"The Passenger" By Iggy and The Stooges

A great one for gigs its a real crowd pleaser and my first bit of sheet music it may be
beats of four but the  rhythm is down up down then take your fingers off and play it
stringed and then change onto next chord. I warn you this song goes on for eight 
Play it loud and with a bit of distortion. It’s mainly Am F C G and then Am F C E but it
play one of the chord changes twice to fit the verse. I put alot of time and effort into 
so please rate with a high mark.
Here are the chords in tab form if you need them.

I look through my window so bright
Am         F             C               E
I see the stars come out tonight
Am         F             C               G
I see the bright and hollow sky
Am         F             C               E
Over the cities ripped back sky
Am         F             C               G
And everything looks good tonight

Oh the passenger
Am         F             C               G
He rides and he rides (lisp on the s)
Am         F             C               E
He looks through his window 
(sing it faster at this bit)
Am         F             C               G
What does he see
Am         F             C               E
He sees the sight and hollow sky
Am         F             C               G
He sees the stars come out tonight
Am         F             C               E
He sees the cities ripped back sides
Am         F             C               G
He sees the winding ocean drive
Am         F             C               E
And everything was made for you and me
Am         F             C               G
All of it was made for you and me
Am         F             C               E
But it just belongs to you and me
Am         F             C               G
So lets take a ride and see what’s mine

Oh the passenger
Am         F             C               G
He rides and he rides
Am         F             C               E
He sees things from under glass
Am         F             C               G
He looks through his window side
Am         F             C               E
He sees the things he knows are his
Am         F             C               G
He sees the bright and hollow sky
Am         F             C               E
he sees the city sleep at night
Am         F             C               G
He sees the stars are out tonight
Am         F             C               E
And all of it is yours and mine
Am         F             C               G
And all of it is yours and mine
Am         F             C               E
So lets ride and ride and ride and ride____

[Chorus]
Am         F             C               G
Am         F             C               E

[Chorus]
Am         F             C               G
