Am G F E7 C Dm

   Am                             G
Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down
      F                              E7
The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below
  Am                                 G
Following their footsteps through the neon darkened corridors
    F                         E7
Of silent desperation,never speaking to a soul

     F                                C
The poison air heʼs breathing has a dirty smell of dying
            Dm                                E7
Cause itʼs never seen the sunshine and itʼs never felt the rain
     Am                         G
But Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
         F                                 E7              Am
Of the clicking of the turnstile and the rattle of his chains

  C                                                    G
"Oh",she said "Casey itʼs been so long since iʼve seen you"
"Here",she said "Just a kiss to make a body smile"
"See",she said "Iʼve put on new stockings just to please you"
"Lord" she said "Casey can you only stay awhile"

  Am                              G
Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the golden crown
      F                              E7
For something wet to wipe away the chill thatʼs on his bones
  Am                           G
Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
      F                             E7
Who reach for anything they can to keep from going home

  F                            C
Standing in the corner,Casey drinks his pint of bitter
       Dm                             E7
Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by
         Am                             G
Then he stumbles as heʼs leaving and he wonders if the reason
        F                               E7                 Am
Is the beer thatʼs in his belly or the tear thatʼs in his eye

   C                                                  G
"Oh",she said "I suppose that you seldom think about me"
"Now",she said "Now that youʼve a family of your own"
"Still",she said "Itʼs so blessed and good to feel your body"
                                             C   Dm  G  C
"Lord",she said "Casey itʼs a shame to be alone"
