Fly on a Windshield  Genesis

Genesis, "Fly on a Windshield/Broadway Melody of 1974".
Tabbed by Charles Seymour .
Fly on a Windshield/Broadway Melody of 1974
Intro: alternating between Em and G
There's [G]something solid f[Em]orming in the air,
And the wall of [G]death is lowered in Times Square.[Em]
[C]No-one seems [Em]to care,
They carry [Am]on as if nothing was there.[Em]
[B/G]The wind is blowing harder now,[G5]
Gadd9 Em (VII)
Blowing dust into my eyes.
The dust [B/G]settles on my skin,[G5]
Gadd9 Em (VII)
Making a crust I cannot move in
Em(XII) Em/maj7 Em6 Em/maj7
And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway.
Instrumental Interlude: alternating Em and G for many measures, then
[F#] [G] [F#] [G]  
[B] [C] [B] [C] [D] [Eb] [D] [Eb]  
[F]Echoes of the Broadway Everglades,[F+]
With her mythical[Bbm] madonnas still walk[Db]ing in their shad[F]es:
[F]Lenny Bruce, declares a truce and plays his other hand.[F+]
[Bbm]Marshall Mcluhan, casual viewin', head burie[Db]d in the sand.[F]
[F]Sirens on the rooftops [F7]wailing, but there's no ship[Bbm] saili[Db]ng.[Eb]
[F]Groucho, with his movies trailin[F7]g, stands alone with his [Bm]punchline[Eb]
(as above except for last line)
Klu Klux Klan serve hot soul food and the band plays 'In the Mood'
The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand, there's a smell of
peach blossom and bitter almonde.
Caryl Chessman sniffs the air and leads the parade, he knows
in a scent, you can bottle all you made.
There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes, smiling at the
majorettes smoking Winston Cigarettes.
And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home
w[Bb]ith needl[C]es; needles [D]and pins.
D (X) C (VIII) Bb (VI) C (VIII) D (X)
