E A E   E A E

E                  A E
Mississippi swells I know
E                 A   E
ever drawing lines to another time
                 A
to the sirens of Chicago
             B
or Memphis's eerie glow
E              A   E
not quite cause he chosen so
       E               A    E
But if dreams were drawn to drown in such a small town
                          F#m
so your instincts made you go
                      B
you reflect on things you now know


         E                           G#m
Like how Cindy said it all seems the same
            A
imbedded in patterns you don't notice
B                           E
features out of focus its a shame
                    B                           A
the flashlight just falls in the direction your headed
E                               G#m
you just knew there's nothing to gain
              F#m
no measure of light among the sightless
B
immobilized and righteous
       E                        B                        A
it was pain so you pointed your beam in the direction of anywhere


           E                           A
and though urbanity is not without its flaws
                       B
You found the time and space

you need to sharpen your claws
                              A
and hone your eyesight on the skeletons upon
                         E
which all your little interactions carry on
                           A
those that are visible and not metaphysical
                      B
and not the anatomy of everything

E
So when I got to your city
A      E
it was summer, it was pretty
       A
and we walked around because we had the time
         B
And you remarked on all the places that you hadn't seen in ages
   E                  A          E
disconnected from the metro city lines
           A
and on the closed doors of the fire station
B
testament to force displacement
E                 E     F#m  G#m  A
shocked me so to see it from the ground
              E               E     F#m     G#m     A
what seems to functional from great heights looking down


    E                      A
but cities observed from planes
                 B
at some point so deceptively all start to look the same
                          A
you get distracted by the light below the clouds
                                   E
That seems to shine on through the night you know and how
                           A
it seems so little to someone
                       
feel the brightness of the sun
                 B
only skyscrapers shine
                         A      E    A    E
the tallest buildings do define

[Trumpet Solo]

       E               A
And in letters now you wonder
    E
in the lights your living under
        A
and the vantage points you get to even come upon
    B
you dream in transportation infrastructures the bus station
        E                   A                    E
and the blocks between the shops light's flicker on and off and on
       A                            B
and my imagination to travels those streets
            E              E      F#m  G#m A
thinking of places and the people that we meet
    E                  E        F#m G#m A
and conversations with strangers on bus seats


E                          A
like you and Arthur on the 28
   B
45 fading flip side of the day
                      A
and saying oh and its magical and cool
                         E         A  E
a place where cities and star-scapes collide
  A                                      E        A   E
I think of the people alive and awake on magnolia street side
    A                                                 B                    A     E   A  E
the living room lamps and the headlights of cars are like fireflies in the night sky

E A E
