We Built This City

Jefferson Starship

 Cmaj9GGAm7G
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
 Cmaj9GBmGCmaj7
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
(G C (d e d g f# d low a, d low A) Bm Am, G C, D/F# G)

 GC
Say you don't know me, or recognize my face
 F/GD/GG
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place
 C
Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight
 F/GDGD/F#
Too many runaways eating up the night

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
 C(add9BmAm7C(add9GCEm
We built this city,            we built this city on rock and roll

Someone's always playing corporation games
Who cares they're always changing corporation names
We just want to dance here, someone stole the stage
They call us irresponsible, write us off the page

 GCGCD/F#GG/BGCD
It's just another Sunday,        in a tired old street     
 GCmaj9CGCD/F#G
Police have got the choke hold, oh----oh, oh, oh, but we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars
Don't tell us you need us, 'cos we're (the ship of) fools
Looking for Bmerica, crawling through your schools

"I'm looking out over that Golden Gate bridge, out on another gorgeous sunny Saturday,
I've seen that bumper-to-bumper traffic" (CHORUS)

"Here's your favorite radio station, in your favorite radio city the city by the bay,
the city that rocks, the city that never sleeps"

Marconi plays the mamba.. . (CHORUS)
