Capo:1st fret

[Part 1: The World's Columbian Exhibition]
 
VERSE 1
 
Cmaj7
Oh great intentions
Cmaj7
I've got the best of interventions
Cmaj7
But when the ads come
Cmaj7
I think about it now
 
VERSE 2
 
Cmaj7
In my infliction
Cmaj7
Entrepreneurial conditions
Cmaj7
Take us to glory
Cmaj7
I think about it now
 
CHORUS 1
 
Cmaj7
Cannot conversations cull united nations?
Cmaj7
If you got the patience, celebrate the ancients
Cmaj7
Cannot all creation call it celebration?
Cmaj7
Or united nation. Put it to your head.
 
VERSE 3
 
Cmaj7
Oh great white city
Cmaj7
I've got the adequate committee
Cmaj7
Where have your walls gone?
Cmaj7
I think about it now
 
BRIDGE
 
F      Am          C               E
Chicago, in fashion, the soft drinks, expansion
F         C
Oh Columbia!
F        Am          C             E
From Paris, incentive, like Cream of Wheat invented
F              C
The Ferris Wheel!
 
VERSE 4
 
Cmaj7
Oh great intentions
Cmaj7
Covenant with the imitation
Cmaj7
Have you no conscience?
Cmaj7
I think about it now
 
VERSE 5
 
Cmaj7
Oh God of Progress
Cmaj7
Have you degraded or forgot us?
Cmaj7
Where have your laws gone?
Cmaj7
I think about it now
 
CHORUS 2
 
Cmaj7
Ancient hieroglyphic or the South Pacific
Cmaj7
Typically terrific, busy and prolific
Cmaj7
Classical devotion, architect promotion
Cmaj7
Lacking in emotion. Think about it now.
 
BRIDGE
 
F        Am           C             E
Chicago, the New Age, but what would Frank Lloyd Wright say?
F          C
Oh Columbia!
F         Am          C              E
Amusement or treasure, these optimistic pleasures
F                  C
Like the Ferris Wheel!
 
CHORUS 3
 
Cmaj7
Cannot conversations cull united nations?
Cmaj7
If you got the patience, celebrate the ancients
Cmaj7
Columbia!

D Bm F#m A
 
[Part II: Carl Sandburg Visits Me in a Dream]
 
VERSE 1
 
   D       Bm       F#m         A
I cried myself to sleep last night
          D        Bm         F#m          A
And the ghost of Carl, he approached my window
          D            Bm        F#m     A
I was hypnotized, I was asked, to improvise
          D           Bm
On the attitude, the regret
        F#m        A
Of a thousand centuries of death
 
CHORUS
 
D                             Bm
Even with the heart of terror and the superstitious wearer
F#m
I am riding all alone
A
I am writing all alone
D                             Bm
Even in my best condition, counting all the superstition
F#m
I am riding all alone
A
I am running all alone
 
VERSE 2
 
         D               Bm            F#m        A
And we laughed at the beatitudes of a thousand lines
         D                Bm
We were asked at the attitudes
         F#m          A
They reminded us of death
 
CHORUS 2
 
D                            Bm
Even with the rest belated, everything is antiquated
F#m
Are you writing from the heart?
A
Are you writing from the heart?
D                           Bm
Even in his heart the Devil has to know the water level
F#m
Are you writing from the heart?
A
Are you writing from the heart?
 
VERSE 2
       D       Bm      F#m         A
And I cried myself to sleep last night
         D             Bm               F#m               A
For the Earth, and materials, they may sound just right to me
 
OUTRO
D                             Bm
Even with the rest belated, everything is antiquated
F#m
Are you writing from the heart?
A
Are you writing from the heart?
D                             Bm
Even in his heart the Devil has to know the water level
F#m
Are you writing from the heart?
A
Are you writing from the heart?
