       D

1. Friday night and I'm going nowhere,

     G                                           D              - G

    all the lights are changing green to red.

       D

    Turning over T.V. stations,

      G                                               D     - G

    situations running through my head.

       D

    Looking back through time, you know,

             G                                                       D    - G

    it's clear that I've been blind, I've been a fool

         D                                          G

    to open up my heart to all that jealousy,

                                    D             - G - E

    that bitterness, that ridicule.

 

       D

2. Saturday I'm running wild,

           G                                       D                  - G

    an' all the lights are changin', red to green.

        D

    Moving through the crowds, I'm pushin',

        G                                           D                 - G

    chemicals are rushing in my bloodstream.

               D

    Only wish that you were here,

                             G                                          D     - G

    you know I'm seein' it so clear, I've been afraid

            D

    to show you how I really feel,

          G                                          D                         - G

    admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made.

 

D                            A                          - Em                        F#m

    And if you want it, come an' get it,           for crying out loud,

D                           A                   Em                   G

    the love that I was givin' you was never in  doubt.

D                            A                            Em                     A

    Let go of your heart, let go of your head, and feel it now,

D                          A                             Em                      A

    let go of your heart, let go of your head, and feel it now !

3. Sunday, all the lights in London shining,

                          D                - G

    sky is fading red to blue,

      D

    kickin' through the autumn leaves

              G                                                   D          - G

    and wonderin' where it is you might be going to.

      D

    Turnin' back for home, you know,

            G                                      D        - G

    I'm feeling so alone, I can't believe,

      D                                        G

    climbin' on the stair I turn around

                                            D                    - G

    to see you smiling there in front of me.

 

+  CHORUS

 

    D                            A                            Em                     A

+      Let go of your heart, let go of your head, and feel it now,

D                          A                             Em                      A

    let go of your heart, let go of your head, and feel it now !

+  Babylon,       Babylon,       Babylon,        Babylon !

              D     - G - D - D
