[Verse 1]
            Am                 
Well, I'm standing by a river, 
         Dm
but the water doesn't flow
   F                      E          Am
It boils with every poison   you can think of
        Am                           
And I'm underneath the street light, 
      Dm
the delight of joy I know
F                  E                  Am
Scared beyond belief, way down in the shadows
 
[Bridge]
           C
And the perverted fear of violence
           G
Chokes the smile on every face
F                               E
Common sense is ringing out the bells
 
[Chorus]
Am                            Dm
  This ain't no technological breakdown
   F               E       Am
Oh no, this is the road to hell
 
[Slide Solo]
| Am  | Am  | Dm  | Dm  |
| G   | G   | C   | G/B |
| Am  | Am  | Dm  | Dm  |
| F   | E   | Am  | Am  |
 
[Bridge]
            C
And all the roads jam up with credit
            G
And there's nothing you can do
     F                       
It's all just bits of paper, 
E
flying away from you
 
[Verse]
    Am                                
Oh, look out world, take a good look, 
          Dm
what goes down here
         F                       
You must learn this lesson fast, 
E              Am
  and learn it well
 
[Chorus]
Am                              Dm
  This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway
   F                 E
Oh no, this is the road
F              E
  This is the road
F              E          Am
  This is the road ... to hell
 
[Outro Solo]
| Am  | Am  | Dm  | Dm  |
| F   | E   | Am  | Am  |
(Play x6 and fade out)
