[Verse]
* D
   I dropped a coin in the wishing well
G/B
   But it's a long time dry
** D/C#
   I watched that old Greyhound bus kick up dust
D
   As it rolls on by

[Verse]
* D
   I asked the man in the station
G/B
   He says: ''Son, just take a look around
** D/C#
   There hasn't been a train through here
D
   Since it all came tumblin' down''

[Chorus]
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        G/B
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        D/C#
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' come tumblin')
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)

[Verse]
* D
   I'm not a drinking man no more
G/B
   But this one night I got lust
** D/C#
   I've never been much of a dancer
D
   But this night I surely was

[Verse]
* D
   I made it out to the Carlton Woods,
G/B
   Slept with my ear down to the ground
** D/C#
   And in my dreams I could hear the screams
D
   As all came tumblin' down

[Chorus]
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        G/B
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        D/C#
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' come tumblin')
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)

[Verse]
* D
   The corridors are all empty
G/B
   And there's a child sitting on the stairs
** D/C#
   She's seen everything there is to see
D
   But somehow she still cares

[Verse]
* D
   We took a ride on a Ferris wheel 
G/B
   Made of glass and steel and such
** D/C#
   And now it's melting in the sun
D
   It's not worth all that much

[Verse]
* D
   I raise my hands up to the sky
G/B
   As we climb to higher ground
** D/C#
   Let's just keep on dancing
D
   Untill it all comes tumblin' down

[Chorus]
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        G/B
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        D/C#
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' come tumblin')
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)

[Break]
* D          Dadd9 Dadd4 Dadd9 D
G/B
** D/C#      Dadd9/C# Dadd4/C# Dadd9/C# D/C#
D
***

[End]
         D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        G/B
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
*        D/C#
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' come tumblin')
*        D
Tumblin' Down (come tumblin' down)
