My City Of Ruins  Bruce Springsteen



[G]    [Em]     [C]    [G]    [G]  [D]  [Em]   [D]  [C]  [G]         
[G]There's a blood red ci[Em]rcle on the c[C]old dark g[G]round
And the rain [D]is f[Em]alli[D]ng d[C]own[G]
The church doors thrown [Em]open I can he[C]ar the organ's s[G]ong
But the cong[D]re[Em]gati[D]on's g[C]one[G]
My city of ru[Em]ins [C]   [G]
My city of ru[Em]ins [C]   [G]
[G]Now the sweet veils of m[Em]ercy drift through the e[C]vening t[G]rees
Young men on the corner [D]like [Em]scattered l[D]eaves  [C]      [G]
The boarded up wi[Em]ndows, the em[C]pty stree[G]ts
While my brother's [D]down [Em]on his kn[D]ees [C]   [G]
My city of ruins[Em]      [C]   [G]
My city of ruins[Em]      [C]   [G]
Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
          [D]  [Em]    [D]  [C]   [G]                                                   
Come on ri--------se up

(repeat intro)

[G]Now there's tears on the[Em] pillow darling w[C]here we [G]slept
And you took my [D]heart[Em] when you l[D]eft  [C]        [G]
Without your sweet kiss[Em] my soul is [C]lost, my f[G]riend
Now tell me how do[D] I be[Em]gin aga[D]in?  [C]     [G]

My city's in[Em] ruins[C]   [G]
My city's in[Em] ruins[C]   [G]
[G]Now with these h[Em]ands,  w[C]ith these h[G]ands
[G]With these h[Em]ands,  w[C]ith these h[G]ands
(I pray Lord)
[G]With these h[Em]ands,  w[C]ith these h[G]ands
(I pray for the strength Lord)
With these hands, with these hands
(I pray for the faith Lord)
With these hands, with these hands
(I pray for Your love Lord)
With these hands, with these hands
(I pray for the lost Lord)
With these hands, with these hands
(I pray for the world Lord)
With these hands, with these hands

Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
Come on [Em]rise [C]up!  Come on r[D]ise [G]up!
          [D]  [Em]    [D]  [C]   [G]                                                   
Come on ri--------se up
