Capo 2

E
Well, I hate this town, hate this place
There ain't nothin' to do
      F#m    
Except go down to the bar each night
And drink 'til 2
A
I hate my job
                        E
I'm always in a bad mood
F#m                              A
I fear I'm comin' down with a case
                      E
Of the tall city blues
E
Well, I'm a CPA, I got my B.B.A. from TTU
         F#m
I crunch numbers in a highrise
Countin' barrels o' crude
A
Me and my buddies b***h in the breakroom
                                           E
'Cause our boss went golfin' this afternoon
F#m                         A
Left us to fend for ourselves
                      E
In the tall city blues

(Chorus)
F#m            E       F#M            
Tall city dreamin' is a difference
           E        F#m  

In believin' in makin' a livin'
      A              E
Or lovin' what you do
F#M          E          F#m   
Raisin' a family among strangers

and wildcatters who were
F#m           A         E
brought here by the boom
F#m                       A
We'll all be strangers soon
                   E
With tall city blues

(Verse 2)
This one bedroom apartment
Is takin' all my dough
Fifteen hundred a month
For Venetian blinds and stained concrete floors
Lay back in my king size bed
Each night where I sleep alone
Dreamin' about my next move
Outta these tall city blues

(Chorus)
Tall city dreamin' is a difference
In believin' in makin' a livin'
Or lovin' what you do
Raisin' a family among strangers
and wildcatters who were
brought here by the boom
We'll all be strangers soon
With tall city blues

(Verse 3)
Got laid off this morning
Did you not hear the news
We took too much out of the ground
Than We knew what to do
Tonight no one gives a damn
Whether your collar's white or blue
We'll drain our glasses by the masses
And make a toast
To the tall city blues
Let's drain our glasses by the masses
And make a toast
To the tall city blues
Oh

(Chorus)
Tall city dreamin' is a difference
In believin' in makin' a livin'
Or lovin' what you do
Raisin' a family among strangers
and wildcatters who were
brought here by the boom
We'll all be strangers soon
With tall city blues
We'll all be strangers soon
With tall city blues
