Detroit '67  Sam Roberts

This song is a great song by Sam Roberts, And i couldnt find a guitar tab for it
anywhere, so i decided to put the chords for this song. Enjoy. p.s this is also
my first tab so dont be too rough haha
Intro: C F C F C F G F (x4)
I went [C]walking, at street level, Feeling strange, and disheveled
Past the [F]abattoir and the glory holes Like a film noire,
in the starring role
To the side [C]streets, kept my nose clean
Tasted beautiful, tasted obscene Singing,
[C]oh [F]oh [C]oh [F]oh [C]oh [F]oh [G]oh [F]oh [C]oh
[F]Oh [C]oh [F]oh [C]oh [F]oh [G]oh [F]oh
This is [C]Detroit, see the skyline
A commotion on the assembly line
Raise a [F]glass to the Ambassador
As she's moving you to the dance floor
[G]Does anyone here tonight remember those times?
Can anyone here tonight just tell me what they felt like?
In The Space do a C Chord with an added note on the third fret
of the high E string.
[Am]So many years, [Em]so many lives
[Am]These are the [G]streets where they collide[C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [G] [F]
[Am]From Jimmy Hoffa [Em]to Cadillac
[Am]Some look ahead, [G]I'm going [F]back
[F]Cause I'm just looking for some sounds
To ease the vice that squeezes us every day
Fill With C Chord With added note earlier
[C]This was Motown, this was New France
Where the Chippewa did the firedance
[F]That was long ago
This is here and now
But the memory still remains somehow Singing
[C]oh [F]oh [C]oh [F]oh [C]oh [F]oh [G]oh [F]oh [C]oh
[F]Oh [C]oh [F]oh [C]oh [F]oh [G]oh [F]oh
I can't [C]tell you how this old story ends
I can't touch you now, like they did back then
Past the [F]child's play with the jump rope
Hear the gun play, it's a tightrope
[G]Does anyone here tonight remember those times?
Can anyone here tonight just tell me what they felt like?
[G]Does anyone here tonight remember those times?
Somebody call the riot police, there's trouble down on 12th Street
Ending: Either C F C F C F G F (x8)
or Special C Chord you saw earlier for the rest of the song.
