About this tab version
First version you can play along with the original recording. The semitone key change at the end of the second chorus is a bit of a challenge. If you are fast enough you move the capo one fret up and continue to play the easier chords. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse]
  C            C               F/C        G/C
When you’re alone and life is making you lonely
        C       C      F      G                       
You can always go        Downtown
  C              C               F/C            G/C
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
          C       C      F      G
Seems to help I know       Downtown

[Bridge]
      C             C            Am             Am
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
 C             C                  Am             Am
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
Em           Em    F      F               F        F
How can you lose?    The lights so much brighter there
            D             D           D            D
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go

[Chorus]
 C/G  CM7/G    Dm/G         Em/G
Down - town,   things’ll be great when you’re 
 C/G  CM7/G    Dm/G      Em/G
Down - town,   no finer place, for sure
 C/G  CM7/G    Dm/G         Em/G         C     F/C
Down - town    everything’s waiting for you-uuuuuu
                                       (down-town
CM7   F/C   C    F/C   CM7   F/C
           Downtoooooooooooooooown)

[Verse]
 C           CM7                 F/C         G/C
Don't hang around  and let your problems surround you                     
           C     CM7      F      G                       
There are movie shows       downtown
 C         CM7              F/C     G/C
Maybe you know some little places to go to where they
 C     CM7       F      G
Never close        downtown                          

[Bridge]
      C              C          Am          Am
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle Bossanova
 C                 C              Am               Am
You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over
 Em7    Em7   F       F                F        F
Happy again!     The lights are much brighter there
            D             D           D            D
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go

[Chorus]
C/G   CM7/G     Dm/G          Em/G
Down – town,    where all the lights are bright
C/G   CM7/G     Dm/G       Em/G
Down - town,    waiting for you tonight
C/G   CM7/G     Dm/G         Em/G        C   F/C
Down - town,    you're gonna be alright no-oooooow
                                       (down-town
