Journey Lights Chords And Lyrics 
Demo Tips & Pdf

Steve Perry wrote this song about Los Angeles originally but never had it quite finished when he joined Journey. After moving to San Francisco where the band originated, he modified the lyrics and finished the song.  Released as a single in 1977, the song was only a minor hit peaking at #68 on Billboard. But live, it's a concert favourite.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = No 
  • Rhythm = if you playing just strums you could play down down down up down up and repeat as as you'll see here I'm using a bit or arpeggio mixed with rhythm

  • Chords = D, Bm, C, G, A 

Journey Lights Lyrics 

When the lights go down in the City
And the sun shines on - the bay
I want to be there - in my city - Ooh, ooh

So you think - you're lonely
Well my friend I'm lonely too
I want to get back - to my city by the bay - Ooh, ooh

It's sad - oh - there's been mornings out on the road
Without you - Without your charms
Ooh, my, my, my my my my - Ooh, ooh

When the lights go down in the City
And the sun shines on - the bay
I want to be there - in my city - Ooh, ooh

When the lights go down in the City
And the sun shines on - the bay
I want to be there - in my city - Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh
