1. I was bruised and bat-tered, I could-n't tell what I felt 
        Am
   I was  un-rec-og-ni-zable to my-self
               F
   I saw my re-flec-tion in a win-dow and I didn't know my own face
              Am
   Oh bro-ther  are you gon-na leave me wast-ing a-way 
                            Bbsus2     F/A          Csus4         C
   On the streets of Phil-a-del-phi-a___   La la la     La la la    La la la la
Bbsus2       F/A          Csus4         C
   La la la     La la la      La la la    La la la

2. I walked the  a-ven-ue till my legs felt like stone
              Am
   I heard the  voi-ces of friends va-nished and gone
                    F
   At night I could  hear the blood in my veins
          Am
   Just as  black and whis-pe-ring as the rain
                     Bbsus2            F/A          Csus4         C
   On the streets of Phil-a-del-phi-a___   La la la     La la la    La la la la

   La la la     La la la      La la la    La la la

Bridge: Ain't no angel gonna greet me
      Bb                       F
        It's just you and I my friend
      Am                     Bb
        And my clothes don't fit me no more
   Csus4                                  C
        I walked a thousand miles just to slip this skin |  𝄎  |

  F      
3. The night has fal-len, I'm ly-in' a-wake
        Am
   I can  feel my-self fa-ding a-way
         F
   So re-ceive me bro-ther with your faith-less kiss
             Am
   Or will we  leave each o-ther a-lone like this
                            Bbsus2     F/A          Csus4         C
   On the streets of Phil-a-del-phi-a___   La la la     La la la    La la la la
Bbsus2       F/A          Csus4         C
   La la la     La la la      La la la    La la la...(repeat to fade)
