[Intro]

Am Em F Dm  x2


[Verse 1]

           Am               Em
Old yellow bricks, love's a risk
      F                  Dm
Quite the little escapologist
          Am              Em
Looked so miffed when you wished
      F                      Dm
For a thousand places better than this

            Am               Em
You are the fugitive but you don't know what you're running from
F                    Dm
You can't kid us and you couldn't trick anyone 
Am                 Em                              F         Dm
Houdini  love, you don't know what you're running away from


[Chorus]

    Dm    Em F                 Em
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Dm Em F                   Em
      Blinded by nostalgia 
    Dm    Em F                 Em                   Dm
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?


[Verse 2]

          Am           Em
She was enraged by the way
         F                        Dm
That the emperor put traps in the cage
       Am          Em
And the days she being dull
        F                      Dm
Lead to nights reading beer bottles

              Am               Em
You're such a fugitive but you don't know what you're running from
F                    Dm
You can't kid us and you couldn't trick anyone
Am                 Em                              F        Dm
Houdini  love, you don't know what you're running away from


[Chorus]

    Dm    Em F                 Em
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Dm Em F                   Em
      Blinded by nostalgia
    Dm    Em F                 Em
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?


[Instrumental]

E5  B5 C5 D5 E5  B5 C5 D5  x3
E5  B5 C5 D5 E5
Am


[Chorus]

Dm      Em   F          Em
You're at a  loss, just because
Dm  Em  F                           Em
     It wasn't all that you thought it was
Dm  Em     F            Em                            Dm    Em  F    Em
You are a  fugitive but you don't know what you're running away from
           Dm   Em F                 Em
She said I want to sleep in the city that never wakes up
Dm Em   F                 Em
    And revel in nostalgia
                 Dm    Em F                 Em
I know I said he wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up but
Dsus2
       Dorothy was right though


[Outro]

Am Em F Dm  x2

Great tab! Not sure about the original key but I think it sounds better with a capo on the 2nd fret
