A                                     C
There's no using the stairs tonight.  Black box will take you right
G                                            A
Many floors down where the earth is fire and molten
A                               C
And the bell man tips his hat.  You try not to notice that
G                                      D
His tail is long, his legs are made of wood

Pre-Chs:
C               G                         D
And no one here knows your name.  And you won't be coming home.

             A    C        A
You're going down   in the black elevator.
    G                              D
You tried to drink the water.  The water wouldn't save
             A    C        A
You're going down   in the black elevator.
       G              D             A (with Riff A on banjo)
You're rowing up that river tonight

C            G                   D                      A

C              G                      D                  A
You'll ever be mine in there.  With a hammer coming down
C             G                        D                  A
And you ever work the earth.  And your hands turn to stone
C            G                        D
No one here knows your name.  And you won't be coming home

Chs:
             A    C        A
You're going down   in the black elevator.

You're going down   in the black elevator.

You're rowing up that river tonight
              G              D             A
I said you're rowing up that river tonight
              G              D             A
I said you're rowing up that river tonight
