Em
Sadr City blues, seen it on the news

Kids today get their lights turned down
G         Am
You gotta shine on

Shine on

Sadr City blues, there is no excuse
Right your name down, get your name crossed out
You gotta shine on
Shine on

Sitting at the back on your very own
This ain't Jack or ain't wack, this is real life
You gotta shine on
That's right, shine on

          C                      E
You can't wait for the Sun to be born
                      D
To hold you, keep you warm
                   Am
The desert has its ice storm
         C                        E
It's too late for the flowers to arrive
                              D
On the road of the cross the knives
                        Am
When you're looking for just war

           Em                         Am
You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
   C                   B7        Em
To make it through the Sadr City blues
           Em                         Am
You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
   C                   B7        Em
To make it through the Sadr City blues

Oh, the work is never done burying your son
The television lights our lives
You got to shine on
Shine on

Sitting in the back on your very own
You get divorced over the telephone
You got to shine on
Shine on

You can't wait for the Sun to be born
To hold, to keep you warm
The desert has its ice storm
It's too late for the flowers to arrive
On the road of the cross and knives
When you're looking for just war

You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
To make it through the Sadr City blues
You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
To make it through the Sadr City blues

Mid Section;
| Em / B7 / | G / Am / | G / B7 / | Em / / / | x4

You can't wait for the sun to be born
To hold, keep you warm
The desert has it's ice storm
It's too late for the flowers to arrive
On the road of the cross and knives
When you're looking for just war, just war

You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
To make it through the Sadr City blues
You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
To make it thorugh the Sadr City blues

You got to shine on, you got to shine on
To make it through the Sadr City blues
You got to shine, shine, shine, shine on
To make it through the Sadr City blues
