                INTRO: Em C X4

VERSE 1:
   Em                           C
My father once told this to me, Boston's gritty history
  Em                         C
Another ruthless battle in a useless holy war
Em                            C
Handed down discrepancies and tensions that'll never ease
          Em                            C
One early afternoon on broad street, it blew up down there for sure
G                       D                C
Broad street's just not broad enough and you just don't love God enough
    G             D                C
And if that isn't odd enough we've taken too much cr*p
       G                   D                 C
You've pushed us round the sod enough, we've scr*pped and rapped and jawed enough
G                   D            C
Poked, provoked and prod enough, something's gonna snap

BREAK: Em C X2

VERSE 2:
           Em                                 C
The Boston fire fighting volunteers, on their way to fight a fire somewhere
      Em                    C
Met a funeral procession proceeding way too slow
  Em                                  C
A brownstone burns out of control, we need to lay to rest this soul
Em                                  C
Loggerheads on broad street, eye to eye and toe to toe
G                       D                C
Broad street's just not broad enough and you just don't love God enough
    G             D                C
And if that isn't odd enough we've taken too much cr*p
       G                   D                 C
You've pushed us round the sod enough, we've scr*pped and rapped and jawed enough
G                   D            C
Poked, provoked and prod enough, something's gonna snap

CHORUS:
G D          Em    C                 G               D               C            D
Riot down on broad street, hand me a brick, stick, a picket, bottle, axe or cobblestone
G D          Em    C           G            D                   Em                  C   
Riot down on broad street, and if I'm going down, hell, I'm not going down alone, I won't go down alone

BREAK: Em C X4

VERSE 3:
    Em                             C
And when the fight was over they retired to the Clover
       Em                                C
Silver Dollar, Thirsty Scholar, whatever pubs they had back then
  Em                              C
A brownstone was in ashes, broken bones and bloody gashes
      Em                                      C
And a casket sat on broad street 'til the sun came up again
G                       D                C
Broad street's just not broad enough and you just don't love God enough
    G             D                C
And if that isn't odd enough we've taken too much cr*p
       G                   D                 C
You've pushed us round the sod enough, we've scr*pped and rapped and jawed enough
G                   D            C
Poked, provoked and prod enough, something's gonna snap

CHORUS/ENDING:
G D          Em    C                 G               D               C            D
Riot down on broad street, hand me a brick, stick, a picket, bottle, axe or cobblestone
G D          Em                                                 C                     
Riot down on broad street, and if I'm going down, hell, I'm not going down alone
       Em                            C
And if I'm going down, hell, I'm not going down alone
       Em                            C
And if I'm going down, hell, I'm not going down alone
          Em           C                       Em           C
There's a Riot down on broad street, there's a Riot down on broad street
          Em           C                       Em           C
There's a Riot down on broad street, there's a Riot down on broad street
