Lyrics

Schenectady

CAPO on 2nd Fret (Key of D)

C F
We’ve been rotting in bars
G
Looking out at the cars
C
As they come barreling through

C F
And they’re wise not to stop
G
Cause it don’t take a lot
C
To get its talons in you


C F
I see people go crazy
G
Get lazy when their life
C
Ain’t got nothing to lose

C F
You’re better off dyin

Then whining
G C
Cause this towns got too many of you


C
Oh Schenectady
F G C
I’ve been waiting so long for you to comfort
F G
But that boy has moved on
Am F
Oh I can’t escape the past, no
Am F
And I won’t forget the truth, no
F
Schenectady
G C
I am you


C
Good men go down
F
While the evil get crowned

G C
No there ain’t no reason at all

C F
We got cops doing lines
G
While beating their wives
C
Claiming their the law


C F
Won’t be long before legends are born
G
To be lifting this
C
century long curse

C F
So if you born in this town
G
No need to look down
C
Cause life don’t get any worse


C
Oh Schenectady
F G C
I’ve been waiting so long for you to comfort
F G
But that boy has moved on
Am F
Oh I can’t escape the past, no
Am F
And I won’t forget the truth, no
F
Schenectady
G C
I am you

C
Oh Schenectady
F G C
I’ve been waiting so long for you to comfort
F G
But that boy has moved on
Am F
Oh I can’t escape the past, no
Am F
And I won’t forget the truth, no
F
Schenectady
G C
I am you
