Downtown

Petula Clark





Verse 1:

 EA/EB/E
        When you're alone and life is making you lonely
 E
        You can always go
 A/EB/E
        Downtown

When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Downtown

 EC#m
        Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
 EC#m
        Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
 G#m7
        How can you lose

 AB/AAB/AAB/AA
        The lights are much brighter there
 B/AAB/AF#7
        You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go

Verse 2:

 EEmaj7A/EB/E
        Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
 EEmaj7
        There are movie shows
 A/EB/E
        Downtown

Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close
Downtown

Just listen to the rhythm of the gentle Bossa Nova
You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go

Where all the lights are bright

Waiting for you tonight

You're gonna be all right now
