Mercy Street

Peter Gabriel

 DbmE/Db
 Looking down on empty streets, all she can see
 Gbm/AGbm
Are the dreams all made solid, are the dreams made real
 DbmE/Db
 All of the buildings, all of the cars
 Gbm/AE/Db
Were once just a dream in somebody's head
 DbmE/Db
She pictures the broken glass, pictures the steam
 AA/Gb
She pictures a soul with no leak at the seam

 Dbm
 Let's take the boat out (wait until darkness)
 Dbm
 Let's take the boat out (wait until darkness comes)

Nowhere in the corridors of pale green and grey
Nowhere in the suburbs, in the cold light of day
There in the midst of it so alive and alone
 AB
 Words support like bone               

chorus
 E/DbABDbmAbm/BA9
Dreaming of Mer--cy Street, wear your inside  out
 EABDbmB
Dreaming of mercy     in your daddy's arms again
 E/DbABDbmAbm/BA9
Dreaming of Mer--cy Street, swear they moved that  sign
 EABDbm
Dreaming of mercy     in your daddy's arms

solo
 E/DbAE/DbADbm
Pulling out the papers from the drawers that slide smooth
Tugging at the darkness, word upon word
Confessing all the secret things in the warm velvet box
To the priest-he's the doctor, he can handle the shocks
Dreaming of the tenderness-the tremble in the hips
 AB
Of kissing Mary's lips               

chorus
repeat solo

 Dbm
 Mercy, mercy looking for mercy
 DbmBDbB
 Mercy,    looking for mercy   
 DbmA
Looking for mercy   
 Dbm
Looking for mercy...

 DbmE/Db
 Anne with her father is out in the boat
 Gbm/AGbmDbm
 Riding the water,  riding the waves on the sea

Beautiful song! I have it in my head when I wake in the morning now.

But those chords? You are using a capo on second fret, and then playing from Am something.
Any chance you could put in the grids for those that you use?
