Babylon

 Friday night I'm going nowhere
 GDG
 All the lights are changing green to red     
 D
 Turning over TV stations
 GDG
 Situations running through my head       
 D
 Looking back through time
 G
You know it's clear that I've been blind
 DG
I've been a fool  
 D
 To open up my heart
 GDGEm
To all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule       

 D
 Saturday I'm running wild
 GDG
 And all the lights are changing red to green  
 D
 Moving through the crowd I'm pushing
 GDG
 Chemicals all rushing in  my bloodstream       
 D
 Only wish that you were here
 G
You know I'm seeing it so clear
 DG
I've been afraid      
 D
 To show you how I really feel
 GDG
 Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made  

 DA
 If you want it  
 Em
Come and get it 
 F#mD
Crying out loud   
 A
The love that I was
 Em
Giving you was
 GD
Never in doubt 
 A
Let go of your heart
 Em
Let go of your head
 AD
And feel it now 
 A
Let go of your heart
 Em
Let go of your head
 AA7
And feel it now

Babylon,

Babylon,

Babylon       

Sunday all the lights of London
Shining sky is fading red to blue

Kicking through the Autumn leaves
And wondering where it is you might be going to
Turning back for home
You know I'm feeling so alone
I can't believe
Climbing on the stair
I turn around to see you smiling there
In front of me

If you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

hi chords are wrong every one dose babylon on chordie like this u can here its not right try this its like a sort of a D but i dont know the chord name so ill exsplain 

2nd fret G AND B string like an em but down then thumb the F base E 2nd fret
now try u will know what the song is straight away oh and in the choras dont sit on the em 2 counts it should be a dodge F but use a G and sing over it and u will hide the slightly wrong chord no one will notice try and see dave123

Hi, just pressed the chopro button and it does actually say capo 1st fret!  I dunno if this makes it closer to Dave123's version, but it certainly works.  Actually, it works without the capo anyway - probably just a slightly different key.

If you're like me - female - and your voice can't actually stoop that low, haha, then you can do it in a different key.

The chord is called a Dmaj7 -XX0222- and the "signature" hammer-on note you hear through out the entire song is him hammering on the 3d fret 2nd string.. while doing the Dmaj7. then go to G  -- Note to everyone.. If your not sure of a chord or song. dont post it. your just teaching other ppl how to do it wrong
