Rocketown  Michael W. Smith

Intro 3x: A E D E
[A]A Friday [E]night [D]affair
Out in the [E]city [A]heat
Always a [E]party th[D]ere
Along the [E]sordid [F]street
And it was [C]guarant[G]eed
The place to [D]be was [A]Rocketown [E] [D] [E]
[A]The drinks were [E]two for [D]one
Inside the [E]crowded b[A]ars
The girls would [E]make their [D]run
Down on the [E]boulev[F]ard
It was the i[C]dol p[G]lace
We lived the [D]ways of [A]Rocketown [E] [A] [G]
[F]Hang around by the [C/E]street light [Dm]
In the heart of the [E]night life [A] [E] [D] [E] [A] [E] [D] [E]
[A]There came a [E]certain m[D]an
A stranger [E]to the c[A]rowd
We didn't [E]unders[D]tand
What he was [E]all a[F]bout
He walked a [C]different [G]pace
So out of [D]place in [A]Rocketown [E] [D] [E]
[A]They made a [E]fool of [D]him
They teased him [E]when he's [A]speak
But when they [E]knocked him [D]down
He turned the [E]other c[F]heek
He told me [C]I could [G]find
A life outs[D]ide of R[A]ocketown [E] [A] [G]
[F]Hang around by the [C/E]street light[Dm]
In the heart of the [E]night life
[F]What was his mission
[E]Where [E/G#] was he [Am]going
[F]Why was his heart light a[G]lways g[G#]lowing?
[F]All I was missing
[E]He s[E/G#]tood there h[Am]olding
W[F]hat was his secret
G G#º A E D E A E D E
Could I know it?
[A]Some didn't [E]like him [D]near
Some laughed and [E]turned a[A]way
But me, I l[E]onged to [D]hear
All that he [E]had to s[F]ay
He had a [C]peace of m[G]ind
I couldn't [D]find in R[A]ocketown [E] [A] [G]
[F]And when I reached down [C/E]inside me [Dm]
I could feel the empt[E]iness
[A]He said it's [E]in the h[D]eart
This change that [E]comes to [A]be
Now he had d[E]one his p[D]art
The rest was [E]up to [F]me
As we were [C]standing t[G]here
He said a prayer[D] for R[A]ocketown [E] [A] [G]
As we were s[C]tanding t[G]here
He said a prayer[D] for R[A]ocketown [E] [A] [G]
He walked off [C]silent[G]ly
And prayed for [D]me
And R[A]ocketown... [E] [D] [E] [A] [E] [D] [E]
