chords maintain same rhythm as before

D (5th pos.) w/riff 1              E (7th pos.)  chord only
He looked a lot like Che Guevara.  Drove a diesel van.

D (5th pos.) w/riff 1              E (7th pos.)  chord only
Kept his gun in quiet seclusion.  Such a humble man.

G           A     G               A
The only survivor of the National People's Gang.

D        E D C D    E     D   C      D
Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph

He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone.

D w/riff 1         E
Panic in Detroit.

verse 2
(same as before)
He laughed at accidental sirens that broke the evening gloom.
The police had warned of repercussions.
They followed none too soon.
A trickle of strangers were all that were left alive.

chorus
Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph
He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone.
Panic in Detroit.

D                                 C
Putting on some clothes I made my way to school
B                      C                G
and I found my teacher crouching in his overalls.

D                                       C
I screamed and ran to smash my favorite slot machine
B                     C                  D
and jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights.

D ------------------------|

back to intro rhythm
Bm G A

verse 3
Having scored a million dollars, made a run back home.
Found him slumped across a table.  A gun and me alone.
I ran to the window.  Looked for a plane or two.

Panic in Detroit.  He'd left me an autograph.
"Let me collect dust."  I wish someone would phone.
Panic in Detroit.

go out on intro rhythm, I prefer massive whammy and feedback abuse
