Fifty years after the fair

	  		Intro: D A Em Em/F# G 
 
               D            A         Em  Em/F#            G 
Fifty years after the fair the picture I have is so clear 
Underneath the clouds in the air rose the tyrlon and the perisphere 
      Em        A              G           D 
And that for me was the finest of scenes 
Em              A                     G         D       A  G 
That perfect world across the river in queens 
                D            A         Em  Em/F#            G  
Fifty years after the fair I drink from a different cup 
But it does no good to compare 'cause nothing ever measures up 
   Em    A              G           D 
I guess just for a second we thought  
Em              A                     G         D       A  G 
That all good things would rise to the top 
chorus: 
Bm        G                      D 
But how beautiful it was - 'tomorrow'  
Bm        G            D        A 
We'll never have a day of sorrow 
     Em                  Em/F#          G             A 
We got through the '30's, but our belts were tight 
We conceived of a future with no hope in sight 
               Em          Em/F#          C      
We've got decades ahead of us to get it right 
  Em        Bb    C                  D    G 
I swear - fifty years after the fair 
 
{solo} 
D A Em Em/F# G 2x 
Em A G D 
Em A G D A G 
 
               D            A         Em  Em/F#            G 
Fifty years after the fair I live in tomorrow town 
Even on a wing and a prayer The future never came around 
      Em        A              G           D 
It hurts to even think of those days 
Em              A                     G         D       A  G 
The damage we do by the hopes that we raise 
 
{chorus} 
 
A Em Em/F# G D {repeat}
