Hudson
[Verse]

A              Dm
Hudson died in Hudson bay,
    C              F
The water took his victim's name,
    Gm               F
The River's rise told riverside,
   E
To change their names again.

(Choral humming)

  A                  Dm
A stranger walked in through the door,
      C              F
Said "All apartments are pre-war",
   Gm                      F
We laughed and I asked him for his name,
   E
He stayed until the end.

   A                   Dm
We watched the Germans play the Greeks,
   C           F
He marked the 99 year lease,
    Gm                   F
Our fathers signed which I declined,
   E
To try and comprehend.

(Choral humming)


[Chorus]

Gm        F                  C            F
Over and over again are these never-ending visions,
Gm       F                 C
Over and over again like a prize that's changed in hands,
Gm           F
The time has come,
    C               Dm
The clock is such a drag,
C           Dm
All you who changed your stripes,
    Bb             F
Can wrap me in the flag.


[Verse]

    A         Dm
The legendary wooden gate,
    C                 F
The first established real-estate,
   Gm                F
Is lost in time like all the crimes
     E
That won this pleasant land.


[Chorus]

Gm        F                  C               F
Over and over again are these never-ending visions,
Gm       F                 C
Over and over again like a prize that's changed in hands,
Gm           F
The time has come,
    C               Dm
The clock is such a drag,
C           Dm
All you who changed your stripes,
    Bb             F
Can wrap me in the flag.

(Choral humming)


[Verse]

A              Dm
Hudson died in Hudson bay,
    C             F
But I was born on Sutton Place,
    Gm                 F
The rising tide helped me decide,
   E
To change my name again.

A                Dm
Some men tend to linger on,
    C                    F
And some make haste from Babylon,
Gm                   F
Some will roam their ruined home,
    E
Rejoicing... till the end.


[Chorus]

Gm        F                  C               F
Over and over again are these never-ending visions,
Gm        F                C                       
Over and over again like a prize that's changed in hands,
Gm           F
The time has come,
    C               Dm
The clock is such a drag,
C           Dm         
All you who changed your stripes,
    Bb             F
Can wrap me in the flag.

Gm             F
The lines are drawn,
    C             Dm
The map is such a drag,
C            Dm
All you who changed your stripes,
    Bb             F
Can wrap me in the flag.
