In The City Of Chicago
By Christie Moore
Tabbed By Me! Joe Pirret

Standard Tuning - Enjoy!

Chorus :
G         D       Em
   In the city if Chicago,
G         D       Bb
   As the evening shadows fall,
C            D      Em
   There Are people dreaming,
C         D            Am
   Of the hills of Donegal.

Verse 1 :
   Am               C
   Eighteen forty - seven
   D                   Em
   Was the year it all began,
   Am              C
   Deadly pains of hunger,
   D                        Em
   Drove a million from the land.
   Am                     C
   They journeyed not for glory,
   D                   Em
   Their motive wasn't greed,
   Am          C
   A voyage of survival,
   D                 Em
   Across the stormy sea.

Chorus x1

Verse 2: Same cords as 1st verse

Some of them knew fortune,
Some of them knew fame,
More of them knew hardship,
And died working on the plane.
They spread throughout the nation,
They rode the railroad cars,
Brought their songs and music,
To ease their lonely hearts.

Chorus x1 

Finish on Am
