The song opens with street sounds from New York City - car horns, sirens,
police whistle, a fruit vendor calling "...this is it, fresh fruit...fresh

  Guitar tacet for synth intro.

  Note:  Bracketed notes below are "touch" harmonics which are executed by
  fretting a CaddG chord (see below) in the first position and plucking the
  string with the thumb or pick while touching 12 frets above the fretted
  note with the tip of the picking hand index finger.

Lyrics:

Spoken w/NY accent
...this is it, fresh fruit...fresh fruit...


Grim-faced and forbidding, their faces closed tight
An angular mass of New Yorkers
Pacing in rhythm, race the oncoming night
They chase through the streets of Manhattan
Headfirst humanity, pause at a light
Then flow through the streets of the city

They seem oblivious to a soft spring rain
Like an English rain
So light, yet endless
From a leaden sky

The buildings are lost in the limitless rise
My feet catch the pulse and the purposeful stride.
I feel the sense of possibilities
I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city

Wide angle watcher on life's ancient tales
Steeped in the history of London
Green and gray washes in the wispy white vail
Mist in the streets of Westminster
Wistful and weathered, the pride still prevails
Alive in the streets of the city

Are they oblivious to this quality
A quality
Of light unique to every city street.

spoken w/British accent
...Hullo...
...Mornin' Gov'

Pavements may team with intense energy
But the city is calm in this violent sea.

Solo

I feel the sense of possibilities
I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city

Disclaimer:
This tablature represents how the song is played as closely as reasonably
achievable to the studio recording.  Alex Lifeson may have played it
slightly differently.


Tablature Explanation:
NT   = Nashville Tuning is when the low E, A and D strings are replaced with
       lighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal.
|    = bar separating measures
~    = vibrato
x    = percussive note with no pitch; muted note
.    = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h    = hammer
p    = pull
s    = slide (used when \ or / don't fit)
^    = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
r    = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)
t    = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
x/   = pick slide up
x\   = pick slide down
<5>  = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[5]  = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
(5)  = note sustained from previous measure
o    =\ repeat sign
o    =/
DC   = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials
        you go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
DS   = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
        only as far as the (%) sign.
Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that brings
       it to a formal close.
Al
Coda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the end
          section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
RF   = repeat and fade
rit  = "ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.

Other pertinent information:
  Tempo:  1/4 note = ???
  Tuning:  Standard [EADGBe].
  Key signature:
  Effects:  Overdrive, Chorus, Flanging.

Tablature Format:

This Tablature is based on the format indicated below.

  1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4     <--Quarter note beat locations
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8   1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8   <--Eighth note beat locations
                                      <--Effects/Misc Line
  D                 C     G/B         <--Chord Line
  e e e q   q   e   e e e q   e e e   <--Note Duration Line (table below)
|-----2-----------|-----------------| <--High E string

|---2-------2---0-|-----0-------0---| <--G string
|-0---------------|---2-------0---0-| <--D string
|-----------------|-3-----2---------| <--A string
|-----------------|-----------------| <--E string

Effects/Misc Line:  Provides effects information, number of repeats, etc.

Chord Line:  Provides the chord name for the chords used in the
             tab below.

Note Duration Line:  Provides the "value" of each note, e.g., whole,
                     half, quarter, etc.

Note Duration Designator Table:
  w = Whole note                   h = Half note
  q = Quarter note                 H = Dotted half note
  Q = Dotted Quarter note          s = Sixteenth note
  e = Eighth note                  S = Dotted sixteenth note
  E = Dotted eighth note           + = Duration exceeds 2 measures
  t = Thirty-second note
  T = Dotted thirty-second note

  Notes with two designations immediately adjacent to each other
  have durations added (e.g., he = half note + eigth note, etc.)

String lines:  Represent the strings of a guitar.  The tab is laid
               out as if you placed a right handed guitar on your
               lap, string side up.  A vertical line character "|"
               represents a bar between measures.  A dash "-" represents
               each string.  The numbers indicate which fret should
               be fingered to sound the note.  The first space after
               every bar is a blank space that is almost never used.
               Quarter notes are separated by 3 dashes, eighth notes
               are separated by 1 dash.  In an effort to make the
               ASCII tab look as much like tab in a music book, the
               notes are spaced out as accurately as possible.  In the
               event the notes will not fit into the format shown above,
               the tab will be expanded (usually only required for
               solos).
