Capo 3rd fret

Verse I:
Sirens [D] ring,   shots rang [A] out,
A stranger [Em] cries,...    screams out [G] loud,
I had my [D] world,...    strapped against my [A] back,
I held my [Em] hands,...   never  knew  [G] how  to act,

chorus:Well the [D] same black line that was drawn on you
was [A] drawn on me,       and now its drawn me [Em] in,
6th avenue [G] heartache

Verse II:
Below  [D] me,      was a homeless [A] man,
I'm singing [Em] songs,...     I knew com-[G] plete,
On the steps [D] alone,....    his guitar in [A] hand,
his 50 [Em] years,....     he stood where he [G] stands,

Repeat Chorus Twice

Verse III:
Now I'm walking [D] home,...    on those [A] streets,
the river [Em] winds,....    move my  [G]  feet
The subway [D] steam,....    like silhouettes in [A] dreams,
Stood by [Em] me,...... [stood by me]  just like moon-[G] beams,

Repeat Chorus Twice

Verse IV:
Look out the [D] window,   down upon that [A] street,
Gone like at [Em] midnight,   was, that [G] man,
but I see his [D] six strings,..   layed against that [A] wall,
and all his [Em] things,.... they all look so [G] small,
I got my fingers [D] crossed,...  on  a shooting [A] star
just like [Em] me,.....    just moved,  [G]   just moved on

Chorus: (repeat)

Now you can also play with these chords a little bit to spice it up a little. It sounds
good when you get it down.

< D (varied) > < A (varied) >


This in more of the real strum pattern:


But I like to add a little touch of my own.

Also, I've been playing with the solo in the beginning. I know i'm a little off but if
have any better ways to play it, please email me at

These are writtin without the Capo in mind so 10th fret is 10th fret.
