[Verse 1]
G                  C
Well I've got her cane
G                     C D7sus2 Csus2 
Oh and Big Danny is wasted
G                          C
He said I'm the sweetest thing
G                          C D7sus2 Csus2 
You know that he's never tasted
G                         C
Mariposa's singing love songs
G                   C
All in her dark apartment
G                  C   
Fourteen floors a'birthin
G                     C
And fourteen floors a'dying

[Chorus]
G              C
Livin' in the city

I'll take you to the stairwell
G                              C D7sus2 Csus2 
And give you something I can offer
G                                C
You know the heart is not the hopeless
G                       C
The heart is a lonely hunter
G                C
Hot long summer days...
G                            C D7sus2 Csus2 
We're just sneakin' by the river
G                          C
Well, I'll lock my dreams away
G                         C
And I'll watch the city quiver

[Chorus]

Livin' in the city

G              C
Gypsy bit the dust
G                                 C
You know the shitty hat - it was poisoned
G               C
Now everybody wants
G                      C
Just a taste of what we sold him
G                  C
Standing on the rooftops
G                          C
We're just yellin' till the morning
G                        C
All surrounded by the visions
G                 C 
Of all who came before them

[Chorus]
G              C
Livin' in the city

We're just livin' in the city

Oh, livin' in the city

Well it's hard, it's hard, it's hard

Oh, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard
