In The City
written by Mac McAnally
recorded by Jimmy Buffett


Intro (sung only)

D   Em  D          C   Bm
Ah, ah, ahhhhhhh,  ahhhhhhh
D   D   Em  D      C   Bm
Ah, ah, ahhhhhhh,  ahhhhhhh
D   D   Em  D      C
Ah, ah, ahhhhhhh,  ahhh

Intro w/band

G  D  G  D
C  D  C  Em D 
repeat

     G               D
As a child on the farm
       G             D
I was warned of the wiles of the city
C   D   C   Em - D

         G           D 
Of that demon disguise
            G            D 
There's the dirt in the skies of the city
C   D   C   Em - D
 
          D       Em        D            Em
Well they say the proximity warps their minds
            D        Em                D       Em 
'Til they're shooting one another just pass the time
       Em      D
And we live it appears
        C            D 
Both in spite and in fear of the city

G  D  G  D
C  D  C  Em D
Oooohhh, ooohhhh yeah 
Oooohhh 
I was constantly told 
How our lives were controlled by the city 
How they keep us in debt 
With the trends that they set it's a pity 
Now the beautiful people in the magazines 
Got the normal ones living beyond their means 
And the things that they said 
Made me go in my head to the city 
Oooohhh 
Ahhhhhhh

D   Em  D          C   Bm
Ah, ah, ahhhhhhh,  ahhhhhhh
D   D   Em  D      C   Bm
Ah, ah, ahhhhhhh,  ahhhhhhh
D   D   Em  D      C
Ah, ah, ahhhhhhh,  ahhh
(solo)
 
When I finally came 
There's some things still the same in the city 
Your still under the thumb 
Of the rich and the young and the pretty 
Well they weren't much different than we might act 
If there was that many others that closely packed 
It's an ancient idea 
But it struck me so clear in the city 
Oooohhh, ooohhhh yeah 
Oooohhh, ooohhhh yeah 
Oooohhh 
Ahhhhhh 
Ah, ahhhhhh 
Ah, ahhhhhh 


An alternate way to play this song is to capo on the 5th fret.
