**Capo 4**

Intro:    Cadd9   C   Fadd9   F   x 2


          Cadd9                                Fadd9
Well they finally put that red light up in the heart of town
         Cadd9                          Fadd9
Took the stop sign down, it was shot up anyhow 
    Cadd9                              Fadd9
One night I ran right through it in my Chevrolet
       Cadd9                 Fadd9
Both police cars came, but I got away 


Chorus:
           G                             F
  It was a boom town back in'62, 'til the coal ran out
                                       C
  And a drought came through, and they dammed the river
                      G
  That we all used to fish
                       F
  Population 405 and I made it 404 one night
               C                             G
  And left the city limit sign layin' in the ditch
            F                    Cadd9   C   Fadd9   F
  Run plumb over it, leavin' Metropolis


        Cadd9                                  Fadd9
Well, I found myself in a big high-rise with a concrete yard
              Cadd9                          Fadd9
It ain't safe after dark, guess this ol' boy drove too far
      Cadd9                                     Fadd9
Met a girl, fell in love, got married and she's due in May
                 Cadd9                          Fadd9
Says we're gonna need more space, I said I know just the place 


              F
 Where we can  walk down to the country store
        C
 And we won't even have to lock our door
        F                 F/E             Dm7
 We can still get air and water there for free
                      Gsus4      G
 She said that sounds good to me


Chorus:
           G                              F
  It was a boomtown back in '62, 'til the coal ran out
                                       C
  And a drought came through, and they dammed the river
                      G
  That we all used to fish
                           F
  Population 404 and when we pull in it'll be 3 more
                C                             G
  And there's a city limit sign layin' in the ditch
         F                       Cadd9   C   Fadd9   F
  That I need to fix, back in Metropolis
                    Cadd9   C   Fadd9   F
  I'm almost in Metropolis
                      Cadd9   C
  And I'm back in Metropolis
