                   A Bar In Amsterdam








(Capo 3)


Em
Nine hours passed and how long will it last
          G                      A                   (H)                         
says the man with the plan and a gun in his hand.
     Em
He's scared but prepared it might be as he feared
           G                  A                       (H)                         
are they still in control, and safe behind the wall.
       Em
This evening's too quiet, oh we need a real riot
    G                        A                    (H)                         
to shake and to break and to bite like a snake.
       Em
We're stuck in this attic so bored and so static,
    G                                     A     H 
tomorrow they'll ask us to throw off our masks.
         Em                           (G)
But the storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
         C           G            D
like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.
      Em                          G
The storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
        C             G              D                 Em
like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.



 Em
Mary's like me she's a loser to be,
       G                     A                             (H)                         
got a lock on her door and a bed on the floor.
           Em
They will know they will win and then they'll come in.
          G                       A          (H)                           
There's nothing you could say to lead them astray.
     Em
We still live in silence like sworn threats of violence.
    G                        A                                    (H)                         
I long for an end and it's coming round the bend.
       Em
If we live through this night and we'd still be all right.
      G                A                                 H
We'd flee to Siam or a bar in Amsterdam.


          Em                            G
 But the storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
          C           G            D
 like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.
       Em                          G
 The storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
         C             G              D             Em
 like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.
