IN THE CITY
Joe Walsh, Barry DeVorzon

Eagles
The Long Run
1979

INTRO:
A  D    A  E    A  D    A  E

A  D		      A       E
     Somewhere out on that horizon
A  D		    A	 E
     Out beyond the neon lights
A  D			   A	    E
     I know there must be something better

Part I:
           but there's nowhere else in   sight             It's survival...
   +	   +	       +       +	 +   +   +   +    +

It's survival in the city
When you live from day to day
City streets don't have much pity

Part II:
           When you're down that's where you'll   stay
   +       +	       +	   +		  +           +        +         +

I was born here in the city

(with Fill 1: GUITAR 2)
Nothing grows and life ain't very pretty
(with Part I: GUITAR 1)
No one's there to catch you when you fall

(with Fill 1: GUITAR 2)
Somewhere out on that horizon
(with Fill 1: GUITAR 2)
Far away from the neon sky
(with Fill 1: GUITAR 2)
I know there must be something better
(with Part II: GUITAR 1)
And I can't stay another night

Chorus
