CAPO 1

C/B is just C with the root of B. (X22010)

INTRO:
Am Dm G
C C/B
Am Dm G

  Am                                    Dm
As I walk through the streets of my new city
   G                             C
my back feeling much better, I suppose
C/B  Am                      Dm
I've reclaimed the use of my imagination
    G                               C
for better or for worse, I've yet to know
C/B   Am                              Dm
but I always knew you'd be the one to understand me,
               G                                C  C/B
I guess that's why it took so long to get things right.
Am
Suddenly I'm lost
       Dm
On my street

On my block
   G
Oh why, Oh why
   C               F
Oh why haven't you been there for me?
          G                 C         C/B
Can't you see, I'm losing my mind this time?
Am                Dm
This time it's for real, I can see

G 
All the trees are turning red
    G 
The beggars near bodegas grin at me
G 
I think they want something
  G 
I close my eyes, I tell myself to breathe

G      C
and be calm.

Be calm.
           F                          C
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
       Am          Dm              F      
Well I know that it gets so hard sometimes.
   G
Be calm.


  Am                              Dm
I'm scared that everyone is out to get me.
       G                             C  C/B 
"These days before you speak to me you pause."
  Am                             Dm
"I always see you looking out your window."
    G                                        C  C/B
"After all, you lost your band, you left your mom."
    Am                       Dm
Now every single crack, every pain that I pass,
     G                                C  C/B
says I should either leave or pick it up
    Am
But with every single buck I've made
    Dm
I'm saddled with bad luck that came
    G
the moment I was baptized
G
or when I found out one day I'm gonna die
G
if only I could find my people or my place in life
G
then when they come to 'carolin'
G
so loud, so bright, the theremin
G
will lead us to a chorus
G
where we'll all rejoice and sing a song that goes:

      C
Oh be calm.

Be calm.
           F                          C
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
  Am          Dm              F
I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
   G
Be calm.
           C                              Em
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
              Am
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
   Am       Dm  
and e-very--thing's wrong
        F                Dm
It just gets so hard sometimes
   G
Be calm.

  Am      G    Em       Dm
I don't remember much that night,
     C        G       C       G
Just walking, thinking fondly of you
 Am     G      Em      Dm    C
Thinking how the worst is yet to come
G               C      G     C
From that street corner came a song
    C           F 
And I can't remember the man,
   G                 C  G
The panhandler or his melody.
    Am     G          Em   Dm    G
The words exchanged had far exceeded any change I'd given thee. 

      C
Oh be calm.

Be calm.
           F                          C
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
  Am          Dm              F
I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
   G
Be calm.
           C                              Em
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
              Am
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
   Am              Dm  
and e-very--thing's wrong
        F                Dm
It just gets so hard sometimes
   G
Be calm.
   Am
Be calm.

For the part where he goes almost double time, the "all the treetops turning red" part, try a bass walk-up like this: F, G, A, C.
