Transpose

				 [Intro chords]
G D F

[Verse 1]

G
“Good God! Don’t Jump!”
G
A boy sat on the ledge
C G
And old man who had fainted was revived
F G G7
And everyone agreed ‘twould be a miracle indeed
C
If the boy survived

[Chorus]

C Dm
“Save the life of my child!”
C G D F
Cried the desperate mother

[Verse 2]

G
The woman from the supermarket
G
Ran to call the cops
C G
“He must be high on something,” someone said
G C
Thought it never made the New York Times

G C
In the Daily News the caption read

[Chorus]

C Dm
“Save the life of my child!”
C G D F
Cried the desperate mother

[Verse 3]

G
A patrol car passing by
G
Halted to a stop
C G
Said officer MacDougal in dismay
G C
“The force can’t do a decent job
G
‘Cause the kids got no respect
C
For the law today” (and blah blah blah)

[Chorus]

C Dm
“Save the life of my child!”
C
Cried the desperate mother
Dm7
“Oh, what’s becoming of the children?”
Dm C
People asking each other

[Verse 4]
G
When darkness fell, excitement kissed the crowd
G
And it made them wild
C G
In an atmosphere of freaky holiday

G
When the spotlight hit the boy
G
The crowd began to cheer
C
He flew away

[Outro]

F C
“Oh my Grace, I got no hiding place”
F C
“Oh my Grace, I got no hiding place”

[repeat and fade]
