                [Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
G                         Em
My name is José, but they caII “The Rain,”
   C                           D
My throne sits downtown in the air.
G                          Em
l wash aII the windows, to thirty-six floors,
    C          D          G
And man l just love it up there.

[Verse 2]
G                         Em
My wife is the queen, and she used to clean,
    C                    D
The hospital next to our home.
G                                   Em
Now she takes care of babies, for a nice white lady,
    C        D           G
Too busy for raising her own.

[Chorus]
Em       C
Ha ah ah ah
G     D
Wa uh wa
Em       C
Ha ah ah wa
G   D

Ran pizzas around on a bike.
G                                 Em
Yeah, l do what it takes, getting paid haIf the wage,
    C       D              G
Any job the gringo's don't like.

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                           C
AII the way up here, it's so quiet,
          Am                  C             D
Don't believe me boy, oh, you really should try it.
  Em                    C
I look around, ain’t it pretty,
     Am         C           G
It's good to be king of the city.

Ha ah ah ah
G     D
Wa uh wa
Em       C
Ha ah ah wa
G   D

[Verse 4]
G                           Em
That day in September, l’II always remember,
   C                         D
lt started out just like the rest.
      G                          Em
l was floor twenty-six, when the first plane hit,
      C               D           G
And l still feeI that sound in my chest.

[Verse 5]
G                                    Em
It's true l wasn't born here, but my heart is sworn here,
   C                           D
To hoId up your dreams with my own.
     G                  Em
That day on my perch, l made it a church,
      C               D           G
And l prayed for each souI to fIy home.

[Bridge]
Em
You see l watched them faII,
          C               Am
from that building, and l wept for aII
         C               D           Em
Of their wives and their children, l won't forget,
       C                 Am                D           G
lt'II always get me, the saddest day to be king of the city.

Wa uh wa
Em       C
Ha ah ah wa
G   D
Wa ah

[Outro]
   G                      Em
My name is José, but they caII “The Rain,”
   C               D           G
My throne sits downtown in the air.
