VERSE 1
[1st part - strummed chords]
 
C
Grim-faced and forbidding, their faces closed tight,
   F
An angular mass of New Yorkers,
C
Pacing in rhythm, race the oncoming night.
     F
They chase through the streets of Manhattan.
C
Head-first humanity pause at a light
     F
Then flow through the streets of the city.

C
Wide-angle watcher on life's ancient tales,
F
Steeped in the history of London.
C
Green and gray washes in a wispy white veil,
F
Mist in the streets of Westminster.
C
Wistful and weathered the pride still prevails,
 F
Alive in the streets of the city.
