New York Blackout
Soul Asylum
(Dave Pirner)

  C        G        C        F        C        G        C

         C       G
When you chew my ear off
C              F
Try and let me know
         C          G               C
You will never get another piece of me
           C        G
Cause in a New york Blackout
C               F
Things go kinda slow
           C                   G                   C
And you'll miss the things you never thought you'd see

        G             C
Theres still so many things I want to be
    F                  C            G
Sometimes I just don't even want to sleep

     C        G
In a new york blackout
C              F
Its so hard to see
        C               G             C
All the angels that are looking after me

    G                   C
The lice fell soft the water in your eyes
        F               C               G
And the dead lift there heads and come alive

    C            G                   Bb
And I may never escape this darkened city
    C              G                Bb
But still I try to find you in this blackout

Break: Bb F x2

Where its warm inside
And always open late
And the doors to hell look just like heavens gate
And you never know
What going on inside
Till you step out in the cold and seal your fate

You might just stop in and say hello
But you have much more important places to go
Make sure you let everybody know

And I may never enlighten this darkened city
And still I'm trying to find you in this blackout

In a new york black out
You might think I'm gone
But I'll wake up on the front steps of your door
