Em                                Am       Em
In Struggle Town there are tracks of blood,
C                       D          Em
Running up arms, across the mud.
                         Am       Em
They tell a tale of pain and grief,
         C                    D       Em
Where life is short, and time a thief. 

CHORUS
G                               A7
I want to tell you itís a real hard sound,
                C                            D            Em
When they drag those bodies a-cross the ground.
G                                                 A7
But you donít want to know whatís going down
    C                    D        Em
In Struggle Town. Yes, in Struggle Town.

Am / Em / Am / Em

In Struggle Town there are kids and whores,
Selling their bodies outside your doors.
At seventeen they are already old,
Their arms are warm, but their hearts are cold.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Am                              C
In Struggle Town they salute the flag,
        D                             G
They strut the stage, back-slap and brag.
Am                             C
Tell everybody there is nothing to fear,
      D                                          Em     / Am / Em
But look around Ė Struggle Town is here!
                         Am / Em / Am / Em
Struggle Town is here!

[ INSTRUMENTAL BREAK ]

CHORUS
I want to tell you itís a real hard sound,
When they drag those bodies across the ground.
But you donít want to know whatís going down
In Struggle Town...

FINAL CHORUS
I want to tell you itís a real hard sound,
When they drag those bodies across the ground.
But you donít want to know whatís going down
In Struggle Town. Yes, in Struggle Town...
Thatís right - Struggle Town...
Right here in Struggle Town.
