Well we're living here in Allentown
And they're closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
Filling out forms, standing in line

/ Em7 A D - / Am7 D G - / Em7 A Bm F#m / Em D Asus4 A /

Well our fathers fought the Second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Met our mothers in the USO
Asked them to dance, danced with them slow
And we're living here in Allentown

/ " / " / " / " / Em7 A D - /

   But the restlessness was handed down
   And it's getting very hard to stay

   / F G C - / Am7 D Em G C D C - Em - C - Em - C - GC G /

Well we're waiting here in Allentown
For the Pennsylvania we never found
For the promises our teachers gave
If we worked hard, if we behaved

So the graduations hang on the wall
But they never really helped us at all
No they never taught us what was real
Iron and coke, chromium steel
And we're waiting here in Allentown

   But they've taken all the coal from the ground
   And the union people crawled away

Every child has a pretty good shot
To get at least as far as their old man got
But something happened on the way to that place
They threw an American flag in our face

/ F - G F / - - G Bb / F - G F / - - G C - Em - C - Em - C - GC G /

Well I'm living here in Allentown
And it's hard to keep a good man down
But I won't be getting up today

/ Em7 A D - / F G C - / Am7 D Em G C D C - Em - C - Em - /

And it's getting very hard to stay
And we're living here in Allentown

/ Am7 D Em G C D / Am7 D GC G /

A little tough to deceifer some of the chord placements. After trying a few times, I eventually got it. Not bad, my friend.
