Graham Parker – Devil's Sidewalk lyrics

Like No Holding Back you can get the main melody (riff) in your head
To play over over the intro chords, you're set.

Capo at 2 makes the transitions more manageable for
Solo guitar. Chords mapped out as if they were open.

Em C Em / / /
Em C Em / / /
Em C Em D

G C D C
Took a walk down hell's pavement
G C D C
Took a walk down pulled by the tide
G C D C
I had to make some new arrangement
Em C G
Oh I thought I'd reach the other side
D Em C G
Then someone opened up their mouth to talk
D Em C G D
They said (hey!) you ain't where you think you are
Em C Em D
You just landed on the devil's sidewalk

G C D C
Had a minor misunderstanding
G C D C
With a street lamp one night
G C D C
The smell of burning... Rubber hit my senses
Em C G
I thought I'd reach the other side
D Em C G
When someone opened up their mouth to talk
D Em C G D
They said (hey!) you ain't where you think you are

Em C Em D
You're just stranded on the devil's sidewalk
Em C Em D
You're just stranded on the devil's sidewalk

F#m Am7
And it's cold, so cold
F#m Am7
And it's cold, so cold
F#m Am7 D
And it's cold, so cold

G D G C
No-one's got names, under the flames
G D G C
Everyone screams, hope it's a dream
G D G C F#m
Nothing makes sense, everything's tense
Bm D
Wish I could say what it meant

G C D C
Took a long look down at the mirror
G C D C
Couldn't see my face at all
G C D C
Just those strait lines, leading to nowhere
Em C G
Oh I thought I'd reach the other side
D Em C G
When someone opened up their mouth as if to talk
D Em C G D
They said (hey!) you ain't where you think you are

Em C Em D
You just landed on the devil's sidewalk

Em C Em D
You just landed on the devil's sidewalk

Repeat and fade
