Intro:

E - - - - G - - - - A(I) x2

Verse I:

E                         G                   A

Down on the streets & the wind was blowing hard

E                        G               A

And Cardboard City was growing yard by yard

E                                           G        A

Well the people had it bad, there lives had gone sour

E                                                  G                 A

They had been swept aside like dirt because others hungered for power

Chorus:

E - - - - D - - - - A

                     Going down 

E                  D - - - - A

To Cardboard City             I'm going down

E                  D - - - - A

Ta Cardboard City             Down & out 

E                  D - - - - A

In Cardboard City

Verse II:

E                                             G            A          

What you have to understand is that they are human as well

E                                             G                  A

They are living flesh & blood there not just lost souls from hell

E                                 G                    A

They don't wanna be in big boxes, in an impoverishment

E                                              G                 A

You need some cash to get a place & you need a place to get a job

*Repeat Chorus*

Verse III:

E                      G                    A

Its a vicious circle & you cannot just bail out

E                                               G                 A

You cannot worry for about a job cause you need food in your mouth

E                                      G               A    

Just surviving day to day is about the the hardest thing

E                                              G               A

You'd get fond of the bottle if you can try to forget everything

**Repeat Chorus**

Outro:

E - - - - G - - - - A

Hope it sounds good enough.

love it ! Keeping me going till Almighty Love is out !!!
