D                   G/B           D     A
I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
Bm         G                 A
 I saw the Empire State laid low.
F#m7                          Bm      
 And life went on beyond the Palisades,
B7sus2          D
 They all bought Cadillacs
A               G
 And left there long ago.

D            G/B            D       A  
 They held a concert out in Brooklyn
Bm            G              A--Asus4-A
 To watch the Island bridges blow.
D/F#             G
 They turned our power down
D              G/B
 And drove us underground
A            G/B                D    
 But we went right on with the show

[INTERLUDE x2] D  D  A Asus4 A

D              G/D              D 
 I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
Bm         G           A  Asus4 A 
 I saw the ruins at my feet
F#m7                       Bm       B7sus2
 You know we almost didn't notice it
B7sus2      A                     G             A  
We'd see it all the time on Forty-Second Street.

D                G/D            D
 They burned the churches up in Harlem
Bm            G                A  Asus4 A
 Like in that Spanish Civil War
D/F#              G
 The flames were everywhere
D           G/B
 But no one really cared
A          G/B                   D
 It always burned up there before

[INTERLUDE x2] D  D  A Asus4 A

D              G/D              D
 I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
Bm             G              A  Asus4 A
 I watched the mighty skyline fall.
F#m7                          Bm      B7sus2 
 The boats were waiting at the Battery
B7sus2      A
 The union went on strike
           G          
They never sailed at all.

D            G/D              D 
 They sent a carrier out from Norfolk
Bm              G                 A  Asus2 A
 And picked the Yankees up for free.
D/F#            G 
 They said that Queens could stay
D               G/B
 They blew the Bronx away
A            G/B            D
 And sank Manhattan out at sea

[INTERLUDE x2] D  D  A Asus4 A

D               G                        D      A
 You know those lights were bright on Broadway
Bm              G             A
 But that was so many years ago
F#m7                     Bm         B7sus2
 Before we all lived here in Florida
B7sus2       A              G
 Before the Mafia took over Mexico.
D              G/D        D      A 
 There are not many who remember
Bm          G                A   
 They say a handful still survive
D/F#         G
 To tell the world about
D            G/B
The way the lights went  out
A               G/B       Bb 
 And keep the memory alive

[CODA] (repeat for as long as u like): D  C  G  Bb
