Capo 1

A- 002220
E- 022100
E6- 046600
Aadd9- 577600
Badd11- 799800

For those who aren't familiar with that^ little chord chart there, from left to right
each number represents each string (EADGBE) and the number there is the fret you will be
putting your fingers in. Also a helpful hint: Aadd9 and Badd11 have the exact same 
finger formation, Badd11 is just 2 frets higher.  So you can easily slide back and forth between
the two.

Intro E6 E Badd11 Aadd9(x2)


         E6                    E
Did you hear of the city on a hill

         Badd11        Aadd9
Said one old man to the other

                 E6                             E
It once shined bright and it would be shining still

        Badd11                       Aadd9
But they all started turning on each other

             E6                              E
You see the poets thought the dancers were shallow

         Badd11                         Aadd9
And the soldiers thought the poets were weak

          E6                            E
And the elders saw the young ones as foolish

        Badd11                            Aadd9
And the rich man never heard the poor man speak

            A            E
And one by one they ran away

          Badd11                          Aadd9
With their made up minds to leave it all behind

         A              E                   Badd11
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill

                E6 E Badd11 Aadd9
The city on a hill

(verse 2)(same chord pattern as verse one)

But it was the rhythm of the dancers

      E6            Badd11
that gave the poets life

            Aadd9                               E6                Badd11
It was the spirit of the poets that gave the soldiers strength to fight

           Aadd9                                E6            Aadd11
It was the fire of the young ones, it was the wisdom of the old

             E                          E6      Badd11  Aadd11
It was the story of the poor man that needed be told
