Intro: F7  Bb Bbm F G C F 

Verse 1:

Dm7 C Fmaj7 Simple walk to the corner store Dm7 C Fmaj7 Mama never thought she would be gettin' a call from the coroner Dm7 C Said her son's been gunned down, been gunned down F 'Can you come now?' Gm7 Tears in her eyes, 'Can you calm down? F Bb C Please, ma'am, can you calm down?'

Pre-Chorus

Dm7 C F But it rained fire in the city that day, they say Dm7 C A river of blood in the streets F No love in the streets Dm7 C F And then came silence in the city that day, they say Bb Just another one gone C And they tell her move on
And she's stuck there, singing F7 Bb 'Baby, don't you close your eyes Bbm F 'Cause this could be our final time G C F And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye F7 Bb And I think of all you could have done Bbm F At least you'll stay forever young G C F I guess you picked the perfect way to die G C F Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die'

Verse 2:

Dm7 C F New job, new city, new her Dm7 C F Bright-eyed, you would have been proud if you knew her Dm7 C F Flashing lights in the mirror, pull over, pull over Gm7 F Bb C A couple nights in detention and it's over, a whole life's over

Pre-Chorus

Dm7 C Fmaj7 They came marching in the city that day, they say Dm7 C Carryin' signs in the streets F Cryin' eyes in the streets Dm7 C F But they heard nothing from the city that day, they say Bb Just another one gone C And the city moved on
We're stuck here singing F7 Bb 'Baby, don't you close your eyes Bbm F 'Cause this could be our final time G C F And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye F7 Bb I'll think of all you coulda done Bbm F At least you'll stay forever young G C F I guess you picked the perfect way to die G C F Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die'

Bridge:

Dm7 C Another dream lost F7 Bb Another king and queen lost Cm6 F C Another broken promise they refuse to make right Dm7 C Oh, another night to live in fear F7 Bb Oh, another night that you're not here Cm6 Esus C Another reason to get out there and fight
F7 Bb But I said, 'Baby, don't you close your eyes Bbm F 'Cause this could be our final time G C F And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye F7 Bb But I'll think of all you coulda done Bbm F At least you'll stay forever young G C F I guess you picked the perfect way to die G C Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way...'
