[1st Verse]
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Every night my dream's the same
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Same old city with a different name
Gadd6/9                                 Gadd6/9
Men are coming to take me away
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
I don't know why but I know I can't stay

(Dadd6x2)

[2nd Verse]
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
There's a weight that's pressing down
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Late at night I can hear the sound
Gadd6/9                                 Gadd6/9
Even the noise you make when you sleep
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Can't swim across the river’s so deep

[Chorus]
Asus4                  Asus4/C#
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
         Gadd5/B                Gadd5/D            Dadd6
But they don't know where and they don't know when
Dadd6             Dadd6
...it's coming, when...it's...comi------n’

(Dadd6x4) 

[3rd Verse]
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
There's this fear I keep so deep
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Knew it’s name just before I could speak...yea
Gadd6/9    Gadd6/9     Dadd6  Dadd6 
     Ho—--Oh—----Oh----Oh

[Chorus]
Asus4                  Asus4/C#
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
      Gadd5/B                  Gadd5/D             Dadd6
But they don't know where and they don't know when
     Gadd6/9    Dadd6         Gadd6/9              (guitar/strings alone Dadd6x1)
It's coming, or where but it's coming, keep the car running

(guitar/strings Dadd6x1 then build all in Dadd6x2)

[4th Verse]
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
If some night I don't come home
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Please don't think I've left you alone
    Gadd6/9                             Gadd6/9
The same place animals go when they die
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Can't climb across a mountain so high
    Gadd6/9                             Gadd6/9
The same city where I go when I sleep
Dadd6                                   Dadd6
Can't swim across a river so deep

[Chorus]
Asus4                  Asus4/C#
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
      Gadd5/B                   Gadd5/D             Dadd6
But they don't know where and they don't know when
     Gadd6/9    Dadd6       Gadd6/9              Dadd6    
It's coming, or where is it coming, keep the car running
 Gadd6/9                 Dadd6     Gadd6/9               (guitar/strings alone Dadd6x1)  
             Keep the car running.............keep the car running

(guitar/strings Dadd6x1 then build all in Dadd6x2 cut on and of 4)
