(repeats 4 times)

 

 

C

I would love to be the lucky one on Chill Avenue

Am

Who could keep your hear warm when ice has turned it blue

G

But with the beggin' sleeping losers as they turn in for the night

C

I'm looking back for home and I can see the lights

 

C

I should be jumpin' shoutin' that I made it all this way

Am

>From Camden Town Station to 44th and 8th

G

Not many make it this far and many say we're great

C

But just like them we walk on an' we can't escape our fate

 

Am F G

Can't you hear the sighing

C F

Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue

G Csus C

Both say they needed something new

 

CHORUS

C

So I'm standing at the gates of the West

Em

I burn money at the lights of the sign

F G C

The city casts a shadow of the perfect crime

 

I'm standing at the gates of the East

Em

I take my pulse and the pulse of my friend

F G C

The city casts a shadow, will I see you again?

 

 

The immigrants an' remnants of all the glory years

Are clustered around the bar again for another round of beers

Little Richard's in the kitchen playing spoons and plates

He's telling the waitress he's great

 

Ah say I know somewhere back'n'forth in time

Out on the dustbowls, deep in the roulette mine

Or in a ghetto cellar only yesterday

There's a move into the future for the U.S.A.

 

I hear them crying

Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue

Both say they needed something new

 

CHORUS

 

C Em Em Am Am F F

C Em Em Am Am F F

C Em Em Am Am F F C

 

(with chords from chorus)

Standing at the gates of the West

In the shadow again

Standing at the gates of the West

In the shadow again

In the shadow again
