City of Electric Light  Chad VanGaalen

Tabbed by: Jordan Parsons
E-mail: moonlapse88@hotmail.com
Standard tuning.
Even though a simple song, pretty much every tab on the interwebz is wrong so here's the
right way .....All chords are 3 finger "power chords." At varies in the original
recording with over dubs and the such. Full chords don't sit right, so the actual way
using the power chords is the way to go.
Chad's an excellent canadian singer-songwriter with indie flare. I hope you enjoy this tab!

And I thought you were the moon in the sky,
R1 A G
but it turned out you were just a streetlight.
R1 A G
You were burning like a hole in the night.
R1 F C G
You were burning like a city of electric light.
R1 A G
And I thought you were the moon in the skies,
R1 A G
but it turned out you were just a pair of eyes.
R1 A G
You were lurking like a creature in the night.
R1 F C G
You were looking like a city of electric light.

Hanging by your feet.

Hanging in your sleep.

Hanging in a dream.
