The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

	  		

Intro: C  F  Am  (4x)

C       F     Am   Am 
 Smeared black ink 
C     F            Am                   
 Your face is ashen and I'm barely listening 
C   F       Am 
 To last demands 
C                   F 
 I'm staring at the asphalt wondering 
Am                      Am 
 What's buried underneath 


 C     F G  G  
 Where I am 
 C     F G  G 
 Where I am 


      C    F  Am    Am 
 I'll wear my badge 
C                     F                 Am 
 A vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest 
C   F                Am 
  That tells your new  friends 
C       F            
 I am a visitor here 
Am 
 I am not permanent 
C        F    Am 
 And the only thing 
C    F      Am 
 Keeping me dry is 


C        F      G              G 
Where    I      am            (In this gaudy apartment complex) 
   You seem so out of context 

C           F       G             G 
Where       I       am           (Explaining that I am just visiting) 
   A stranger with your door key 

C           F      G        G 
Where       I      am      (why I was the one worth leaving) 
   And I am finally seeing 
 F                          C 
(Why I was the one worth leaving) 


Am G   F 
 D.C. sleeps alone tonight 
Am G   F               D 
 D.C. sleeps alone tonight 



C        F      G              G 
Where    I      am            (In this gaudy apartment complex) 
   You seem so out of context 

C           F       G            G 
Where       I       am           (Explaining that I am just visiting) 
   A stranger with your door key 

C           F      G        G                           C 
Where       I      am      (why I was the one worth leaving) 
   And I am finally seeing 
 F                           C 
(Why I was the one worth leaving) 


Am            F                G             ( Dm )                  Am 
 The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights 
                F            G                      Am 
 And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening 
Am          F         G               F               Am 
 And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving 
G              F             C 
 Why I was the one worth leaving 
G              F             C 
 Why I was the one worth leaving 
G              F             C 
 Why I was the one worth leaving
