...HEART OF THE CITY... by Nick Lowe
-----------------------.............

*Released 1976*


Intro:

(Drums)

(n.C)

Verse 1:

       A                 D  A
In the heart of the city,
          A               D  A
Where the alligators roam,
      A                D  A
I'm a little lost when,
      A                  D  A
Ain't got no place to go.

      A                    D  A
Now I ain't got one minute,
           A              D  A
Just gotta sit on my back,
       A               D  A
I left home in a hurry,
          A                D  A
'Till I'm never going back.

Chorus 1:

    E                          D            A
I'm looking for a home, in the heart of the city.

Interlude:

A, D  A

Verse 2:

        A                      D  A
Now I'm stepping on the street,
        A                    D  A
And I'm stepping up the hill,
        A                   D  A
And I'm looking for a lover,
         A                  D  A
Looking, looking everywhere.

          A                 D  A
Maybe I'm in with a chance?
       A              D  A
I hear clickety clack.
       A            D  A
It's a girl my lord,    I see her;

A (n.C)
 Stop,
A (n.C)
 Check,
        D      A
Turning double fast.

Chorus 2:

    E                           D            A
I'm looking for a lover, in the heart of the city.

Interlude:

A, D  A

Chorus 3:

    E
I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking,
I'm looking, looking, looking, looking,
                           D            A
Looking everywhere, in the heart of the city.

Interlude:

A, D  A

Verse 3:

             A                 D  A
Well, in the heart of the city,
           A                 D  A
Well, it's part of the stars.
            A              D  A
I hear that cassette music,
     A                D  A
On a thousand guitars.

         A                     D  A
Hey, the boys are on the prowl,
        A                 D  A
They're checking out meat.
            A                D  A
They know a bird in the hand,
         A                 D  A
Is worth two on the street.

Chorus 4:

        E                         D            A
They're checking the meat, in the heart of the city.

Interlude:

A, D  A

A
 Well, I said;

Coda:

    A             D      A
The heart, heart, of the city,
A              D  A
 Heart, heart, oh yeah.
A              D      A
 Heart, heart, of the city,
A              D  A
 Heart, heart, oh yeah.

(Fade)

Dude: Nick Lowe does change his songs to suit his mood, but if you're going from the album then you've got the lyrics WRONG.

"I'm a little lost lamb"

"Now I ain't got a penny, just the shirt on my back"

and later

"I see her stop, check, then turn and double back"

then finally

"We're in the heart of the city
We're in the heart of the stars
I hear the crash of music
And a thousand guitars
And the boys are on the prowl
And they're checkin' on me
They know a bird up in the hand
Is worth two out on the streets
Checkin' on neat in the heart of the city"

Do it right next time, eh?
