Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Mercy Street  Peter Gabriel

[Dbm]Looking down on empty streets, [E/Db]all she can see
Are the [Gbm/A]dreams all made solid, are the [Gbm]dreams made real
[Dbm]All of the buildings, [E/Db]all of the cars
Were [Gbm/A]once just a dream in [E/Db]somebody's head
She [Dbm]pictures the broken glass, [E/Db]pictures the steam
She [A]pictures a soul with [A/Gb]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
[A]Words support like [B]bone              

Dreaming of [E/Db]Mer--[A]cy [B]Street, [Dbm]wear your in[Abm/B]side  [A9]out
Dreaming of [E]mercy [A]  [B]  in your [Dbm]daddy's arms [B]again
Dreaming of [E/Db]Mer--[A]cy [B]Street, [Dbm]swear they moved [Abm/B]that  [A9]sign
Dreaming of [E]mercy [A]  [B]  in your [Dbm]daddy's arms

[E/Db] [A]  [E/Db]  [A]     [Dbm] 
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
Of [A]kissing Mary's [B]lips              

repeat solo

[Dbm]Mercy, mercy looking for mercy
[Dbm]Mercy, [B]   looking for [Db]mercy  [B]
Looking for [Dbm]mercy  [A]
Looking for [Dbm]mercy...

[Dbm]Anne with her father is [E/Db]out in the boat
[Gbm/A]Riding the water,  [Gbm]riding the waves on the [Dbm]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?
