B         B2  B            B2  B    B2      D

Verse 2: use verse 1 chords
I hear a breeze that wheezes through the tips of the pines
Ahere there's laughter and screaming to the rafters in the

Verse 3: use verse 1 chords

Verse 4: use verse 1 chords
It's just a loud crowd crush. It's just a thrush, seen flying
through the late autumn dusk for the very last time. It's
just a busted-up body in the dust of the last road out of the
city, when the city explodes. Light grows, and the light
grows bright, and red-tinged. We were fallen on the
border with the rock and roll singed. Times ten. Times
ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times
ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times ten.
