Am * C  G  F  2X 

        Am  *C                        G           F 
I walk alone, down hard streets in this razor wind. 
           Am                      *C       G          F 
Having the same streetlight conversations, again and again. 
                     Dm  Am                    G 
With the same dark spirits, to the same dark angels. 

         Am     F   G             Am    F    G 
In this night rain city, in this night rain city. 
             Am         F      G 
Where mercy fades and shadows fall. 
         Am     F      G             Am    F    G 
How did Heaven get so far from this night rain city? 

                  Am  *C                          G         F 
This once was a diamond, now it's just some old tired Rivertown. 
                  Am  *C                G                F 
The wing and the wheel, man, they all left for higher ground. 
                        Dm  Am                      G 
And they're not comin' back, they're never comin' back to this 

           Am     F   G           Am    F    G 
To this night rain city,  this night rain city. 
             Am         F      G 
Where mercy fades and shadows fall. 
         Am     F      G             Am    F    G 
How did Heaven get so far from this night rain city? - 

Am  F  G  5X 
  
          G      
When it storms like hell, and the river is risin', 
    F          
I stand on the levee and I find myself prayin' that 
 G                  
This time, maybe this time, it'll just keep on comin' 
     F                    G 
And wash all this sorrow away. Wash it all away. 

           Am     F   G           Am    F    G 
From this night rain city,  this night rain city. 
             Am         F      G 
Where mercy fades and shadows fall. 
         Am     F      G             Am    F    G 
How did Heaven get so far from this night rain city? 
                                Am    F    G 
It's always cold here, in this night rain city. 
                             Am    F     G 
And it's dark here, in this night rain city.
