""; ?> Tokyo by Bruce Cockburn - guitar chords, guitar tabs and lyrics - chordie

 They're getting prepared to haul a car out of the river
Noise and smoke and concrete seem to be going on forever
Grinding gears and drivers getting high on exhaust
I'm thinking about the water down below and what got lost
                                     Pachinko jingle and space torpedo beams
 Comic book violence and escaping steam
Gray suited businessmen pissing against the wall
Cut to crumbling guard rail, slow motion car fall
 Oh Tokyo, I never can sleep in your arms
 Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
 Me and all these other dice
 Bouncing around in the cup
Did you have to show me that accident scene
Didn't I get enough shaking up
Still I'm going to miss   you
Dragon of good fortune struggles with the trickster fox
Energy and patience and the power of the buck
Tonight I'm flying headlong to meet the dark red edge of dawn
I know somebody will be crying and somebody will be gone
Oh Tokyo, I never can sleep in your arms
Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
Me and all these other dice
Bouncing around in the cup
Did you have to show me that accident scene
Didn't I get enough shaking up
Still I'm going to miss you
