Rain Falls In Amsterdam by Eric Andersen Guitar Chords

[Intro]
Am G F E

Am G
The rain falls down in Amsterdam the streets are wet and black
F Esus
Midnights like November by the glow of a cigarette
Am F

The girls on hash in station square looking stupid from the drugs
G E
When Marlene heard the boots march there were reasons to be dumb
Am
Shiny helmuts in the shadows
F
Those trains that left at night
Am F
Those hiding in the cellars those eyes afraid of light
Am F
Something neath the border’s poured poison in the well
G Am
The creature has uncoiled and is crawling up from hell
Dm Am
Here comes 1914 1932
G
Those cattle cars and yellow stars
Am
It’s right back to the roots
Dm Am
It’s movin in the open with a snarl and a growl
G Am
The cages have been broken and the beast is on the prowl
Am G
Fire bomb those houses burn those refugees
F
Be the crowd and do your work
E Am
Applauding silently round up all the gypsies
F
Go sell them on the trains
G
Can’t you smell the smoke now
E
Drifting through the rain
Am
Jews better draw your curtains
F
You better lock your doors up tight
Am F
They’re snarling up in Rostock in the beer hall belly nights
Am
The Fourth Reich’s coming now baby
F G
They’re writing out the page in Rome, Berlin, and Stockholm
Am
The beast has left the cage
Dm Am
Here comes 1932 here comes deja vu
G
Those cattle cars and yellow stars
Am
Was there someone that you knew
Dm Am
It’s right there in the open somethings smelling bad
G Am
The cages have been broken and the beast is a running mad
Am
Those canals and cozy houses
G
Those reflections in the light
F
You can almost feel it moving
Esus
The monster in the night
Am
It’s looking with it’s yellow eyes
F G
It’s out to settle scores in the dim medieval distance
E
Feel it breathing down your pores
Am
In Salt Lake City and in Rio
F
The beast can smell the flames
Am F
It’s faxing hate out in Marseilles typing out your name
Am F
You can hear the windows shatter as the time is drawing near
G
Kristall Nacht come to town
Am
Welcome back to the house of mirrors
G Am
The fire and the armbands and the iron arm salutes
G E
Pointing to the scapegoat was it me or was it you
Am
It’s right there in the open
G
Don’t just stand there hoping
F
the leashes have been broken
Am
And the dogs are on the loose
Am G
Now I have been here thinking how lucky I have been
F E
I never touched the barb wire never saw the money grin
Am F
No rifle ever smashed my face no bare electric shock
G
But I’ll confess up
E
All I know who I am and who I’m not
Am F
To see retired killers is to see the lion yawn
Am F
The shinheads do their dirtywork for the cloak and dagger pawns
Am
The dark eyes will be waiting there
F
When the borders they are crossed
G Am
So keep your filthy swastikas and shove your iron cross
Dm Am
Here comes 1914 1932
G
Those cattle cars and yellow stars
Am
It’s right back to the roots
Dm
It’s out there in the open
Am
It’s crawling on the move
G Am
The cages have been broken and the beast is on the loose
Am
Can’t you smell the blood now

Can’t you smell the truth
Am
And the rain falls down in Amsterda
