Where the streets have no name Where the streets have no name We're still building then burning down love Burning down love And when I go there I go there with you... It's all I can do The city's a flood

D

And our love turns to rust We're beaten and blown by the wind Trampled in dust

G

I'll show you a place

Bm

High on the desert plain

A

Where the streets have no name

Csus9

Where the streets have no name Where the streets have no name Still building then burning down love Burning down love And when I go there I go there with you It's all I can do Our love turns to rust

D

And we're beaten and blown by the wind

G

Blown by the wind Oh and I see love

D

See our love turn to rust And we're beaten and blown by the wind Blown by the wind

G

Oh when I go there

Bm

I go there with you

A

It's all I can do

In the howling wind comes a stinging rain See it driving nails into the souls on a tree of pain From the firefly a red-orange glow I see the face of fear Running scared in the valley below Bullet the blue sky Bullet the blue sky In locust wind comes a rattle and hum Judith wrestled the angel And the angel was overcome She had a demon seed She rase flower of fire I see her burning crosses I see the flames higher and higher Bullet the blue sky Bullet the blue sky And I see her come up to me Her dress red Like a rose on a thorn bush Like all the colors of a royal flush And she's pealing off those dollar bills And slapping them down One hundred Two hundred And I can see those fighter planes And I can see those fighter planes Across the mud huts where the children sleep Through the alleys and quiet city streets Up a staircase to the first floor I turn the key and slowly unlock the door A man breathes into a saxophone Through the walls we hear the city groan Outside it's America Outside it's America "So I'm back in my hotel room, With Johnnie Coltrane and the love supreme, In the next room I hear some woman scream out, That her lover's turning off, Turning on the television, I can't tell the difference between :- ABC news, Hill Street Blues And some preacher in the old time gospel hour Stealing money from the sick and the old Well the God I believe in ain't short of cash Mister !!" See across the view See the sky ripped open See the rain pounding the women and children Who run Into the arms of America...... RUNNING TO A STAND STILL D And so she woke up, woke up from Gwhere she was lying still, said I Dgot to do something about where we're Ggoing. DStep on a steam train, G step out of the driving rain, maybe D run from the darkness in the niGght, singing Aah, ah la la Cla de Gday A ah la la Cla de Gday, ah la lDa de day G Sweet the sin, but bitter the taste in my mouth. I see seven towers, but I only see one way out. You got to cry without weeping, talk without speaking, scream without raising your voice, you know I took the poison, from the poison stream, then I floated out of here, singing ah, ah la la la de day ah la la la de day, ah la la de day oGooh, ooDoh, ooGoh D She runs through the street with her eyes painted red G under black belly of cloud in the rain D in through the doorway she brings me Gwhite gold and pearls, stolen from the sea, she is rDaging she is raging, and the Gstorm blows up in her eyes, she will A suffer the neCedle Gchill A she's running to Cstand G Dstill G D G D RED HILL MINING TOWN GFrom Father to SoCn the blood runs thin OGur faces frozen (Cstill) against the wind TGhe seam is split,C the coal face cracked TGhe lines are longC and there's no going back TGhrough hands of steelC and a heart of stone OGur labour day hasC come and goneD And you lAeave us holding on In RFed Hill Town, as the lights go down IG'm hanging on D You're all that's left to hFold on to C IG'm holding on D You're all that's left to hFold on to C The glass is cut, the bottle runs dry Our love runs cold in the caverns of the night We're wounded by fear, injured in doubt I can lose myself, you I can't live without Because you keep me holding on In Red Hill Town, as the lights go down I'm hanging on ...

EXIT EmYou know he got the cure...but then he went astray, He uCsed to stay awake to drive the dGreams he had away He waEmnted to believe in the hCands of lovGe... His head it felt heavy as he cut across the land A dog started crying like a broken hearted man At the howling wind... the howling wind He went deeper into black, deeper into white... he could see the stars shine like nails in the night He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing hands of love Like the stars shiny, shiny... from above. He put his hands in the pocket, his finger on the steel The pistol weighed heavy, his heart he could feel Was beating, beating, beating, beating oh my love Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love. (He saw the hands that build could also pull down.... The hands of love) MOTHERS OF THE DISAPPEARED AMidnight, our sons and daughters Were cut down and taken from us Hear their heEartbeat...D/F We hear their heAartbeat In the wind, we hear their laughter In the rain we see their tears Hear their heartbeat..., we hear their heartbeat Night hangs like a prisoner Stretched over black and blue Hear their heartbeat..., we hear their heartbeat In the trees our sons stand naked Through the walls our daughters cry See their tears in the rainfall
