Ruins  Cat Stevens

Ruins by Cat Stevens
INTRO: D/F# G Gadd9 (x8)
[D/F#] It's so quiet in the ruins,[G] [D/F#] walking through the old town,[G]
[D/F#] Stones crumbling un[G]der my feet, I see s[D/F#]moke for miles around,[G]
[D/F#] Oh, it's enough to [G]make you weep,[D/F#] all that remains of the [G]main street,
[D/F#] Up in the park on [G]Sunday, [D/F#] dogs chasing, and the c[G]hildren playing,
[F] Old man with his [C]head down, [F] can't see nothing [C]more a[A]round‚?¶, no!
[D/F#] [G] But he remembers how it [D/F#]used to be, [G] back in the old days,
[Dsus4] So nice to see you coming [G]back in this town a[Em]gain,
It's nice to see a friendly [C]face come peeping [G]through,
Having tea i[A]n the afternoon,
[Dsus4] So nice to see you coming [G]back in this town a[Em]gain[C] [G] [A]
D/F# G Gadd9 (x3)
[D/F#] Ah, but it's all changed, [G] [D/F#] Winter turned on [G]Man,
[D/F#] Came down one day when no [G]one was looking, and it s[D/F#]tole away the land,[G]
[D/F#] People running scared,[G] losing hands[D/F#], dodging shadows of [G] falling sand,
[D/F#] Buildings standing like [G] empty shells, and no[D/F#]body helping [G]no one else,
[F] Young child with his [C]hands high,[F] ain't able to see no [C]reason [A]why‚?¶, no!
[D/F#] [G] But he remembers how it [D/F#]used to be,[G]
[Dsus4] So nice to see you coming [G]back in this town a[Em]gain,
It's nice to see a friendly [C]face come peeping t[G]hrough,
You better know w[A]hat you're going through, now!
[A] You came back to f[B7]ind your home is a [D]black horizon,
That [E7]you don't recognise,[A] evil destruction has [B7]taken everything,
[D] You'd better walk on the [E7]side, while you're still [A]walking,
Just keep on [B7]walking on [D]down the street,
Keep your dis[E7]tance from the people you [A]meet,
Oh, Lord, and you'd [B7]better watch your eyes, 'cause, if [D]smoke gets in them,
Baby, [E7]you won't rise again!
[Dsus4] So nice to see you coming [G]back in this town a[Em]gain![C] [G] [A]
D/F# G Gadd9 (x4)
[D/F#] Where's it leading t[G]o? [D/F#] Freedom at what [G]cost?
[D/F#] People needing [G]more, and more, and it's all g[D/F#]etting lost[G],
[D/F#] I want [G]back! [D/F#] I want [G]back!
[D/F#] Back to the time when the [G]earth was green,
There was [D/F#] no high walls, and the [G]sea was clean!
[F] Don't stop that s[C]un to shine, [F] it's not [C]yours or [A]mine‚?¶, [D/F#]no![G] [D]
