[Intro]
G D C C
G D C C
G D C C
C C


[Verse 1]
      G                    G    
From coast to coast, from dark to bright
         D                     D
You can search for truth in a pool of light
C                 C             
  Let it keep you up all night
G                  D
  ‘til you fall asleep 
          G                          G    
You can treat your neighbour like a front door mat
         D              D
As you fluctuate like thermostat
            C              C             
While you swim the sewers holdin’ you back with their 
G                 D   D 
  water at your feet
C C C C 
Oooh 



[Verse 2]
         G           G    
You can wage a war, cast a stone
 D                       D
Hoist your flag upon a chicken bone
C                            C             
  Patrol the streets with a megaphone 
G                 D
  Every day you breathe
              G                    G    
Shouting, “Christ don’t live in an angry heart,”
    D              D
Or some such crap no-one’s smart 
   C            C 
enough to recognise as crap 
G                 D    D
– might as well agree



[Chorus]
                 C   C
An' that’s the truth,  
         C              C                G   G
but the day it goes on sale it becomes a lie
                 C   C
And that’s the truth. 
         C                  C              D   D
You can turn your head or look it in the eye
    C                C  
An honest man won’t sell it: 
               D                D
He knows the truth it has an edge
        C                     C          C
Be like   trying to sell the sunset baby 
C                   G D C C G D C C G D C C
   From the Brooklyn Bridge. Bridge. Bridge.
C C G D C C G D C C C C



[Verse 3]
         G                       G    
You can save the tiger, you can kill the fox
          D                        D
You can trash the ground, you can call the cops.
C                 C             
  Push a button when it stops and 
G               D
  Start it up again
          G               G    
You can flip a new leaf, turn a new channel
          D                  D
Stick a brand-new wick in a burned out candle
 C                 C             
Never let nothing you can’t handle get 
G                   D  D
  Underneath your skin
C C C C 
Oooh 


[Verse 4]
         G                 G    
You can beat the odds, protect your interest
  D                     D
Choose your choice in a TV set, or
C                   C
  Try to find some common step 
            G               D
Between a slam dance and a waltz
         G                    G    
You can turn your back on the CIA
          D             D
Strike a deal so big nobody gets paid
   C                    C             
Except those hired to close the deal 
          G              D
And make sure it wasn’t false


[Chorus]
                 C   C
An' that’s the truth,  
         C              C                G   G
but the day it goes on sale it becomes a lie
                 C   C
And that’s the truth. 
         C                  C              D   D
You can turn your head or look it in the eye
    C                C  
An honest man won’t sell it: 
               D                D
He knows the truth it has an edge
        C                     C          C
Be like   trying to sell the sunset baby 
C                   G D C C G D C C G D C C
   From the Brooklyn Bridge. Bridge. Bridge.
                 G D C C G D C C G D C C
From the Brooklyn Bridge. Bridge. Bridge.
                 G D C C G D C C G D C C
From the Brooklyn Bridge. Bridge. Bridge.
                 G D C C G D C C G D C C
From the Brooklyn Bridge. Bridge. Bridge.
