Now I'm high in the city
         E4      E
Feel the evening air

The crowds in the city
    C           G
Compete for a share
E                        E4     E
It's all so busy, a complete affair
      F#m
Down here...

      E
As I walk through marble
 D                     C#m     E
Finding my way out to daylight
F#m          E      
One drinking orange vodka
D
Someone inside here
      E 
Will give us a ride dear

B
I know a place where we both can go
E
To set our hearts on fire
B
I know the city's the only show

Bm  B9  B7/9  B7/4
Ah.....
 
E      E4       E  A  D
Can I take you for a ride
E      E4       E  A  D
I can make you satisfied
E      E4       E     A    D
All in all it's worth your while
E             E4        E     Bm
Change that frown back to a smile
   C#m
Tonight

       E
Do or die in the misty city
E4         E
All night long

A nightclub in the middle
         C          G
Tappin' time to my song
E
Catch hell for leavin'
         E4       E
They are always wrong
      F#m
Down here...

      E
As I walk through marble
 D                     C#m        E
Finding my way in the night-light
F#m        E  
Two people sit and argue
 D
Someone inside here
      E
Will give them a ride dear

B
I know a place where we both can go
E
To set our hearts on fire
B
I know the city's the only show

Bm  B9  B7/9  B7/4
Ah.....

E      E4       E  A  D
Can I take you for a ride
E      E4       E    Bm
I can make you satisfied
   C#m
Tonight

       E
Do or die in the city
         E4      E
Feel the evening air

The crowds in the city
    C           G
Compete for a share
E            E4     
It's all so busy
E            E4  
Itís all so busy

High in the city...
