                Gm           Bb       Eb
Did you grow up lonesome and one of a kind?
          Gm                     Bb       Eb
Were your records all you had to pass the time?
                  Gm                        Bb  Eb
Or maybe you were taken by the mysteries of New Orlenans?
       Gm                      Bb    Eb
Or the uptight, rowdy girls of Lower Chelsea?

                   Gm           Bb          Eb
And we're hustling under but we live in the city
               Gm           Bb     Eb
And we keep it down when we take a beating
                 Gm            Bb    Eb
Yeah, we keep it down with the radio on
                  Gm              F        Eb
And if you find a good man, don't take him home

            Bb
When you're working full-time
             Ebmaj7 (xx1333)     Bb               Ebmaj7
And spending all of your nights, dancing like you did
          Bb                     Ebmaj7
While the gravity hangs all over some boys you had
Bb                      Ebmaj7
She'll still remain the Queen of Lower Chelsea

                     Gm                                    Bb       Eb
Did you make all the right moves, take all the right drugs right on time?
         Gm     Bb            Eb
American girls, they want the whole world
          Gm                   Bb       Eb
They want every last little in New York City

And we keep it down when we take a beating
