G Late afternoon, back in New York town Em Waking up as the wheels touch down D/F Pick up my guitar and walk away C Wish I was going home to stay G Line of taxis, I wait my turn Em Tar and asphalt, exhaust and fumes Be D/F side the road on a patch of ground C Taxi drivers are kneeling down 'Neath the G concrete sky I watch them pray While the Em people of the world hurry on their way I D/F think they're praying for us all today And the C stories that fell from the sky that day

Chorus

Em This is the C land of the G living D/F Em This is the C land that's D/F mine Em She still watches C over Man G hattan D/F She's still Em holding onto that C torch for D/F life Back home G fire's still burning, I can see it in the air Em Pictures of faces posted everywhere They say D/F "Hazel eyes and chestnut hair C Mother of two, missing down there" I pass the G firemen on duty tonight Em Carpets of flowers in candlelight And D/F "Thank you" in a child's scrawl C Taped to the 3rd Street firehouse wall There's G shadows of the lost on the faces I see Em Brothers and strangers on this island of grief There's D/F death in the air but there's life on this street C There's life on this street

Chorus

G Got in a taxi, said "Hudson St. please" He Em started the meter and he looked at me I D/F glanced at his name on the back of the seat And I C looked out the window at the ghost-filled streets I G noticed cuts on his hand and his face I said Em "You're bleeding, are you okay?" He said "I'm D/F not so good, got beat up today And I'm C not one of them no matter what they say I'm just G worried about my family My Em wife's in the house and she's scared to leave" D/F And I didn't know what to say I didn't know what to say C But I said a prayer for him D/F anyway Em This is the C land of the G living D/F Em This is the C land that's D/F mine Em She still watches C over Man G hattan D/F She's still Em holding onto that C torch for D/F life Holding on for G life
