Road to Hell

Song Author Chris Rea Lyrics by: Chris Rea Performer: Chris Rea Submitted by: Philips
[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    
[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    
Well, I'm [Am]standing by the river,
But the [Dm]water doesn't flow.
It [F]boils with every [E]poison
You can [Am]think of.

And I'm [Am]underneath the street light,
The de[Dm]light of joy I know,
[F]Scared beyond beli[E]ef,  
Way down in the [Am]shadows.

And the per[C]verted fear of violence,
Chokes a [G]smile on every face,
[F]Common sense is ringing, out the [E]bells.
[Am]This ain't no technological [Dm]breakdown,
Oh-[F]no, this is the [E]road to [Am]hell.

[Am]    [Dm]    [G]    [C]    [Em]    
[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    
And as the [C]roads jam up with credit,
And there's [G]nothing you can do,
It's [F]all just bits of paper,
[E]Flying a way from you.
Oh, [Am]look out world take a good look,
Look who's [Dm]down there,
You must [F]learn this lesson fast, [E]and learn it [Am]well.

This ain't no upwardly mobile [Dm]freeway,
Oh-[F]no, this is the [E]road,
[F]This is the [E]road,
[F]This is the [E]road ... [Am]to hell.

[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    
[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    
[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    
[Am]    [Dm]    [F]    [E]    [Am]    



Well, I'm standing by the river,
But the water doesn't flow.
It boils with every poison
You can think of.

And I'm underneath the street light,
The delight of joy I know,
Scared beyond belief,
Way down in the shadows.

And the perverted fear of violence,
Chokes a smile on every face,
Common sense is ringing, out the bells.
This ain't no technological breakdown,
Oh-no, this is the road to hell.



And as the roads jam up with credit,
And there's nothing you can do,
It's all just bits of paper,
Flying a way from you.
Oh, look out world take a good look,
Look who's down there,
You must learn this lesson fast, and learn it well.

This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway,
Oh-no, this is the road,
This is the road,
This is the road ... to hell.
