                             THE OVERPASS - Gang of Youths

Tuning: EADGBE

A simple way of playing this awesome and devastating tune with one guitar. The rhythm of the intro/verse 
is a little tricky to get at first so have roughly marked it out here - have a listen to the track to hear
for it.

Intro:

Verse 1 lyrics: 


We're stranded at the lights
With extraordinary distance
Covered in a blanket
Of northern snow
I am your protection
The last line of defence
I'll try to keep my promises
To all of our friends


Pre-chorus:


                  Am
But I don’t have a coat,
                  C
And we don’t have a car.
                  F           C
Honey if you’re patient.


Chorus:

        F
Oh the overpass in Harlem shines like
 C
Neon violence in my blood
 F                                   C
So red and white, and out of our control


Verse 2 (repeat Verse bit):

You swore it on your life
You wouldn't get so tired
But I can hear you lying
Over the phone
This is such a failure
Wholly on my part
To rectify our balance with
The credit on the cards


Pre-chorus:

                  Am
But I don’t have the nerve,
                  C
But if you have the heart,
                  F           C
Honey if you’re patient.


Chorus:

        F
Oh the overpass in Harlem shines like
 C
Neon violence in my blood
 F                                   C
So red and white, and out of our control


        F
Do they drown their young in Hudson waters,
 C
Bring their children with disorders,
 F                                   C
Into the night and the dark, northern cold


Verse 3 (repeat Verse bit):

You see it in their faces
Strong against the white
Fighting with the angels
For glory and pride
And we are not peculiar
But am I not at fault?
This is the arrangement
And what I've been sold


Pre-chorus:

                  Am
But I don’t have the nerve,
                  C
But if you have the heart,
                  F           C
Honey if you’re patient.



Chorus:

        F
Oh the overpass in Harlem shines like
 C
Neon violence in my blood
 F                                   C
So red and white, and out of our control


        F
Do they drown their young in Hudson waters,
 C
Bring their children with disorders,
 F                                   C
Into the night and the dark, northern cold

        F
And it shakes and rattles through the ward,
 C
A lightning bolt across the door,
 F
Flourescent like the visions in my sleep

        F
So much braver than our present life
 C
A golden factory of light
 F
And you'll live long enough to catch its beams
