[Verse]
A  D                   A      E
    Somewhere out on that horizon
A  D                  A      E
    Out beyond the neon lights 
A  D                         A        E
    I know there must be somethin' better
A  D                    E       A          
   But there's nowhere else in sight    


A  D              A       E 
   It's survival in the city 
A  D                   A      E
   When you live from day to day 
A  D                   A         E
   City streets don't have much pity
A  D                          E           A         E      D              
   When you're down, that's where you'll stay   Wo Oh Oh Oh

[Chorus]
            A       D/A   E/A        D/A    E    A
                          In the city, oh, oh.
            A       D/A   E/A        D/A    E    A 
                          In the city 

[Verse]
A  D                A      E
   I was born here in the city
A  D               A         E 
   With my back against the wall
A  D                             A      E 
   Nothing grows and life ain't very pretty
A  D                             E       A   
   No one's there to catch you when you fall


D                   A      E
    Somewhere out on that horizon
A  D                  A      E
    Out beyond the neon lights 
A  D                         A        E
    I know there must be somethin' better
A  D                    E       A        
   And I can't stay another night
 
[Chorus]
            A       D/A   E/A        D/A    E    A
                          In the city, oh, oh.
            A       D/A   E/A        D/A    E    A 
                          In the city 

                 The End. Enjoy!

Joe Walsh also did it apart from the Eagles see The Warriors soundtrack for the gritty version

I believe the Eagles provided backing vocals for Joe's original version, and they liked the song enough to include it on one of their early albums. The live version from the Eagles' "Hell Freezes Over" reunion tour is pretty cool, ending with a slow playing of the intro riff to the Beatles' "Day Tripper."
Thanks for posting the chords.
