How To Play

INTRO
F7  Bb Bbm F G C F
 
VERSE 1
 
Dm7                C           Fmaj7
Simple walk to the corner store
                                          Dm7          C      Fmaj7
Mama never thought she would be gettin' a call from the coroner
                    Dm7                        C
Said her son's been gunned down, been gunned down
             F
"Can you come now?"
                                    Gm7
Tears in her eyes, "Can you calm down?
               F            Bb   C
Please, ma'am, can you calm down?"
 
 
PRE CHORUS
              Dm7                    C            F
But it rained fire in the city that day, they say
           Dm7                 C
A river of blood in the streets
   F
No love in the streets
              Dm7                       C           F
And then came silence in the city that day, they say
                    Bb
Just another one gone
                       C
And they tell her move on
 
 
CHORUS
 
And she's stuck there, singing
F7                          Bb
"Baby, don't you close your eyes
       Bbm               F
'Cause this could be our final time
    G                 C             F
And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye
    F7                 Bb
And I think of all you could have done
   Bbm               F
At least you'll stay forever young
   G                   C              F
I guess you picked the perfect way to die
      G                    C             F
Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die"
 
 
VERSE 2
Dm7          C          F
New job, new city, new her
Dm7               C                            F
Bright-eyed, you would have been proud if you knew her
                                    Dm7   C        F
Flashing lights in the mirror, pull over, pull over
                                      Gm7           F      Bb   C
A couple nights in detention and it's over, a whole life's over
 
 
PRE CHORUS
          Dm7                       C          Fmaj7
They came marching in the city that day, they say
         Dm7                C
Carryin' signs in the streets
       F
Cryin' eyes in the streets
               Dm7                         C          F
But they heard nothing from the city that day, they say
                 Bb
Just another one gone
                   C
And the city moved on
 
 
CHORUS
 
We're stuck here singing
F7               Bb
"Baby, don't you close your eyes
Bbm                      F
'Cause this could be our final time
G                     C                 F
And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye
    F7                Bb
I'll think of all you coulda done
   Bbm               F
At least you'll stay forever young
  G                    C              F
I guess you picked the perfect way to die
      G                   C               F
Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die"
 
 
BRIDGE
        Dm7       C
Another dream lost
        F7             Bb
Another king and queen lost
        Cm6                                F      C
Another broken promise they refuse to make right
            Dm7              C
Oh, another night to live in fear
            F7                    Bb
Oh, another night that you're not here
        Cm6                    E6sus(b2)  C
Another reason to get out there and fight
 
 
CHORUS
            F7               Bb
But I said, "Baby, don't you close your eyes
       Bbm               F
'Cause this could be our final time
        G            C              F
And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye
         F7               Bb
But I'll think of all you coulda done
    Bbm              F
At least you'll stay forever young
  G                    C              F
I guess you picked the perfect way to die
      G                   C
Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way..."
