Verse 1:
W[E]hen you're alone and life is [A/E]making you [B/E]lonely
You can a[E]lways go
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Just l[E]isten to the music of the t[C#m]raffic in the city
L[E]inger on the sidewalk where the n[C#m]eon signs are pretty
[Abm7]How can you lose
T[A]he l[B/A]ights a[A]re [B/A]much b[A]rig[B/A]hter t[A]here
[B/A]You c[A]an [B/A]forg[F#7]et all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go
Chorus 1:
[E/B] Dow[Emaj7/B]ntown
[A/B]Things'll be g[B]reat when you're
[E/B] Dow[Emaj7/B]ntown
[A/B]You'll find a pl[B]ace for sure
[E/B] Dow[Emaj7/B]ntown
[A/B]Everything's wa[B]iting for you
Verse 2:
D[E]on't hang [Emaj7]around and let your p[A/E]roblems surr[B/E]ound you
There are m[E]ovie [Emaj7]shows
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close
Just listen to the rhythm of the gentle Bossa Nova
You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over
Happy again
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go
Chorus 2:
Where all the lights are bright
Waiting for you tonight
You're gonna be all right now
