How To Play

INTRO
C
 
VERSE 1
C                F                       G       F
 A break in the clouds is a break in my day
  G                 F    C
Face the sun of my salvation
C             F                           G        F
As Hathaway Jones would have made it his own feet
 G                         F    C
Fly by the wings of your creation
 
CHORUS 1
F                    C                G
 On the top of your head, there is a poem
                   Am                F
The thought in my head, oh God only knows
               C                 G
As everything else will disappoint you
F               C        G                  Am                    F
 I used to be young and bold, but now I'm afraid, I'm getting so old
                 C                   G
I followed the light to the City of Roses

VERSE 2
C                     F                  G       F
 It's a little-known fact that I can't cope
G                    F    C
I'm the champion of repression
C              F                     G       F
I've had it enough with the east coast
      G                      F    C
I'll die by the wings of my ambition
 
CHORUS 2
F            C                  G
 The city I left, the city of throes
                 Am                F
The one that I loved, the city of hope
               C               G
As everything else will disappoint you
F               C        G                  Am                    F
I used to be young and bold, but now I'm of age, I'm getting so old
                 C                   G
I followed the light to the City of Roses
 
OUTRO
C                F                       G       F
A break in the clouds is a break in my day
G                 F    C
