C
I would love to be the lucky one on Chill Avenue
Am
Who could keep your hear warm when ice has turned it blue
G
But with the beggin' sleeping losers as they turn in for the night
C
I'm looking back for home and I can see the lights

C
I should be jumpin' shoutin' that I made it all this way
Am
>From Camden Town Station to 44th and 8th
G
Not many make it this far and many say we're great
C
But just like them we walk on an' we can't escape our fate

Am                 F      G
Can't you hear the sighing
C                  F
Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue
     G                         Csus  C
Both say they needed something new

CHORUS
       C
So I'm standing at the gates of the West
       Em
I burn money at the lights of the sign
		 F     G	       C
The city casts a shadow of the perfect crime

I'm standing at the gates of the East
          Em
I take my pulse and the pulse of my friend
		 F      G               C
The city casts a shadow, will I see you again?


The immigrants an' remnants of all the glory years
Are clustered around the bar again for another round of beers
Little Richard's in the kitchen playing spoons and plates
He's telling the waitress he's great

Ah say I know somewhere back'n'forth in time
Out on the dustbowls, deep in the roulette mine
Or in a ghetto cellar only yesterday
There's a move into the future for the U.S.A.

I hear them crying
Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue
Both say they needed something new

CHORUS

C Em Em Am Am F F
C Em Em Am Am F F
C Em Em Am Am F F  C

(with chords from chorus)
Standing at the gates of the West
In the shadow again
Standing at the gates of the West
In the shadow again
In the shadow again
