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


 EB/E
 They're getting prepared to haul a car out of the river
 F#m/EE
Noise and smoke and concrete seem to be going on forever
 B/E
Grinding gears and drivers getting high on exhaust
 F#m/ED/E
I'm thinking about the water down below and what got lost
 EB/EF#m/EEEB/E
                                     Pachinko jingle and space torpedo beams
 F#m/EE
 Comic book violence and escaping steam
 B/E
Gray suited businessmen pissing against the wall
 F#m/ED/E
Cut to crumbling guard rail, slow motion car fall
 EABF#m
 Oh Tokyo, I never can sleep in your arms
 EABF#m
 Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
 EA
 Me and all these other dice
 BF#m
 Bouncing around in the cup
 EA
Did you have to show me that accident scene
 BF#m
Didn't I get enough shaking up
 AF#m
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
