Sin City  Emmylou Harris

This old [F]town is filled with [C]sin
It will [F7]swallow you [Bb]in
If you've [F]got some money to [C]bur[C7]n
Take it [F]home right a[C]way
[C7]You've got [F7]three years to [Bb]pay
[F]But Satan is [C7]waiting his [F]turn[C7]
The [F]scientists [C]say
It will [F7]all wash a[Bb]way
But [F]we don't believe any [C]mo[C7]re
Cause we've [F]got our rec[C]ruits
And our [F7]green mohair [Bb]suits
So [F]please show your [C7]I.D. At the [F]door[F7]
This old [Bb]earthquake's gonna [C7]leave me in the [F]poor house[F7]
It [Bb]seems like this [F]whole town's in[C7]sane
On the [Bb]thirty-first [C7]floor a [F]gold pla[F7]ted [Bb]door
Won't [F]keep out the [C7]Lord's burning [F]rain[C7]
SOLO in F around melody then Bb D7
A [G]friend came a[D7]round
Tried to [G7]clean up this [C]town
His i[G]deas made some people [D]mad[D7]
But he [G]trusted his [D]crowd
So he [G7]spoke right out [C]loud
[G]And they lost the [D7]best friend they [G]had[G7]
This old [C]earthquake's gonna [D7]leave me in the [G]poor hous[G7]e
It [C]seems like this [G]whole town's [D7]insane
On the [C]thirty-first [D]floor a [G]gold [G7]plated [C]door
Won't [G]keep out the [D7]Lord's burning [G]rai[G7]n
On the [C]thirty-first [D]floor a [G]gold [G7]plated [C]door
Won't [G]keep out the [D7]Lord's burning [C]rain[G]
