will not play your game,

A(v)               A7  A6 A(v)     D                 G   /
No longer will you talk to me, you think I'm going insane,

But I've forgotten my number now, I'm remembering my name.

          Bm7                         E     Esus4 E
I've been too long travelling on your train.


Verse:
You tried your best to strangle me, but I could take the pain,
You tried to hypnotise me, but I see right through your game,
And now your tatty tricks to me seem really rather tame,
I've been too long travelling on your train.


Chorus:
Amaj7                         Bm7/A
City lights don't shine, they glare

         Amaj7                   Bm7/A
And your music doesn't speak, it swears,

Dm                      C             G                   
And in your streets the girls have forgotten why they're there.


Repeat intro:


Verse:
Someday soon I know I'm going miles and miles away,
Back to the garden where the magic children play,
And to the country lady who knows more than I can say,
Whose night shines brighter than your day.


Chorus:
City lights don't shine, they glare
And your music doesn't speak, it swears,
And in your streets the girls have forgotten why they're there.


A... (repeat to fade).
