Sin City

Words and Music by Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman

3/4 time




         G                   D7
This old town is filled with sin,

      G7          C
It'll swallow you in

          G                 D7
If you've got some money to burn.

        G           D7
Take it home right away,

           G7             C
You've got three years to pay

G            D7          G
But Satan is waiting his turn




CHORUS:
         C                  D7              G           G7
This old earthquake's gonna leave me in the poor house.

   C               G              D7
It seems like this whole town's insane

       C            D7         G7          C
On the thirty-first floor your gold plated door

      G            D7             G
Won't keep out the Lord's burning rain




    G          D7
The scientists say

      G7        C
It'll all wash away

    G                    D7
But we don't believe any more

            G          D7
Cause we've got our recruits

        G7           C
And our green mohair suits

   G               D7          G     G7
So please show you I.D. At the door.




CHORUS




(Instrumental break)




  G            D7
A friend came around.

         G7            C
Tried to clean up this town;

     G         G7          D7
His ideas made some people mad.

       G           D7
But he trusted his crowd,

      G7              C
So he spoke right out loud

G                 D7               G
And they lost the best friend they had




CHORUS




       C            D7         G7          C
On the thirty-first floor your gold plated door

      G            D7             G
Won't keep out the Lord's burning rain
