A  D/A   D/A  E/A   A  D/A  G/A A D/A G/A  A  x2

Verse 1
A              Bm            D         E          A
I'm not one to look behind I know that times must change
A                 Bm             D         E    A
But over there in Barrytown they do things very strange
F#m                      C#m
And though you're not my enemy
  D           C#m       Bm      E
I like things like they used to be
    A                      Bm               
And though you'd like some company
    D        C#m     Bm
I'm standing by myself
   D         C#m      Bm
Go play with someone else
      F#m    E        D     C#m      Bm        E      A
I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

A  D/A   D/A  E/A   A  D/A  G/A A D/A G/A  A 

Verse 2
A                 Bm          D       E        A
Don't believe I'm taken in by stories I have heard
A               Bm             D        E       A
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word
    F#m                  C#m
And don't think that I'm out of line
    D        C#m     Bm      E  
For speaking out for what is mine
A                   Bm
I'd like to see you do just fine
     D      C#m       Bm
But look at what you wear
        D       C#m      Bm
And the way you cut your hair
      F#m    E        D     C#m      Bm        E    A
I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

A  D/A   D/A  E/A 

F          Am7                        Bbmaj7
  In the beginning we recall that the word was hurled
F           Am7                   Bbmaj7
  Barrytown people got to be from another world

A  D/A   D/A  E/A   A  D/A  G/A A D/A G/A  A 

Verse 3
A                Bm               D      E        A
Leave me or I'll be just like the others you will meet
A                 Bm             D       E       A
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street
    F#m                 C#m
And don't you scream or make a shout
     D       C#m     Bm    E  
It's nothing you can do about
A                  Bm
It was there where you came out
       D       C#m     Bm     
It's a special lack of grace
      D      C#m     Bm        
I can see it in your face
      F#m    E        D     C#m      Bm        E    A
I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

A  D/A   D/A  E/A   x6

Are you going to say why, or...?

I should add that this chart is a good place to start. For me the beauty of SD tunes is the cool chord voicings that change from verse to verse -- or the intro that would be so much clearer in a tab form:

002100 002220 004230 002220 002100 002220 x06400 x07600 x09700 x011900

UG chord chart format is pretty unwieldy for much more than basic chord shapes -- e.g. use an F#m11 202200 or a C#m with open E strings that ring more 046650 or a Bm/EE 024430 to try to capture the Dan "mu" sound -- but again this is a great place to start and I appreciate the effort to help me learn the song. Or and Am9 005500 and BbMaj 6x7765 the first line of the bridge
