A day out in Detroit

VERSE
Esus
Buildings fall to the ground
Do they even make a sound
D#
If there's no one around
B
To write it down

Cruise the streets in a homegrown car
Everywhere looks a bit bizarre
See no soul in the cinema
On your own in a derelict downtown bar

CHORUS
D#
Lonely times
B                              Esus
A dead dog day in Detroit

VERSE
No way out of the central station
What happened to the transportation?
Waiting for a train?
You'll be waiting for a long time

Withdraw what you want from the national bank
The books are on the floor in the public library
Try to tell somebody at the police station
Looks like the law left in a hurry

CHORUS

MIDDLE
F#              Esus
What a dead day?
F#                Esus
What would Ford say?

VERSE
Farwell and Donovan are showing their age
All they wants a living wage
The Broderick Towers
Hanging around, waiting for another chance

Check into the old Lee Plaza
It's got less stars than a barn in Gaza
The ballroom's quiet
Nobody feels like dancing today

CHORUS
