G   D   Am   C (x2)

Verse #1:

              G                         D
	Sirens ring, the shots ring out
                 Am                        C 
	A stranger cries, screams out loud

                G                          D  
	I had my world strapped against my back

                  Am                        C   (D)
	I held my hands, never knew how to act


	And the same black line that was drawn on you

	Was drawn on me

	And now it's drawn me in

                  C      (D)
	6th Avenue heartache

Verse #2:

	Below me was a homeless man
	I'm singing songs I knew complete
	On the steps alone, his guitar in hand
	It's fifty years, stood where he stands


Verse #3:

	Now walkin' home on those streets
	The river winds move my feet
	Subway steam, like silhouettes in dreams
	They stood by me, just like moonbeams

(instrumental part: play same chords)

Verse #4:

	Look out the window, down upon that street
	And gone like a midnight was that man
	But I see his 6 strings laid against that wall
	And all his things, they all look so small
	I got my fingers crossed on a shooting star
	Just like me, just moved on 

(Chorus/ad-lib to fade...)
