E chordE
Riding on the subway
Hanging out and breathing underground
E/B chordE/B
Blame it on the subway
Couldn't get reception while I was rumbling around
E chordE Amin7
Tumbling and fumbling mumbling and crumbling down
Amin6
At the speed of sound inbound

E chordE
Sitting on the subway
Odd body odors from the bystanders who stand
E/B chordE/B
Staring on the subway
Lots of different names forced into the same land
Amin7 Amin
As the panhandlers handle their pans

A2 chordA2 E chordE
And I don't know the reason why I stay
F#m7 chordF#m7 F#7 chordF#7
I never get anywhere anyway
A chordA B chordB
On the subway

Bing bong

E chordE
Waiting on the subway
Clock is ticking quicker than it usually does
E/B chordE/B
Hating on the subway
Like it's sitting pretty in the tunnel just because
Amin7
It wants to make me cry
Amin6
Or in the summer melt me 'til I'm dry
A chordA B chordB
Oh why

A2 chordA2 E chordE
And I don't know the reason why I stay
F#m7 chordF#m7 F#7 chordF#7
But I'm still held hostage by the MTA
Cmin7
On the subway

Dmin7
Upstairs up there
Emin7
Everything's going fine
Cmin7
You'd never know that I'm down below
Emin7 Dmin7 Cmin7
And never gonna be on time
Emin7
It's just a bunch of circles
Pretending to be lines

E chordE
pause frustrated sigh

E chordE
Living on the subway
Rushing to whatever tribulation might be next
E/B chordE/B
Giving on the subway
All the out-of-towners on vacation seem perplexed
A chordA
As the B chordB-Boys dance in their baggy pants
And their tinny homemade beats wicky wicky
And the old ladies who miss their Mercedes still gyrate in their seats
And the B chordB-Boys tip their hats for tips
And then rinse and repeat

F chordF#min7
And it's actually kinda sweet
A chordA
Who knows who you might meet
B chordB
Hundreds of feet beneath the street

A chordA E chordE
And I don't know the reason why I stay
F#m7 chordF#m7 F#7 chordF#7
But I'd pick stressful over boring any day
A chordA B chordB E chordE
On the subway
