Hawkwind - High Rise

---

Essentially the whole song is done on the following 8-bar progression:

  [F][F][Cm][Cm,Dm][Eb][Eb,F][Gm][Dm]

where the chord change in the 4th and 6th bars is on the 4th beat of the bar.

Note I've only put in the chord at the start of each bar below.

[F]Flat block [F]
Of [Cm]two dimensions [Cm]
[Eb]Neon totem pole [Eb]to the sky
Keeping [Gm]scores of people [Dm]stacked up so high 
A[F]bove the ground [F]
But all they can [Cm]hear is the sound [Cm]
Of the [Eb]wind in the an[Eb]tennae
It's a [Gm]human zoo
A [Dm]suicide machine

[F]High rise [F]
Living in a [Cm]high rise [Cm]

Living in a [Cm]high rise [Cm]
[Eb]High rise [Eb]
All stacked up in a [Gm]high rise block [Dm]

[F]Childhood [F]
Of [Cm]concrete cube shaped [Cm]
A [Eb]flypaper stuck with [Eb]human life
[Gm]Caged up rage
[Dm]Swarming all the time
[F]Tear out the telephones
[F]Rip up the pages of di[Cm]rectories
And [Cm]wreck all these
High speed [Eb]lifts and ele[Eb]vators
Be a [Gm]sabotage rebel with[Dm]out a cause

[F]High rise [F]
Living in a [Cm]high rise [Cm]
[Eb]High rise [Eb]
Living in a [Gm]high rise [Dm]

Of [Cm]human blood shape [Dm]
[Eb]Tentacles of [Eb]human gore
[Gm]Spread out on the pavement from the [Dm]99th floor 
Well [F]somebody said that he [F]jumped
But we [Cm]know he was pushed [Cm]
He was [Eb]just like you [Eb]might have been
On the [Gm]99th floor of a [Dm]suicide machine

[F]High rise [F]
Living in a [Cm]high rise [Cm]
[Eb]High rise [Eb]
Living in a [Gm]high rise [Dm]

Live they play it in E, and the chords seem to be simpler. Try cycling E Bm D F#. Its the walking bass that makes this one.
