Intro: / Em - - - / C - - - / G - - - / D - - - - / x2

 

  Em (2)

I used to hear him sing in a Bleecker Street bar

            G (2)

On that tiny stage with a borrowed guitar

       D (2)

His voice cutting thru like a speeding car

  C (2)

Tearing through the deals of the brokers at the bar

             Em (2)

Then he sold everything for a Wall Street wage

   G (2)

A rich man's money is  a rich man's cage

 D (2)

Pockets full of gold and a dead man's face

                C (2)

There was life in those eyes though there's not a trace

 

Chorus:

                         G (2)

How much did it cost you?

                               D (2)

How much  did you pay?

              Em (2)                          C (2)

Are you sorry and the end of the day

              G    D                     

Are you sorry    at the end of the day

 

Intro Progression x1

 

       Em (2)

She used to be a friend and a wife and a daughter

                  G (2)

Now she's walked on everybody like she's walking on water

          D (2)

She’ll kiss you on the mouth while she takes what you give her

 C (2)

Turn the  other cheek and she walks away forever

         Em (2)

Your just another rung on the ladder to the top

G (2)

Once she started climbing she couldn’t ever stop

     D (2)

With her entourage around her as she sits on her throne

          C (2)

She's the queen of nothing now, sitting all alone

 

Chorus

 

Intro Progression x2

 

Am            G                             C (2)

    And you found out what you wanted

Am         G                      C (2)

    Well it isn't what you need

Am             G                                Em (2)

     And you curse this train you’re riding

Am       G       C                       D

     You curse it but you never leave

                       Em   C               Em  D

Well there's a way       there's a way

 

Chorus x2, skip last line first time through
