Standard tuning: E B G D A E
Capo on 3rd fret

Bass intro
E5     G5 E5

    E5   G5 E5                  E5  G5 E5
The Harlem mammas they are laughing
They call me punk rock think they're cute
The pizza boys they keep on starin'
I guess they finally made it off their stoop

E5                    G5
I don't even know and I don't even care x3
Oh yeah

      G5         C5
Since I've been hanging round
      G5         C5
Machines go up and down
      G5         C5          D5  
Spray paint gospel on the beat
    G5       C5
Another billboard reads
    G5       C5
Come to Miami Beach
    G5       C5                D5
A man sells pretzels in the heat
Riding on the subway

E5   G5 E5

Saints and sinners sweepstakes winners
Nine to five their smoking gun
Jazzman Jimmy's busked a million
Sometimes plays Duke Ellington for fun

I don't even know and I don't even care x3
Oh yeah

I've been hanging round
In the underground
One day I saw you in your seat
Past the transit cops
A three-card monty box
If I only had the guts to speak
Riding on the subway

Mother told me yesterday
     G5                               D5
The things that God would never say before
       C5                         G5                          D5
We'll hang around the radio and listen to the status quo go on
I'm all right until Sunday night when

I keep going down
Took the local round
A soul confession in my sleep
Ain't no wishing well
Underneath the El
I still hope someday we might meet
Riding on the subway
