Harlem Roulette

note: on the album it sounds like he's muting the high e string the whole time, especially the D-Dsus4 parts -Rosa

D -    xx0232
Dsus4: 000032
G:     320033
A:     x02220
Bm:    x24432
Asus4: x02230

D-Dsus4  D-Dsus4  D-Dsus4 Dsus4
Bm       D        Asus4
D-Dsus4  D-Dsus4  D-Dsus4 D

D               G              D - Dsus4  D
Unknown engines underneath the city
D                   G                   A
Steam pushing up in billows through the grates
        Bm                G              D        G
Frankie Lymon's tracking Seabreeze in a studio in Harlem
Em    A
It's 1968

D              G               D - Dsus4  D
Just a pair of tunes to hammer out
D           G                A
Everybody's off the clock by ten
      Bm        G             D          G
  The loneliest people in the whole wide world
          D                  A            D  - Dsus4  D
  Are the ones you're never going to see again

Feel so free when I hit the avenue
Nothing like a New York summer night 
Every dream's a good dream, even awful dreams are good dreams
D                  A
If you're doing it right

Remember soaring higher than the clouds
Get pretty sentimental now and then
  The loneliest people in the whole wide world
  Are the ones you're never going to see again

Bm             G                     D
And four hours North of Portland the radio flips on
         Bm              G                            A
And some no one from the future remembers that you're gone

D              G            D  -  Dsus4  D
Armies massing in the dusky distance
D              G           D  -  Dsus4  D
Ghosted in the ribbon microphone
Em             G                 D  -  Dsus4  D-Dsus4
Leave a little mark on something maybe
G                       A
Take the secret circuit home

Nothing in the shadows but the shadow hands
Reaching out to sad young frightened men
  The loneliest people in the whole wide world
  Are the ones you're never going to see again
  
  Yeah the loneliest people in the whole wide world
  are the ones you're never going to see again
