Intro:
|| F# ||

F#                      B
It started in basements
                        F#
And it started in sheds
                         B
It started in backyards
                          F#  E/B
And was hidden under beds
                   B
I turned on the TV
                             F#  E/B
Don't believe a word they say
                    B
We can't stay here
                       F#
And we can't get away


B                  F#      B
 There's a riot on Sunset
                          F#   B 
And fires burn in the park
            F#            E/B [Note: On the B-snare 9th fret becomes 10th]B
The sun has set my friend

And California's dark


||A F#||
     
                        B
And over the screaming
                        F#
I heard a clear voice
                         B
I looked at my choices
                     F#  E/B
And I made a choice
                   B
Smoke and ashes
                       F#  E/B
Tonight hide the stars
                                  B
The stop lights are red now, love
                           F#
We've come for what's ours



B                  F#      B
 There's a riot on Sunset
                          F#   B 
And fires burn in the park
            F#            E/B [Note: On the B-snare 9th fret becomes 10th]B
The sun has set my friend

And California's dark

|| A || F#5 ||

F#5
Come stand among the rattlesnakes

At the side of the desert road

And close your eyes and listen
B5                         F#5
To the music hard and cold

Tonight the moon is blackened

Tonight the doors are shut

Behind the shuttered windows
  B5                         F#5         
We pray the sun will come up
F#
For something walks across these fields

For which there is no name

You might have heard different
B                            F#
But I was there when it came

It will start with a spark

And a great fire will grow
                          B
Don't know how I know it
                 F#         
But I just know


                         B
There's a riot on Sunset
                           F#  B
And fires burn in the park
             F#           
The sun sets everywhere
       B                          F#  B
And the whole damn country's dark
                  F#      B
There's a riot on Sunset
                           F#  B
And fires burn in the park
            F#             E/B [ Again with the 10th fret on the B ] B
The sun has set my friend
                       || A F# || B B A F# ||                       
And California's dark
