CROSSFIRE - JETHRO TULL (1980)

 

Verse One-Keyboard Intro- Bb - C

Spring light in a hazy May

                          Ebm7                        Csus27

and a man with a gun at the door

                              Am7                                      Dm7

Someone's crawling on the roof above-

                   Ebm7                                             Csus27

all the media here for the show

                                         Am7                             Dm7

I've been waiting for our friends to come

                 Ab               Bb                          Cm

Like spiders down ropes to free-fall

                      Ab                                 Bb            Cm

A thirty round clip for a visiting card-

                       Ab                      Bb               Cm

admit one to the embassy ball

                             Ab                            Bb             C

 

 

 

 

Chorus

Caught in the crossfire on Princess Gate Avenue

          Gm                                              C(no 3rd)               Dm

In go the windows and out go the lights

                   Gm                          (all 5ths) Bb-C-Eb-F

Call me a doctor. Fetch me a policeman

                   Gm                            C(no 3rd)        Dm

I'm down on the floor in one hell of a fight

                   Gm                                                Bb    C

I'm just a soul with an innocent face-

VERSE 2      Ebm7                                     Csus27

a regular boy dressed in blue

                               Am7                                          Dm7

conducting myself in a proper way

                          Ebm7                                      Csus27

as befitting the job that I do

                                Am7                                         Dm7

They came down on me like a ton of bricks

                 Ab                              Bb                      Cm

Swept off my feet, knocked about

                           Ab                      Bb                      Cm

There's nothing for it but to sit and wait

                            Ab                                            Bb           Cm

for the hard men to get me out

                             Ab                                    Bb          C

 

 

Chorus

 

Caught in the crossfire on Princess Gate Avenue

In go the windows and out go the lights

                      Gm                 (all 5ths)Bb-C-Eb-F

Call me a doctor. Fetch me a policeman

                       Gm                         C(no 3rd)           Dm

I'm down on the floor in one hell of a fight

                        Gm                                              Bb     C

Calm reason floats from the street below

                    Ebm7                                                Csus27

and the slow fuse burns through the night

                     Am7                                                               Dm7

Everyone's tried to talk it through

                           Ebm7                                           Csus27

but they can't seem to get the deal right

                          Am7                                                         Dm7

Somewhere there are Brownings in a two-hand hold-

           Ab                                Bb                            Cm

cocked and locked, one up the spout

                          Ab                                  Bb                 Cm

There's nothing for it but to sit and wait

                          Ab                                              Bb             Cm

for the hard men to get me out

                                Ab                                 Bb          C
