TOKYO by Bruce Cockburn

E  022100
B/E 024400
F#m/E 044200
D/E  002200  (I don't think this is the right name for this chord 
              but what the heck.)
In the chorus barr the A on the fifth fret and the B on the Seventh.


E                                 B/E
They're getting prepared to haul a car out of the river
          F#m/E                           E
Noise and smoke and concrete seem to be going on forever
                                 B/E
Grinding gears and drivers getting high on exhaust
             F#m/E                          D/E
I'm thinking about the water down below and what got lost

E / / / B/E  / / / F#m/E  / / / E  / / / 

E                   B/E
Pachinko jingle and space torpedo beams
F#m/E                   E
Comic book violence and escaping steam
                        B/E
Gray suited businessmen pissing against the wall
       F#m/E                      D/E
Cut to crumbling guard rail, slow motion car fall

E  A        B                       F#m
Oh Tokyo, I never can sleep in your arms
E    A        B                     F#m
Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
E                A
Me and all these other dice
B                      F#m
Bouncing around in the cup
        E                    A
Did you have to show me that accident scene
         B                  F#m
Didn't I get enough shaking up
                   A      F#m       
Still I'm going to miss   you

Dragon of good fortune struggles with the trickster fox
Energy and patience and the power of the buck
Tonight I'm flying headlong to meet the dark red edge of dawn
I know somebody will be crying and somebody will be gone

Oh Tokyo, I never can sleep in your arms
Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
Me and all these other dice
Bouncing around in the cup
Did you have to show me that accident scene
Didn't I get enough shaking up
Still I'm going to miss you
