  • Well we're living here in Allentown
    And they're closing all the factories down
    Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
    Filling out forms, standing in line

    / Em7 A D - / Am7 D G - / Em7 A Bm F#m / Em D Asus4 A /

    Well our fathers fought the Second World War
    Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
    Met our mothers in the USO
    Asked them to dance, danced with them slow
    And we're living here in Allentown

    / " / " / " / " / Em7 A D - /

    But the restlessness was handed down
    And it's getting very hard to stay

    / F G C - / Am7 D Em G C D C - Em - C - Em - C - GC G /

    Well we're waiting here in Allentown
    For the Pennsylvania we never found
    For the promises our teachers gave
    If we worked hard, if we behaved

    So the graduations hang on the wall
    But they never really helped us at all
    No they never taught us what was real
    Iron and coke, chromium steel
    And we're waiting here in Allentown

    But they've taken all the coal from the ground
    And the union people crawled away

    Every child had a pretty good shot
    To get at least as far as their old man got
    But something happened on the way to that place
    They threw an American flag in our face

    / F - G F / - - G Bb / F - G F / - - G C - Em - C - Em - C - GC G /

    Well I'm living here in Allentown
    And it's hard to keep a good man down
    But I won't be getting up today

    / Em7 A D - / F G C - / Am7 D Em G C D C - Em - C - Em - /

    And it's getting very hard to stay
    And we're living here in Allentown
