The Chinatown Bus
Bishop Allen
The Broken String

NO CAPO!

Intro:

B, Bsus4,

B
I caught the bus in Chinatown and slept the whole way up I-95
G#m
The driver, cut and weaved so crazy, just his luck kept him
F#
alive I guess I believed his rhythm on that morning after
B
New Year's Eve

F#


        B
And I remember Shanghai, how I wasn't sure just what was safe to
G#m
eat the chickens pecked and wandered at the barefoot ankles of the
F#
children  hawking figurines of workers smiling what's the Chinese
B
word for cheese?

F#

     B
Watched a sidewalk butcher his instinctive understanding made the
G#m
carcass snap and clarify beneath his nimble hand that held the
F#
knife so long, so many times, the handle's changed to shapes just like his
B
fingers and his
F#
palms

        B
And I, I am a passenger tonight I watch the
F#
world from
E
inside.

Interlude:

B

        B
It's 2AM in Tokyo and still too soon to call back to the
F#
people who will soon begin the day I polished off and I will
G#m
walk a mile amidst the neon lights that advertise I don't
B
know just what they
F#
sell

    B
I tell the taxi driver, "To the park Hyatt-o" And his
G#m
gloves are pristine white just like the girls I used to know would wear to
F#
dance their first cotillion, every single one of them named
B
Jennifer

F#

       B
I clutched at the St. Christopher I picked up at some country abbey
G#m
long ago when I believed he'd keep me safe and make me happy
F#
but it seems the luck he brings is not the common currency a
B
penny in
  F#
Japan

B
And I, I am a passenger tonight I watch the
F#
world from
E
inside.

Interlude:

B, Bsus4

B
And I, I am a passenger tonight I watch the
F#
world from
E
inside.

Outro:

B, Bsus4

Abm should technically be G#m, and Abm and F# should be flipped in Verse 4.
