Intro:
G	Em D C
G	Em D 
G	Em D C
G	Em D 	G Gsus4 G

(Verse)
		Em 	Em7/A 	D
Well we're living here in Allentown
		Am	Am7/D	G
And they're closing all the factories down
	Em7	A7		Bm	
Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
F#m/A			Em7/G
Filling out forms, standing in line
Em/A	A

(verse)
	Em 	Em7/A 	D
Well our fathers fought the Second World War
	Am	Am7/D	G
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
	Em7	A7	Bm	
Met our mothers in the USO
F#m/A			Em7/G
Asked them to dance, danced with them slow
		Em	Em/A	Em7 D G Em7/A D
And we're living here in Allentown

(Chorus)
	F/A		G/B
But the restlessness was handed down
	  Am		Am7/D  D
And it's getting very hard to stay

Em	Bm	C	D


(Intro x.5)

(Verse)
		Em 	Em7/A 	D
Well we're waiting here in Allentown
		Am	Am7/D	G
For the Pennsylvania we never found
	Em7	A7		Bm	
For the promises our teachers gave
F#m/A			Em7/G
If we worked hard, if we behaved
Em/A	A

(Verse)
	Em 	Em7/A 	D
So the graduations hang on the wall
	Am	Am7/D	G
But they never really helped us at all
	Em7	A7	Bm	
No they never taught us what was real
F#m/A			Em7/G
Iron and coke, chromium steel
Em/A	A
And we're waiting here in Allentown

(Choruse
	F/A		G/B
But they've taken all the coal from the ground
	  Am		Am7/D  D
And the union people crawled away

Em	Bm	C	D

(Intro x.5)

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

	Em 	Em7/A 	D
Well I'm living here in Allentown
	Am	Am7/D	G
And it's hard to keep a good man down
	F/A		G/B
But I won't be getting up today

Em	Bm	C	D

(Bridge Chords)

	F/A		G/B
And it's getting very hard to stay

Em	Bm	C	D

And we're living here in Allentown
